Prague is the largest city as well as the capital of the Czech Republic. It has its own unique character with baroque architecture and many Gothic churches throughout the city. I traveled there from Krakow, Poland by a tourist bus from the main station. The bus ride took me about 7 hours in total and the ticket both ways cost 70 PLN ($20). I arrived around 6:45 am and it was still dark outside, so I found the closest open place, which was of course a McDonald and started drinking coffee while I waited until sunrise.

You can find many options to where you want to stay depending on your budget. Having the mindset that Bangkok may have crazy traffic, I subconsciously picked hotels close to our interest points.

Journey from Koh Tao to Koh Lanta took us about 10 hours and had quite a few steps. We bought our tickets from the office at Mae Haad Pier the day before our departure. We decided to try another company – Lomprayah and paid 1300 baht each. The ferry was scheduled for 6 am, so at 5:30 am we were up and ready to go.

Lomprayah boats are smaller and faster, when you add a very turbulent sea, you will have me suffering from my first motion sickness episode. Trust me it was the longest boat ride I can recall, even though it only lasted about 1.5 hours.
