Thailand – its wonderful to be back

Thailand – its wonderful to be back

it’s wonderful to be warm again!

Spent today island hoping out to Koh Phi Phi island and around some beautiful bays. Only problem is everybody else seemed to have the same idea, it was busy with about 30 boats all full of visitors to some of the main islands.

I can see that tourism is a great thing for Thailand but wonder how long it can sustain the numbers of visitors to these islands before it they are ruined. You don’t need to look far to see the impact already, with rubbish in the beaches and in the seas. It’s sad. Being here are also part of the problem but have seen it work better in other places in Thailand.

I was disappointed to see the tour boat staff showing little respect for the already damaged reef and fish life by feeding and ‘playing’ with them.

Malua Bay

Malua Bay

We had a great time away this weekend for Easter. We stayed on a farm like property at Malua Bay, South Coast, NSW.

It was great to have the fire going in the evenings and sitting around playing games with friends.
