We also slept better last night in Lat Krabang.

Today we are going to Haad Chao Lao. Yesterday we agreed to depart between ten and eleven o'clock. Because there still has to be vacuumed, it becomes half past eleven.
It is the first time this trip that Tom drives a car in Thailand. Getting used to traffic gets very fast, after 10 minutes it already feels very familiar. Getting used to the car takes a bit longer, about a hundred kilometers, even if it is not the first time that we drive this car.
We drive on the Motorway in Chonburi, and luckily there is not that much traffic. Then follows a piece on a fairly busy road towards Bang Bueng. We are then about 75 kilometers on the road. From Bang Bueng it is a good road to Klaeng and further towards Chanthaburi. On the way we stop to drink coffee and something to eat.
We find the exit to Haad Chao Lao easy and we arrive at three o'clock. We first look at the hotel where we have already been on our previous trip, the Hadsaithong Resort. There are rooms available, and during ourprevious trip we liked is here. We take the only room with a sea view for three nights, 3000 Thb (88 Euro) per night, including breakfast. The hotel seems to be quite full, a large group of teachers from a university in Surin.

When we have unpacked we take a walk on the beach, and then we eat and drink something in the restaurant of the resort. There is a large group in the resort, but they eat somewhere else, and there are also a few single guests. The tide comes up during dinner, and this is accompanied by quite high waves, unexpected because one or two hours earlier the water was still mirror smooth.
The rest of the evening we sit on our terrace watching the sunset, and very strange fruits or something in the tree on the terrace.

We tell what we have done and experienced during a trip and we also tell what we think about it; no more and no less.

This is not a travel guide, nor is it advice to visit a place or not. There are other sites for that.
Our opinion about places where we have eaten, drunk or slept is not intended as a (positive or negative) assessment, there are other sites for that.
It is our view of the situation at a certain moment and that view is influenced by our mood, the weather and many other factors.
