The pier

The pier.

We have been one night in Surat Thani, that was not really our intention, but the family who would go with us to Ko Samui, has been driving from Bangkok to Surat without one stop, they were very tired and wanted to rest.

The shore

The shore.

Phranom, one of Pia's sisters suggested, before we would go to Ko Samui to make a boat trip on a reservoir in the area.
So in the morning at 10 o'clock we went with two cars Ratchaprapa to the Ratchaprapa reservoir, more than an hour away. The last part with steep slopes.

More boats

More boats.

On arrival at the lake, we rented a boat for the whole family, 1800 Thb. But you can also just buy a ticket and step in the first departing boat.
Near the pier of the boats it is a bit messy, it is a coming and going of vans and pick-ups.

Narrow passages

Narrow passages.

The trip on the lake takes about two hours, it is beautiful. The water is beautifully green, and the banks consist of overgrown slopes. In the beginning still quite flat, but as the journey progresses, steeper and more beautiful.
There is not much more to tell, but it was a successful outing.

This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
