Koh Samui expats take "Visa runs" to Myanmar to extend visas. Simon and I decided to bicycle from Koh Samui to Ranong, a small town in southern Thailand which borders the southernmost tip of Myanmar, and then boat to Myanmar for the stamp.

First we ride to the Koh Samui Raja Ferry, the ferry lands near Surat Thani at the Donsak pier, bicycle to a motel on the northern side of Surat Thani, next day bicycle up highway "AH2" to a motel in Lang Suan just south of Chumphon on the Gulf of Thailand, and on the final day bicycle west on highway 4139 and dirt road 1007 through the coast mountains to highway 4 and south to Ranong on the Andaman Sea at the mouth of the Pak Chan (Kraburi) River.
