Our last breakfast here. We feel sad that we have to leave. We have really loved staying here. It's a lovely property in a good location with a great pool and wonderful staff. There is so much to do in this area! For our visit we concentrated on the WW II stuff.

Have just enough time for a short dip in the pool and my husband is ready to head back to BANGKOK. We reluctantly check out only having to pay for the 2 smoothie slushie drinks we had by the pool-143 baht.

Our same tuk tuk guy arrives to take us to the bus station. Wish I had written his name down somewhere! He was very nice, had passable English. As we drive I'm passing some familiar landmarks and then we come to a much busier and larger part of the town that I didn't even realize existed!! At the bus station I have time to take a picture of our tuk tuk driver and thank him for chauffeuring us around-100 baht. What great timing. There's a bus getting ready to leave for BANGKOK right now! I quickly pay for our 2 tickets, 1st class at 120 baht each even though the ticket says 110 baht?? No time for pictures as we hop on the bus, seats 30 and 31. The bus departs at 11:40 am. The A/C feels so good. After a short time a bus hostess gives out bottles of water. We enjoy relaxing in the comfortable seats and admire the scenery.

BOSSOTEL Our fourth and final stay here. Check in is a breeze as well it should! The staff knows us and we know them. Our last welcome drink. Sigh. I put the balance on my credit card. 1800 baht which is for 1 night. I had pre paid the other night already. I can't believe this is our last 2 nights of our 3 month trip through SE Asia! We have room #415. The room is furnished/equipped pretty much the same as the other 3 rooms we have had. It is now pushing 3:00 pm so too late for sightseeing so we will relax by the pool. I make reservations for us for the show tomorrow Siam Niramit. I think it was skeezik's trip report and raves about this show that made me decide it was a "must see". I also make reservations for dinner tonight. The pool is nice but it's a bit overcast which is real unusual.
