Road tripping. Driving. Tar and concrete below the wheels. Trucks, Pickups, motorcycles, all sharing the highway.
8 hours between Bangkok and the Bkkeater's first destination: Khao Sok National Park in Surat Thani.
Midway it was Midday.
We stopped at a PTT station on the side of the road heading North (we u-turned). Both the Mrs. and I felt our hunger pangs at exactly the same second and decided we'll stop at the next eatery on either side of the road, and PTT it was.
A u-turn, a quick peak at a 'Islamic Restaurant' too see if they served any interesting curries, and into PTT food court it was.
2 curries, one of clam (super spicy) and a fish curry (unbelievably spicy). We finished every bite, it was good, good thing we can eat spicy food.
Canteen style service, good smiles all around though.
There was an atmosphere?
At under a 100 baht to eat fish and clams, I'd say it is a great value. The hot stomache did mean ice-cream from the adjacent family mart...
A good option for those on the road.
