" My 3 days visit to Betong (8-10/4/2011) with my buddies from Petaling Jaya - a relaxing trip to a Southern Thailand town, popularly known as a town in a mist with beautiful flowers near the Malaysian-Thai border "
Hotels(2 nights): Garden View (RM109 for a 3-bed room)+Winter Garden Resort (RM69 for a chalet of 3)
Our group put up a night each at the Garden View Hotel (Rm109 for a triple bed room) and Winter Flower Garden (Rm65 for a chalet for 3) in Betong; both hotels were pleasant to stay ! We also treated ourselves to 2 sessions of Thai body and foot massages (Rm25 per hr) to give a boost to our tiring and ailing bodies !!!
No hassle for us when our vehicle passed through both the Malaysia and Thai Immigration check points. But get ready to pay Rm 2 on Thai side for filling up a simple entry form and another Rm2 for stamping your passport at the counter; Rm3 for vehicle insurance.
