Sabine, Sanders, and their daughter Malin had already been here for a week so they knew the ins and outs of the island. We found food was cheaper and also better than on Koh Lanta. Point for Mook! But no flush toilet, no hot water, and no AC. Point for Lanta.
We rented a longtail boat the next day and took a tour around the whole island, which is not that big. We stopped at various beaches, snorkeling spots (which weren't very good), had lunch, and visited the famous Emerald Cave. I think it's only famous if you come here, but it's quite impressive, especially if you don't really know what to expect. You swim in through a cave, and around one bend it's completely dark so you need to remember to bring a torch. Then you swim out the other end and are surrounded by high limestone cliffs on all sides. Pirates used to hide treasure in there, but we did not find any. It was touristy, but still beautiful. And you can never go wrong with a day out on a boat (unless you are prone to seasickness, then I don't recommend it.)
|The closest we got to a group shot. Sander and Malin reflects in my shades. An you find Martin?|
