Alas, how time flies. It is time to pack our bags and make our return trip back into Malaysia.
Time for one final group photo for memories sake, and we set off on our 400km journey from Krabi back to the Thai Malaysia border.
Thank God for good weather and a smooth drive, except for having to emergency break and swerve to avoid hitting a dog who decided to have a sudden dash across the highway.
The border crossing was also straightforward. Just drive your vehicle directly to the immigration booths:
Slip in a one ringgit “tip” into every passport. After getting your passports stamped, proceed to the next booth to sign and return your vehicle import form.
After clearing the Thai side, drive up to the Malaysia immigration where each adult might be required to place two index fingers on the biometric scanner for identification. There is also the payment of RM3.60 via the Touch N Go card. Thankfully, no RM20 entry fee required here.
After successfully clearing the customs, we said goodbye to my brother-in-law’s family- They will be headed back to Singapore while we will extend our stay for a few more nights at Cameron Highlands and Melaka.
