Coming back to South East Asia

Traveling to Thailand in 1991

People ask me sometimes "How did you get in Thailand?" and I answer is always "By airplane". But in reality it was a bit more complex, so I did write some postings about that. Follow this story at Blast from the past. My first encounter with South East Asia was in 1985, 1 month traveling Bangkok, Singapore and Sumatra, Indonesia. In 1991 I did return to South East Asia for a 3 weeks holiday to travel from Bangkok to Singapore by train. On the way we stopped a few times like at Koh Samui, Hat Yai, Phuket, Penang and KL.

Koh Samuit was paradise as life was meant to be at "Fair House Hotel". With in those days only 5 wooden bungalows on the beach. In the following years we made a few summer holiday trips to Phuket and Koh Samui. Most times just for 10 days or 2 weeks. It would take 7 years before we made again a long trip all over South East Asia. In the meantime I was totally hooked to South East Asia. It did feel like "Home sweet home".
