South Coast Road Trip in a VW Campervan called Mango

Iain Clements & Abi Hesketh-Roberts June 2013

This post is a bit of a departure from my usual Thailand adventures as I took my summer vacation back in the UK this year.

Abi and I recently ticked a long awaited holiday item list by going on a mini road trip along the south coast in a classic VW Camper Van called Mango. We just made a note of some of the places we stayed along the way and some other information about the trip.

Buy a house or a 2nd hand BMW in Thailand

How much is that car?

A colleague of mine in the office recently commented that cars are madly expensive here in Thailand. I hadn't really thought about this before, but then I saw an advert for a used 2009 BMW X3 for a "bargain" 2.2 Million Baht!
