Thailand Travel Guide A Short Cruise from Jomtien Pattaya

A Short Cruise from Jomtien Pattaya Thailand Travel GuideA sight-seeing cruise to islands off Sattahip, especially Ao Noi, offers privacy, excellent view and a chance to admire large corals After passing through a small cape, which departed Kled Kaew Island, the island of monkeys, from the inland where stands the dignified buildings of Chumphon Navy Rating School and Navy Recruit Training Centre, the captain slowed the yacht down until we saw our destination ahead. Surprisingly, quite larger than its given name, Ao Noi (meaning a small bay in Thai) covers a total area of 116 rai or 46.5 acres, located in the boundary of Sattahip Royal Navy Base and managed by Chumphon Navy School. This lovely bay was previously reserved for training Thai marines until it was officially opened as a new tourist attraction on January 22 this year in a ceremony presided over by A.D.M. Taweesak Somapha, ex-Commander-In-Chief, the Royal Thai Navy.

Remote and Rustic Mukdahan Thailand Travel Guide

Remote and Rustic Mukdahan Thailand Travel GuideThe river was wide at this point but the current still strong. We were able to steer our dinghy with a minimum of effort. We stayed close to the bank using the cover of trees and thick green foliage to blank out the heat from the sun that beat down relentlessly on us this day. We sailed past temples, fish farms and makeshift vegetable plantations enjoying the scenery. On the opposite side of the river, colonial style buildings against a backdrop of dense forest told us it was Savanakhet, now part of Laos. In 1893, after the Mekong became the demarcation line between Laos and Thailand, Mukdahan and Savanakhet were split into two separate provinces. Now more than a century later while politics and the river continue to divide the land, the lifestyle and faith of its peoples, who still see each other as one, hasn't changed. The peoples of Savanakhet and Mukdahan share similar faith: they believe in the Naga and Phra That Phanom, a big stupa housing Lord Buddha's relic that dates back to 535 BC.

Sport Fishing off Phuket Thailand Travel Guide

Thailand Travel Guide Sport Fishing off PhuketSouthern Thailand has long been considered a world-class diving destination. But now there is a new adventure in the region, sport fishing. Wahoo, dorado, sailfish and marlin have international anglers scrambling to book berths aboard Phuket's fishing charter boats. Whether you want a day trip to one of the nearby islands or a longer Seafari to the Similans, southern Thailand is a sure bet for game fishing. Day trips to Racha Yai and Racha Noi, which can be reached in just over an hour, or live aboard voyages to the Similan Islands. Both destinations offer a good catch of sailfish, tuna, wahoo and dorado. And young black marlin has also been caught at both sites. But, the Similan Islands provides a greater variety of fish.
