IMO, the best bits of Thailand
Glad you guys headed out west of the strip :) Koh Lanta and other islands of the Krabi province deserve more visits from the traveler than it does now. Beautiful place; more relaxed, less commercialized than say, Hatyai and the rest of Songkhla province. Koh Phangnga is in the Phangnga province, along with its more famous big brother - Phuket. ("Koh" = island.)
And, oh: photos do not do justice to Re "Underboning" ... She's a real stunner in person, trust me on this :) Colin "Underboning" is a very lucky man!
