Banana Road Trip to Phuket Final Day

We woke  up on the final day bright an early because we have a long drive ahead of us. When I mean long drive I mean 14 hours drive from Phuket to Kuala Lumpur. I woke up and decide to have a look outside and again Phuket gave me a fantastic view.

Our gracious host Johann prepared breakfast for us and Allan specially requested for bacon this morning. We got bacon and feasted again on a fantastic breakfast.

Now that is what I call a fantastic breakfast. Simple and absolutely delicious, it was accompanied with some yogurt and also cereal and great coffee. We packed out stuff up and got ready to go. Before we did, I took one last shot of the view out of our window.

The first stop on our 14 hour trip back was a petrol station to top up on gas. This is the first time we fueled up in Thailand and man it is expensive. It is close to 3 bucks per liter and they had a whole load of choices. 

They have:
  • Vpower Diesel
  • FuelSave Diesel
  • FuelSave Gasohol 91
  • Vpower Gasohol 95
  • FuelSave Gasohol 95
I never knew there was such thing as Vpower Diesel and by the way Gasohol is fuel with a combination of Ethanol. We didn't really know which one to go for but we went for the safe option and not so expensive options which is the FuelSave Gasohol 95.

With the car fueled up, Allan suggest we should also fuel ourselves up with some Red Bull. So we got 3 bottles of Red Bull.

We also did a spot of cam whoring before we left...

We drove towards the border passing Krabi, Trang (we didn't get lost this time) and Phattalung. Just after Phattalung, we stopped for lunch. On the way up to Phuket, we saw this nice looking restaurant and we decided to check it out on the way back.

We had some Thai food again but this time we had:

  1. Pad Thai
  2. Thai Fried Rice
  3. Omelet
  4. Som Tam
  5. Deep Fried Catfish
It wasn't the best Thai food we had so far but the view was fantastic. Once we polish off lunch we had nothing much to do but too..

Finally we again set off for the border stopping one more time for some Thai Junk food just before reaching Sadao. After 9 hours on the road in Phuket we reached the border...

We said good bye to Thailand drove back into Malaysia. Another 5 hours on the road from Bukit Kayu Hitam and we finally ended up where it started which was Chong's place. Jack was gracious enough to pick Allan and I up and send us back to our respective homes.

It was one super great road trip and one of the best so far. Nothing can beat this 1800km trip from Kuala Lumpur to Phuket. The stories of our road trip will be told for many years to come. Thanks guys.
