End of last year family vacation turned into visiting-long-distance-relatives event. We met relatives from my mother’s side at Phuket, Ko Yao Yai, Ko Yao Noi and Nakhon Si Tammarat. All were made possible due to my father effort of finding them during his History Society of Kedah searching for descendants of Mahsuri a few years ago.
Communication was a biggest problem but the Thai blood that run through our veins spoke for us. Meeting relatives from my mother’s side made me thinking more about my mother.
We’ll be back.
Arrived at Ko Yao Yai after 45 minutes boat ride.
10 minutes boat ride from Ko Yao Yai to Ko Yao Noi terrified a non-swimmer like me.
Religious pondok started by my great grandfather in Ko Yao Noi island.
We prefer Kamala Beach compare to Patong Beach. We managed to get a nice chalet run by Muslim for THB1000 which is just 10 meters from the beach. I heard the owner quoted THB2000 when asked by western tourist.
Last night at Nakhon Si Tammarat. We had a nice dinner at Tha Sala beach.
