|Pak Bara...on the southern Andaman Sea. This is a jumping off point for the islands down here, but Pak Bara itself is pretty and I like the bungalow I've rented (Bara Resort), so I'm staying for an extra day - need to anyway in order to visit travel agents and book accommodation on the islands, plus boat trips. I think tomorrow will be Ko Bulon Leh for 2 days, then I have Ko Lipe pre-booked from the 14th to 18th - Mountain resort. After that, up to Trang - Ko Muk perhaps. Beautiful weather, hot but not too humid, clear skies. dry. Getting into the holiday frame of mind, starting to relax and unwind - it takes a while......
