Our initial plan was to cross over into Thailand, take a 4-hour minivan ride to a transfer bus station, then an hour and a half minivan ride to the Thailand-Cambodia border, cross back over and arrive for a cozy night at Koh Kong, Cambodia. The purpose of crossing over was to avoid a 15-hour bus ride down to Koh Kong. A 6-hour trip through Thailand seems much more doable, right?
The combination of a much-delayed start of our minivan ride, several extended stops, and a rude van driver who just waved his hand in our faces whenever we tried to tell him where we needed to go and who took us to Koh Chang, Thailand, instead of Trat, Thailand, meant that we ended up on the southern coast of Thailand our first evening traveling.
Yes, Andrew felt just as confused as I'm sure you feel now.
