When purchasing train tickets, or any tickets for that matter, try and be sure of what you are paying for. My brother and I thought we purchased a first class air conditioned train from Trang to Hua Hin. What we got was not first class, and we didn't have the best trip as it turned out.
Unique Suggestions: We managed to try and have a good time on the train, but we did get ripped off on what we paid for.
On that note, we did meet some nice people on the train and made the best of it all (see album on hompage for more on this train ride).
Fun Alternatives: I don't know what to suggest, except to pay close attenton to where and who you buy your tickets from. We thought the deal was good, but once you are in Trang it is a little too late to go back to Ko Lanta and complain.
The place called waterfalls is on the south part of the island. Due to the roads its difficult to get there.
The distance from the mainroad to the waterfalls is approximately 3Km, but the main problem is: THE WATERFALLS ARE DRY!!!
