Home - Journeys - Holiday Thailand 2017 - Saturday, November 4, 2017

We have slept well in the Bann Pantai Resort in Cha-am. Tom feels better then yesterday, the immodium has helped.
But at breakfast we drink tea instead of coffee. And rice soup, and that tastes pretty good.

Before we return the bikes we make a round trip on the boulevard. And then we sit quietly on our veranda in the hotel.

After Pia has swum a little, we go to the Cha-Am Forest Park.
This appears closer than expected, so we drive to far and have to go back. It is a park in which, according to the description, many birds would be, and gibbons and other animals.
And asphalted hiking trails have been set out.

When we get out of the car we do hear a gibbon, but that's all. And it seems that we are the only visitors, there are no other cars in the parking lot.
We follow the directions in the park and do find a hiking trail. We follow the trail and we arrive at an area where gibbons would be.
We see many beautiful butterflies, and Pia sees all kinds of edible plants, but no gibbons.
And we do see a few beautiful birds, including a kingfisher.
The entire hiking trail is maybe three kilometers long. Still nice to have walked a while.

Back at the hotel we decide to eat at Kong Samut Seafood Restaurant where we have eaten on a previous visit to Cha-am. We walk along the boulevard to get there, about 20 minutes walking, and we eat oysters, grilled shrimps and fried sea bass.
When we leave, someone from the restaurant asks where we have to go, they want to bring us there with the car. Nice offer, but we're just going to walk.

The rest of the day we sit quietly on the veranda of our room.

We tell what we have done and experienced during a trip and we also tell what we think about it; no more and no less.

This is not a travel guide, nor is it advice to visit a place or not. There are other sites for that.
Our opinion about places where we have eaten, drunk or slept is not intended as a (positive or negative) assessment, there are other sites for that.
It is our view of the situation at a certain moment and that view is influenced by our mood, the weather and many other factors.
