Na een dagje rusten besloten we de Helfire pas te doen. We namen de 3 uur durende trein (ja terug houten bankjes) naar Nam Tok. De treinrit is zeer bekend vanwege de WOII historie. Iedere 2 meter viel er een dode. Daar stonden we toch eventjes bij stil en het had ook een creepy gevoel de treinrit te maken.

We then went to a cave to visit a buddah who lives down there which was full of bats! Then dinner on the floating barge. Eddies ... read more
