Koh Payam 28 October, 2007 Boat
Ranong 27 October, 2007 Boat Returning from Kawthoung for a visa run. You'll have to bargain on boat price, I can't recall. Remember to buy $US from the bank, the Burmese visa is cheaper in $US.
Kawthaung 27 October, 2007 Boat Visa run from Ranong. You'll need to bargain on price, I can't remember. Bring $US for your Burmese visa, it's cheaper. People will change money near the port, but the rates are bad, so do it at a bank if possible.

Bangkok 20 October, 2007 Public Bus, Minivan, Truck etc. Actually this is a boat + bus combination from Koh Pha Ngan. You can find many places offering very reasonably priced deals to Bangkok, covering many price ranges. This is about the cheapest.
Koh Pha Ngan 14 October, 2007 Boat There are a range of prices to get between Koh Tao and Koh Pha Ngan; the trip is short though. Ignore the taxis at the dock and keep walking - you'll find the songteau easily, and they're only 50baht to Hat Rin (not sure elsewhere).
Koh Tao 08 October, 2007 Boat Midnight boat from Chumpon, tickets from Infinity travel or Farang bar in town. This includes a transfer to the port around 11pm. Boat quality varies, it's not always the same.

Bangkok 05 October, 2007 Train Many trains each day.
Ubon Ratchatani 04 October, 2007 Public Bus, Minivan, Truck etc. Over the border from Laos. Taxi drivers lurk, but if you walk straight along the main drag about 1km along is a bus station - it's pretty obvious, you won't miss it. If you can't get a bus all the way to where you want, the songteau do go a shortish way (1 hour) to another town, from where there are more departures for buses etc. to Ubon Ratchatani, Bangkok and so forth.

Luang Prabang 10 September, 2007 Public Bus, Minivan, Truck etc. It's a `long`, long way from Kunming to Luang Prabang. Bring food, there aren't all that many stops. You'll have a while on either side of the border to pick up food though.
Kunming 05 September, 2007 Public Bus, Minivan, Truck etc. I can't recall the exact cost, but it was unreasonably expensive by local standards. The price was right there on the ticket though... The bus station had moved from where it used to be, as well.
