Dit paradijselijke Thaise eiland ligt op amper een uurtje varen van Langkawi, en konden we dus niet overslaan. Samenvatting van onze week: snorkelen in het helderblauwe water, chillen aan parelwitte stranden en goedkope cocktails drinken!
After another day yesterday exploring Langkawi by moped. While we were in the sea we saw a big pod of dolphins swim along the bay. By evening, really heavy rains arrived as we are getting the tail end of a storm. Even the frog wanted to find refuge from it! The continuing storm today made for an adventurous boat journey on rough seas. The boat was meant to dock on the south of the island next to a floating pontoon about 200m off the coast and then we were meant to get a long boat to the shore (the island is too small for a pier) but after waiting for ages they decided it was far too rough. The boat made it round to the north and a quick transfer, without a pontoon, to a longboat in heavy rain and swell was not quite what we had in mind when arriving at a Thai island. Where is the sun? Immigration was the best yet, however, a kiosk on the beach! It's so good to be back in Thailand as their food is amazing, fresh fruits, red curry... With the weather set to continue for for a couple of days we will have to spend our time working through the menus! They have a unique style of taxi's on the island too - motorbike and pillion with a difference.Read more
