Trat, go to Cambodia or Bangkok?

A journal entry from: World Tour 2008

Now I'm Trat, hesitating about where to go. Cambodia or Bangkok. I really would like to go back to Bangkok. But deeper inside I would like to explore Cambodia, Vietnam and Laos. And it would be easiet to just go there from here, I'm so close.

  Yesterday I came to the island Ko Chang but I got really homesick and left this morning to Trat. The closest city around. When i came here I realised that this province has the most malaria in Thailand and that made me even more homesick.

   Actually when I left the bungalow this morning in Ko Chang I didn't know where I was going. I asked one place on the way to the big road if they had a free bungalow but they hadn't. And I just decided to take the ferry from there and somewhere else. Trat where I am now is a good startpoint to go somewhere. But home is too far, so I can't go there.

Well I might just buy a mini bus ticket to Cambodia, they always try to rip you off somehow with the minibuses, arriving too late and so on. But it is almost impossible to go there with public buses/boats.

I don't know why I'm this homesick, but I really want to go back the civilization. But I guess I just go further away from it tomorrow.

Finally i decided to go to Cambodia - Sihanoukville. I bought bus ticket from my guesthouse all the way to Sihanoukville for 10 euro. Cheap cheap! And I'm leaving 5h30 tomorrow morning, so maybe time to get the bed soon!
