Damn fine stay, decent value at GBP35 for room and brekkie, friendly staff, very nice rooms, although on a small steep hill. Good location for Kata yai and Noi beaches and out of the way of the razzamataz.

The shop owner didn't speak English, hows that! Dale found a book written about a bloke whose son or nephew ( need to check what it was) they know in Cobar. Still on books, I finished The ...
... the larger ones. Her trainer was a lovely man in a cute Vietnamese style hat, who happily told us that he had been Ulva's trainer for a few years. We did a quick 30 minute walk around the forest and stopped for photos at the edge of the cliff (just as nervous doing it this time as I was last time!!). On our way back to the camp, I asked the trainer if there were lots of big spiders in the forest, and ...
