Hat Rai Leh - I really should be getting tired of beaches right now!
Not much to say apart from... wow.
We arrived here on a ferry, and then to a very unsafe longboat (which was packed with 30+ people) to the beach. I thought the boat would capsize so I held onto a life jacket just incase.
Rai Leh has many beaches, but as we were only spending a couple of nights there I only had the chance to visit on the west coast. I am running out of superlatives to describe these places, so when I upload the photos take a look at them.
We also took a trip to the Diamond Caves - no diamonds in there, but the rocks glisten on the light. There was also a huge amount of bats hanging from the ceiling.
A few days later we (when i say 'we' - I mean Gav from Scotland and Tia from Canada and myself) went south on a 4 hour bus journey to Hat Yai which is near the Malaysian border.
Not much to do here, but they do have several fast food takeaways, a huge Tesco's and a cinema. It was Tia's 21st birthday and Gav had already left for Malaysia, so we spent her birthday together eating loads of fast food and getting fake tattoos. I had the Chinese symbol for 'Tiger' hennaed on my arm... because of my eternal love of 'Tony' the Kellogg’s Frosties tiger.
The day after Tia left I bought a bus ticket to Kuala Lumpur the capital of Malaysia, where I am right now writing this.
KL/Malaysia has some great things going for it, but a lot of things are just p***ing me off. I will write about it in my next entry.
