We left our hotel and caught a vintage vehicle to the bus station. Apparently these little three wheel taxis are a famous sight in Trang. There used to be over 500 of them, but now they are down to only about 100.
Our driver was a real racer and we clung on as he overtook everything else on the road in his rush to get us to the bus station.
We were worried that he might roll the taxi on the corners so we were trying to shift our weight over to compensate.
The driver charged us for three tickets, including one for our big suitcase but as they only cost just over £1 each, then it seemed money well spent.
Once across the border we caught a train to the Malaysian town of Alor Setar and by 3pm we were settled in.
