Hello every one!!!!!

Welcome on my journey...

It has been along time since my previous review so it is time for the next one.

Alright, let start our journey...Again this is a road trip but longer distance.

Our first destination is Ratchaprapa Dam where I have book for the room including meal for 2 people at Phaer Nang Prai Resort (1,000 THB/person) and also contact the boat tour of Kru Dam. We also have another joiner with us to share our boat rental. We are departure in the evening in order to be at Ratchaprapa Dam in the morning and to see the first light. Due to road is under construction and traffic so we arrive there quite late. However, everything is release once we get the fresh air and a wonderful atmosphere.

Then my happiness moment is gone when Phrae Nang Pai calls us and tells us that they have to give our room to the others and they offer us to stay at Phrae Klong Mon instead. But as we have another joiners who stay at Phrae Klongka, we cannot stay there because it is on the other side. So we call our joiners, Khun Ae and family and they invite us to stay with them.

"In a bad time, we still can find some good moments"

It is time to get on the boat...

Just forget all the bad things and enjoy the moment in front of us...

(We suggest you to wear life jacket at all time)

It is such a very big dam and the biggest that we have ever seen...

Oh NO....It looks like it is going to rain....

These are our joiners, Khun Ae, Khun Wat and their mother who are so kind to let us stay with them.

Finally we are here at Phrae Klongka ......^___^

Once we arrive at Phrae Klongka, we find another problem, as Phrae Nang Prai did not contact them at all so we have to call Phrae Nang Prai again. We are so thankful for staff at Phrae Klongka who help us to contact them and get the refund back. After clear everything, let's go discover the area which has a very good atmosphere and clear water where you can many fishes down there.

Then check - in and get welcome drink to cool down ourselves. And it is time to get to know each other with Khun Ae and her family. It seems like we have known each other for ages and they are all so nice. We have so fun swimming in the dam together.

We ask them to buy some drinks for us but they give us for free...Thank you very much ^^

And it is time for dinner...every menu can be refilled except fried fish.

After a big dinner, it is time to sit back and relax.....

Just enjoy the good moment around us...

And hope that we will see the beautiful first light in the morning ....[^____^]

Good morning!!!! It is my time, bring out my camera and get on kayak to my corner.

Wonderful moment in the morning....

Really want to freeze this moment..... ^^

Sooner will be time for us to leave...why the happiness moment always so short...

Time to get going....

Taking the boat of Kru Dam back and stop by at Khao Sam Kluer which is another highlight of Ratchaprapa Dam.

Once we get to the pier, it is time to say good to our joiners, Khun Ae and her family...It is such a very good friendship between us.

We departure from the dam to Khao Lak, it is raining along the way there. We can collect only a few photo because it is still raining.

We move on to Samed Nangchee Viewpoint where we intent to camp but it is still raining so we have to stay in Baan Hin Rom Pier Home Stay instead.

In the morning we borrow motorcycle to ride around the area...

After taking a few photo, it is raining again so we come back to the pier and take some photos then go for lunch and continue our journey.

Just so you know...seafood is really fresh!!!!

View from the back and the front of home stay...

Samed Nangchee Viewpoint is so beautiful, you should come to visit if you have a chance.

After collecting enough photos, we are heading to our next destination which is Phuket...

We hope come to collect the photo in the evening with twilight moment but it is raining and very windy...sometime it looks so scary.

Tonight we stay at The Frutta Boutique Hotel which is located in Patong Beach Area. It is not too expensive with good service, clean room and also has a swimming pool.

After a nice sleep, it is time to go home with a distance of over 1,111KM...

Stop by at China 3 Dim Sum Restaurant for charging our energy for a long journey... it is very delicious....

Then continue our long journey back and stop by at Prachuap Khirikhan for dinner. We cannot remember the name of the restaurant, it is the first restaurant at the beach and it is not too expensive.

After that we are heading directly home...It is such a long way to drive in one day....

Total expense of this trip

Petrol + LPG (2,200 KM) = 3,500 THB

Boat = 1,000THB/ 2 Pax

Car parking = 80 THB

Entrance fee = 80THB/ 2 Pax

Phrae Klongka = 1,000 THB/ 2 Pax
