Don Det - 4000 Islands
Around 12pm yet another minivan arrived, and we again get squashed in the back with more locals, boxes and huge bags of rice at our feet, meaning there was nowhere to put our legs down. This part of the journey was just over an hour long, and after the usual dropping off locals and goods, we arrive at the border just after 1pm.
We got chatting to the 3, one guy was from America and the couple were British/American. Thanking them for the lift, we chatted for the short distance, but strangely the driver stops at the junction he needed to take the last 3km to the ferry. He then asks us all to get out, to which all of us were now very surprised at, as the 3 already in that minivan had paid to get to the island too. The driver said he was just a taxi and tried telling them they needed to pay for a Tuk Tuk to take them the last few km, but rightly so they were unhappy with this as it was not what they had booked.
We got our washing back that we had given the crazy lady yesterday, eventually as it wasn’t there when we asked and some girl had to go running off for it, so we quickly dumped that in the room to sort out later on.
