We wandered around the village, where we saw boys playing mini soccer, old muslim women preparing dinner and the odd chicken running around. We visited the school and played a game with the boys which was a combination of volleyball and soccer. Did some shopping for peals before chillling out at the huts. Dinner was at the guesthouse, and we indulged in typical thai muslim food. We all had an early night as we lay in our huts and listened to the sea lapping the shore underneath our heads.
This morning, we were told that beach camping was out because the sea was too rough to get across. We boarded out fishing boats again to get back to Krabi before grabbing some clothes for the night and leaving our bags in lock up. We boarded a new fishing boat and headed out into Phang Nga Bay. Again the scenery is spectacular with lots of limestone Karsts jutting out of the sea. We visited the famous James Bond Island and we also saw dolphins. We had a dip in the sea at the Island before covering our shoulders and heading to Koh Panyee, a muslim fishing village. When we arrived, we walked through floating walkways to our little guest houses. We are staying in tiny huts made of bamboo and rattan, with mattresses on the floor and a big mosquito net. Our view was the sea and lots of fishing boats and nets.
