20.01.2009 - 31.01.2009
So it's been some time since we've updated, mostly because we've been on islands where the internet charges are super high-like $.10 per min. After Ko Tao we excited to go to Kho Pangang after hearing so much about the full moon parties they have. Of course it turns out that Kho Pangang is pretty touristy with lots of cafe's with big screen TV's broadcasting "Friends" episodes. So we went to a beach about 20 min away called Hat Thian, which was super chill with a very hippy/yoga/veggie food vibe. It was super small and everyone seemed to know each other. Our five day stay ended with an all night DJ party up on a bar on a cliff. After Hat Thian we headed to a National Park called Kao Sok. We slept in tree house in the middle of the jungle with monkeys that tried to break into our hut in the middle of the night-no shit! We also went on a sweet water fall hike into the jungle and Erik got attacked by a blood sucking leech, but he lived. After Kao Sok we went west to the Adaman Coast to an island called Railay which is famous for its rock climbing. It has these huge limestone cliffs shooting up out of the water everwhere. We went rock climbing with a local guide who took us to some sweet routes that went up to about 90 feet or 30 meters. At the top we were basically looking down over the water and the whole island-so fun! It was a bit pricey out there so we are know back on the mainland in Krabi Town enjoying cheap everything once again. We are gonna go shopping and get massages tonight. Tomorrow we are headed to the southern most part of Thailnad for what might be our last leg in Thailand. We will go to an island called Ko Lipe that is supossed to be super chill and cheaper. We hope we can settle for a nice long week before crossing the border to Malaysia.
