We didn’t rush out today but still left at 9:00 am. Today’s route was similar to yesterday, almost 50 km on different types of road.
The first section followed Route 4, even though it is a dual carriageway we did not see very much traffic at all and in common with our visits to the 4 previously there is a shoulder wide enough to drive a car along.
Turning off the main road it was almost immediately traffic free, it went from a tarmac surface to concrete slabs to dirt track before returning to the 4 for a last short visit today.
We had our break at a gas station (petrol station), in Thailand there are virtually no public toilets, so if you need to go the only places are at the main gas stations.
Then we followed the 4046 into Sikao, this was busier than the main road, it still had a good shoulder to cycle down.
It took a while to find the accommodation, it was from Google maps and not on a web site. There was not even a sign indicating it was here. We just saw something like a “resort” and asked some people who shouted someone else who did indeed own the resort.
Costing 700 Baht it is a little more expensive but the room is brand new, perfectly clean with lots of windows and an outside patio seating area. It even has a kettle which seems to be very rare in Thailand.
After a shower it was a short cycle ride back to town where we ended up in a pizza place. The food was OK / very average, we would go somewhere else if we were here a second night.
Once back the usual sitting around trying to convince ourselves to eat another banana. We bought some, then had a bunch given us at the last accommodation then had another bunch given us here. How many bananas are too many bananas?
At around 7:00 pm there was a knock at the door, the owner had brought us some food. The fish was lovely, the one in the soup was spicy.
The Strava route today.
