Bangkok to Surin by bus – latest instalment

March 18, 2013

They say the wheels on the bus go round and round and they certainly did on the latest part of Megan and Sophies trip

The driving distance to this northeastern border province is 457 kms, which takes about 5 hours.  2 routes are available – which one they took I do not know!

1) Take the route Bangkok-Saraburi to Nakhon Ratchasima.  Then take Highway 224 Nakhon Ratchasima – Chok Chai, and turn left to Highway 24 (Chok Chai – Det Udom).  Turn left at Amphoe Prasat intersection into Highway 214, to reach Amphoe Muang Surin

2) Take the route Bangkok – Saraburi – Nakhon Ratchasima.  Drive along Highway 226 past Buri Ram to reach Amphoe Muang Surin.

Possibly on a bus like this – no doubt photo’s will follow!

And an almost live update – Megan has now met up with Roger Moore – Exeter Business Network member who has been absolutely fantastic in helping arrange the Thailand part of Megan’s trip.  Megan and Sophie are just getting ready to go out for dinner – later in the week Sophie will be experiencing Surin Hospital and Megan was due to be working in the local school but – the latest from Roger

“It is so funny, the long holidays for the schoolchildren have started. However Za’s mother has arranged for children at the school to come in for special English lessons this week!! I would not be surprised if there are some staff as well. Can you imagine in the UK? I think not!!”
