A Coconut break was most refreshing...

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A24_zps0e322664.jpg)
was a steep climb to the came...

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A15_zps027e927c.jpg)
The slopes were rocky....

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A16_zpsa257f5b9.jpg)
Route was scenic...
Had to climb the 1st hill as the waves were too high for the boats to bring us there.
I way fortunate that Tong had been there and knows there is a alternate path if the boat can't make it.

The beach at Samroiyot was quiet and relaxing...


(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A38_zps9d2c4135.jpg)

The guys were so relax...

The Train Market

The amazing transformation from a busy market
and keeping the shades & goods to let the train pass...
In just a few minutes..
Location is south of Bangkok off Highway 35.

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A42_zpsf1e91aeb.jpg)

Notice the tracks on the floor of the market.

He was a good host... and we learn about farming...

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A45_zpsfb9dfd01.jpg)

A walk around the farm.

Phanom Rung

The Khumer temple that was build in the same period as Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A50_zps04a695b7.jpg)

Temple was well preserved..

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A52_zpsab0454bc.jpg)

Preah Vihear

The disputed temple at the Cambodia/Thai border.
World court had awarded the temple to Cambodia.
So the reason for the day trip thru Cambodia as the entrance only from the Cambodia side.
No entrance charges... just a donation

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A59_zps49f67069.jpg)

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A57_zps77a8a3c9.jpg)

Bit of adminstration crossing the borders... Passport, export cert for Thai side..
And vehicle inspection Cambodian side... (Much time wasted)

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A61_zps6f926c95.jpg)

Meditation time....

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A61_zps6f926c95.jpg)

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A62_zps59a63194.jpg)

Temple is build next to the cliff...
Spectacular view...

(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A67_zpsc930ff0c.jpg)


(IMG:http://i990.photobucket.com/albums/af24/spectrum2200/2015/A69_zps7194449f.jpg)

The last 200m was rocky...
But Lawrence ST made it up... and down.
