So we finally made it through the border of Thailand after 3 hours, we always find it highly amusing to see how unorganised the immigration officers are, and as annoying as it can be, you just have to keep smiling!
So out of all 27 countries, Thailand wins second prize for having the most ridiculous, unorganised border crossing, China wins first prize by far with a shocking 7 hours of interrogation.. but that was always going to happen, but Thailand is a real surprise, in the past we’ve never had a problem in Thailand, but each border is always different, as is each day.
The Coronavirus situation is getting much worse, thankfully we made it through both China and Vietnam in time, as Vietnam is now stopping people entering, we did wonder if we would have a problem entering Thailand as we cycled through Cambodia, but no problem at the border regarding the virus, they are not even screening anyone🤔😳
..we just wear a mask when in any areas with tourists, border crossings are one of the most high risk areas for any kind of germs, that and public transport, but we only cycle so that’s not a problem for us.
Anyway, we eventually got back on the road and have managed to find our favourite roads, the old dusty ones 😂 taking us through all the villages and farmland as we head south to the coast.
In each village there’s an abundance of fresh fruit and all other types of fresh foods, and Thai food is our favourite, well that and Indian 😋
Just like Cambodia, when you cycle off the beaten track it’s very easy to find a camping spot in Thailand, in a couple of days we will be back on the coast, so will be back to camping on the beach 🥳
