KOH MAK……………ANOTHER HIDDEN TREASURE

Tomorrow I will leave this beautiful island of Koh Mak and take a speedboat ferry to Koh Chang for 600 Baht (£11.50)  ………..  I have hired a scooter everyday since I arrived here and have ridden all round the island a couple of times; so here are a few snaps from Koh Mak….

I was the only person there, until after a few minutes of wandering around, a young monk appeared and said hello; he then bade me to follow him, and he led me down to where this  beautiful gold statue looks out over the sea (below)  ……..  not knowing it was there I may well have missed it were it not for his kind gesture………….
