Phang Nga

From Khao Sok I headed with Dagmar to Phang Nga, a small, rather touristy town in southern Thailand.

One thing there was no shortage of was Japanese tourists taking pictures of each other: pictures/phangnga11-1.jpg pictures/phangnga14-1.jpg

After leaving Phang Nga I stayed one night on my way to Malaysia in a small town called Satun near the southern border of Thailand. pictures/satun1-1.jpg pictures/satun2-1.jpg
