|Arrived late last night in Khao Lak, hired a motor bike today and toured all around. The Tsunami has really hit hard here, only 5 resorts up and running out of a probable 150-200. Total devastation, 2 and three storey resort buildings completely wiped out, only a few coconut trees remain along the ocean front. A police boat was 2klm out to sea when the Tsunami hit and is now a tourist attraction 2klms inland - it is a HUGE boat......unbelievable unless you see it. They are struggling here so it was good to stay a while and support the locals.
25th. Spent the day at one of the new resorts on the beach, swimming in the wet edge pool and lazing in the sun - good to relax after a hard day on the bike yesterday.
Heading north again tomorrow to Ranong and the island of Ko Chang.
