On the shoulder of a giant.

After the royal palace, we took a boat tour of the rivers near the palace. A few houses were nice looking, but mostly not. Lots of kids were having fun in their backyard waterway, and many waved to us.

In one section of the river, we stopped to feed a very large group of 鯉魚. We fed the fishes with old bread and they just jump out of water on top of each other in the feeding frenze.

In this particular, it's a custom for people to put coins in each of the little buckets.

I forgot where was this picture taken. (Forgetting is what happened when you do not write the travel journals right away...)

Perhaps in the temple with a massage training school? I had a little foot massage there. It was not quite comparable to a real spa, but it was very cheap.

We spent the next few days of our holiday in Krabi. The town is very near Phuket and in fact many of the outer island destinations are the same as those day tours from Phuket, but cheaper.

We stayed in the Sheraton Krabi Beach Resort. Comparing to the luxury of the Peninsula in Bangkok, the rooms at Sheraton was very utilitarian. Not that they were bad, just simple and practical. The hotel was built on a swamp, and preserved many mangroves and little animals. Walking around on the raised walking path in the hotel, we could see many skipper fishes, small crabs with one giant arm, big monitor lizards.

The beach was very nice, and exceeded my expectation. The sand was truely fine soft powder sand. In the morning, we saw many sea urchin on the beach got washed up. I took these pictures with my phone. On the second pic, the sea urchin was watching me???

Another picture taken with my phone camera.

During the few days we stayed in Sheraton Krabi, there was an Indian marketing company hold a conference in the hotel. Each night they would setup tents on the beach or next to the pool to have their dinner party.

One of the day tour we took was kayak in the river.

I had seriously under-estimatd the effort required to paddle the boat with my own weight on.  Angry
