We had a wonderful buffet breakfast in the dining room at the Nana beach hotel. This hotel was far busier than any others we have stayed however the food was great a good selection of American and local Thai food. I tried a banana leaf wrapped sticky rice with egg custard, it was delicious! We set off on the bikes around 8:15, stopping at the small town of Thungwualaen beach “literally the bull that ran away” to admire the bull statue and beach. We headed on along the coast again turning inland to stop at a rubber plantation and see how the latex is extracted and saved in cans strapped to the trees. Very rural and rich in beaches and rivers we encountered, cocunut plantations,shrimp farming fishing villages, cows and buffalo. The cows are often accompanied by white birds, they eat the flies that swarm around the cows. After a water break we rejoined the main road and cycled to our lunch stop for more great Thai dishes. 15 km on we stopped and loaded the bikes into the van and drove into our hotel. The Suksomboom hotel on the outskirts of Surat Thani.
