Day 13 – Ao Nang Beach and thoughts of monkeys… #thailand | Phil Lengthorn

The place we’re staying out here in Ao Nang is right on the beach. It was a bit cloudy today. Although, it didn’t stop today being a beach day, with a bit of pool action thrown in. Enough said.

We also keep coming across signs like this. ‘Do not feed the monkey’. THE monkey.

It would appear that there is just one monkey around. Signs for one monkey? That makes it somewhat scarier.

So after tonight’s drinks at O’Malley’s Irish Bar…

One of the cheapest bars we have come across, the walk back to the room, the mind can wander…

Day 12 – Island hopping #thailand | Phil Lengthorn

Firstly, a little update on yesterday. A/C issues – it stopped working. Had to move rooms late last night. All good now.

Today was one of those full on days, beginning with early breakfast for an early start, scooting around some of the local islands…

Railay Beach and Pranang Cave Bay.

Beautiful. As is pretty standard here, you come across lots of shrines. This one was all about a Princess who will fulfil wishes – there was a plaque that told you so. When the wishes are fulfilled you should leave an offering. If you leave a special offering you will ensure fertility and prosperity to…

Day 11 – Ao Nang #thailand | Phil Lengthorn

We had such a relaxing day yesterday that we didn’t actually get round to booking anything for today. So it was spent chilling at the pool and wandering around town. It was another very hot day, although it was a bit breezy. At one stage the wind got hold of a couple parasols and sent them flying around the pool. Unfortunately one of them hit an old boy who promptly went off to put in a claim no doubt. It could have been worse though, a water polo net that was out of the pool on the side nearly took his wife’s head off when it got blown over. All very exciting!

The highlight of the day…
