Thailand 2005

My second trip to Thailand. This trip was part of three weeks in South East Asia in November/December 2005. Most of the time in Thailand was spend on Ko Lanta (South) Island, about 90 minutes south of Krabi.

We flew from Vancouver with Singapore Airlines, but had a stop in Korea to take Asiana to Bangkok.

Todd investigates some mango and jackfruit while waiting for the ferry.

One of two car ferries that go to Ko Lanta from Krabi.

I don't think I'd want to use one of these lifejackets!

Ah, my hut for the next week and the hammock on the porch. Not bad for about C$20/night!

Inside was pretty basic with two beds, mosquito netting, fan, and bathroom.

Com'on Todd, smile!

Elke goes for the traditional Thai massage -- about C$8.50/hour!

Relax Bay is located on a private beach, so very quiet and no vendors.

My room guest that would always visit after my shower to splash in the water.

Next to the bar on the beach. Yes, that is a bed on the beach.
