We spent the past few days on Koh Phi Phi, and while it is a beutiful island, its beauty, however, has been heavily tarnished by uncontrolled development and countless tours of the surrounding islands and reefs.
Ao Pang Na National Park is an amazing place, where countless limestone outcrops jut straight out from the ocean hundreds of meters into the air.
The scenery is amazing, but I feel as though to truly appreciate it you need to put yourself in the shoes of a pirate… only then will you be able to appreciate all the nooks created by the limestone; these nooks are a perfect place to hide a ship full of loot, after raiding and pillaging a few villages, until the heat dies down.
The other day we went to Wat Tham Suwankhuha which is near Pang Na city. This Wat is actually in a cave, and has several Buddhas inside, including a large reclining Buddha.
The Tsunami last year caused significant damage to the islands, but the Thais have a fool proof plan in case of future Tsunamis
These singes are all over the place, pointing in the direction AWAY from the ocean.
