Chanthaburi Transportation

  • by yen_2 Written Mar 1, 2004

    That Isuzu there was the one we used! Hubbys driver I was using since he can't go with me by that time. And mind you, the driver was a middle 40's woman! Yah, it's true not kidding! That's why I had the great time touring the whole Chanthaburi, but there are some of the places I had to skip to as we had run out of time and I was very tired! Thanks to Nong for the drive!=p

    The pic was taken just in the narrow road of Sukhapibal-famous for the old buildings.
