We went for lunch and found a lovely looking river-side restaurant. The only person there was one lady who took our order then cooked our food for us. It took about an hour to get the food but it was great when it finally made an appearance. At one point, I’d walked past the kitchen and saw her scraping out a coconut for Drew’s curry. We’re getting proper fresh food here!
We hired bikes and went exploring. The road was quite rocky in places but generally ok and we had a lovely cycle round Don Det and onto Don Khon where we saw an old abandoned train. We kept going until we found the “big waterfall” (as the tours describe it). It’s not big, it’s huge! It’s not particularly high but the sheer quantity of water is breathtaking.
We returned our bikes and went to Little Eden for some sunset beers. Ahhhh… Heaven.
