Camping wonder through Thailand 泰國|奇妙的露營之旅

中文原文在下方(還有照片哦)

As a traveler I’m really a beginner, but Thailand impressed me much. Except of the tasty food, cars that we’ve hitchhiked were comfortable and camping spots were cozy. just the weather was burning me. Actually, we camped only 3 days during 15 days of Thailand traveling. The other days we were stucked at couchsurfing homes.
1. It was my very first day in Thailand on 31st of March. Misha has looked up for a beach near Phuket airport previously, where only few tourists came for a walk in the afternoon. Dewdrops spread peacefully in the morning, it was too hot for insects during the day. Only waves splashing in the night, face to the campfire, feels as if there zombies would appear from thicket at any time. I’m too much into “the Walking Dead". Apart from the nonsense imaginations, everything was wonderful and all the worries in the world were fake, desires are superfluous. 10 minutes walking to a town nearby for wifi, internet connection pulled me back to the reality. We stayed here for one night. We came to Thailand only because it was on the way to our destination.

2. We have completed 800 kilometers hitchhiking in a day and we thought we would reach Chiangmai from Bangkok on same day but we stucked in Kamphaeng Phet Province on the way. I had a good dinner in the night bazaar as a reward for hard traveling. After we walked along the river which was full with locals picnicking on it and as we passed through a police checkpoint, we thought kindly to ask a young police officer if there’s a possibility for us to camp somewhere. Of course there wasn’t, but luckily he was a sheriff and he told us to sleep in a police station! We walked to the end of the road and did few bends. the town was so silent and dark and except the streetlights, police station was the brightest building. The sheriff was already waiting for us there, he briefed the police officer on duty, that we will stay there, then they left. Police station was equipped with clean toilets, drinking water, wifi and socket. They even turned on the air conditioner for us. Not long time later, a young man came with an old lady to register, we were already building up our tent in the book area, then she laid on the floor in the waiting area on a blanket, the main light was turned off and we had a comfortable and safe night.

3.
It’s second day of Songkran, I had to avoid water attacking all the way and it seems like people are already back to their hometowns for celebration. Only few vehicles heading to border in Chiang Khong, we were very close to it on an unknown place just 50 kilometers away. We were walking on the road with few houses. there was a football game holding on a middle school playground. Some of the people cheer and waved us with bottles of beer in their hands, so we accepted the opportunity and went for drinks. the coach kindly told us we’re welcome to camp here, but the weather looked like it will be raining soon, so we went to the opposite temple. We used gestures to explain to people we want to put a tent here. A man walked to us and told us to follow… so we followed him to somewhere! Through a small passage and passing few houses, we arrived a hidden place. Brook, hills, flowers, greens, and a house like from a fairy tale, two minutes along the trail there was a small waterfall. Later the man came with his motorbike and brought us a bottle of wine. In the morning he even brought us breakfast with fish, rice, vegetables, fruits and sweets. I’m flattered.
This place was renovated, it will be an attraction for tourists in the future. We were lucky to enjoy it alone one night and only accompanied by chirping of insects and with sound of streaming waters.


我的確是很菜的旅人,但是泰國真的讓我留下很好的旅行印象,不管食物好好吃、搭到的便車很好坐或露營的地點都很舒服,只是天氣太熱,好吧,其實在泰國15天我們只露營了三次,大部分時間我們在沙發衝浪的家被寵壞。

第一次-是我3/31到泰國的第一天,在那之前Misha已經先找好靠近普吉島機場的無人沙灘,下午時可能兩三遊客散步路過,早晨遍地寧靜的露水,白日熱的沒有蟲子,夜晚只有海浪聲,面對著營火還以為隨時有行屍從草叢中出現,陰屍路看太多,除了亂入的恐懼,一切美好的像是世界上任何煩惱都是假的,欲望是多餘的。走個十來分鐘到一個空地使用wifi,是網路世界把我拉回現實中。我們只待了一晚,來泰國只因這裡是必經之路。

第二次-以一日完成八百公里的經驗,我們想著從曼谷到清邁也不是不可能,但最後晚上八點多卡在途中的甘烹碧。在夜市犒賞自己整日的奔波,我們延著滿滿泰國人野餐喝酒的河邊,經過一處警察臨檢,只好禮貌問問一位年輕警察能否讓我們在旁邊的公園搭帳篷,怎樣都不行,剛好他是警長,他批準了我們睡警局!走到路的盡頭過幾個彎,真是寧靜的小鎮,除了路燈,最閃亮就是警局了。警長早已在局內等著我們,交待好值勤的警察,其他人員也散去,警局的廁所乾淨、有水、有Wifi還有插座,值勤人員還特地開了冷氣,不久後有個年輕男生帶了一位老奶奶來登記,我們在書刊區架了帳篷,她鋪了地蓆在等候座位區,關了大燈,我們過了舒服又安全的一夜。


第三次-就在宋干節的第二天,一路躲過潑水攻擊,似乎大家已經回家鄉慶祝,太少前往清孔邊界的車輛了,就在非常接近的前50公里不知名的地方,我們在兩側房子稀少的大路走,有間中學操場正在舉行足球比賽,一些人舉著啤酒瓶,歡呼跟我們說哈囉,我們也就順道過去喝一杯,一個教練說歡迎我們在這搭帳篷,但我看天色要下雨了,我們走到對面的寺廟,對一群在屋內的人比手劃腳問問是否能讓我們在這搭帳篷,一位先生向我們走過來…然後我們就跟著他走了!穿越羊腸小徑,路過幾棟房子,就到了桃花園!小河、山坡與花叢,跟一棟像似童話故事裡的房子,沿著步道走兩分鍾就是個小瀑布,後來這位先生特地騎機車帶著一瓶米酒來,隔天一早更是準備一袋有魚有飯有甜食的早餐,我覺得受寵若驚。原來這一區域正在整修,未來要招覽遊客來的,很幸運我們先獨自享受只有蟲鳴流水聲的無人夜晚。
