A day @ Nakhon Nayok and Prachinburi

As part of my ongoing quest to visit every Thai province and every Lak Mueang in Thailand I visited the two remaining 'day trip' provinces to the east of Bangkok. Originally, the plan was Mo Chit bus terminal outwards, but a friendly taxi driver offered to take me there and back for 1500 baht ~ $50. A taxi maximizes my chance of doing two provinces in one day, plus it makes a driver very happy.

First Nakon. The closest, and on the way to Prac. 1 hour plus to Nakhon. pop. 20k? Burbs and rice farms most of the way. Nakon is a small quiet town of rice farmers and light industry. Very few farang. Spent three hours or so here, snaps and general looking around.

Prachinburi was a 20 min drive to the south east of Nakon. pop 20k? Rice farms and light industry all the way. The road was fairly busy, the route to Cambo, and the Songkran time of the year.
