From big city to empty beaches. Last week, after I bid goodbye to Bangkok, I hopped on a post-TBEX tour to Trang and Satun provinces. These tours are designed to give the bloggers who attend TBEX to explore a bit more of the conference’s host country. Granted, Thailand and I do go pretty far back, but I’d yet to step foot in it’s two Southernmost provinces — so I jumped at the chance.
Our first stop was Trang, where we visited local artisans and island-hopped around to some of the region’s most treasured destinations, like the Emerald Cave on Koh Mook. Next we made our way to Satun, where we paddled through a spectacular sea cave, and explored even more hidden beaches. It was a whirlwind three days! I look forward to returning to some of the islands we stopped on again some day for a much longer stay.
Next week, I’ll be checking in from back on Koh Tao! And in between, we’ll have more posts from the American South to keep us busy. Till next time, here’s Photo of the Week…
