Bangsaphan town to coast kayak trip

I don’t think anyone has attempted this before so four intrepid adventurers set off from a bridge over the road opposite Bangsaphan hospital and kayaked the river through town and out to the ocean, ending the 15 or so kilometer journey at Coco Bar.

Along the way we witnessed a lot of flood damage, personal belongings in the trees, an overhead freight train, many wild birds, bemused locals, shrieking school children, fishing communities, low bridges, mellow meandering mangrove inlets, pounding surf, and of course uncle Montri with a cold beer at the end.
