Highway 33 Village – Nakon Nayok 36km
A cruisy day of riding with a head wind into Nakon Nayok which is a city of 155000 friendly people. On check in at the hotel and seeing our passports we were immediately put onto the phone as the owners son had studied at Canterbury Uni, NZ……what are the odds of that! He (Bang) came and met us and took us for a drive and showed us around Nakon Nayok including his families organic orchard.
Nakon Nayok – Kabin Buri = 68km
Up early departing Nakon Nayok to get day 3 of pedalling underway and a bigger day planned. Great road, lots more to see today, less traffic and all in all a great day of riding despite the head wind which we think we are going to have for quite some time. Arrived at this cute we town of Kabin Buri and once again have hit the jackpot with our guesthouse. We have decided to stay 2 nights here to pace the riding, as we know Cambodia will be tough going. We are now also only 100km from the Cambodian border and as this border crossing is renowned as one of the most corrupt and dodgy in SE Asia so we want to be on top of our game and mentally prepare ourselves! We are having such a great time here in Thailand with the food, the people and always a cold Leo close by.
