Day 6 – near Mueng Phangnga to Karon Beach – 110km in 5hrs


I woke around 6am at the beautiful Manora Garden resort, the owners of the resort made me breakfast. I settled my bill and for two meals, a Chang and my room it was only 600baht. I felt like I got so much more value than just this “stuff”, what lovely people! On my way out they snapped a few pictures of me so they could tell their other guests in future about the crazy cyclist guy who had stayed over.

I headed off on highway 4 past the main town called Mueng Phangnga. I was on mission to get to the end point because my ass was raw and I had been on the road for 6 days and nearly 850km (by the end of day 6). I pushed hard and rode at a solid 22,5 km per hour including stops.

Finally i got to the Phuket bridge, this was a really awesome achievement, but it still meant I had about 60km to travel to Karon beach. Phuket wasn’t much of an island, it was like the mainland it was so big. Phuket felt so much more busy than what I was used to, there was traffic everywhere, scary as hell at times.

I kept seeing signs for Phuket town, Pa Tong, Karon beach, but it didn’t feel like I was getting any closer.
