So sorry to everyone who has to earn a living, but this is what we came for!
Koh Adang is in the Tarutao National Park. The only island in the Park that has been permitted to develop as a tourist destination is Koh Lipe, and that is the place that the ferries stop. When you arrive there the ferries dock onto a floating pontoon and long tailed boats come out to take you into the shore. Then to get to Koh Adang, you have to traverse Koh Lipe. As it was only a 15 minute walk to Sunset Beach, we marched across with our backpacks in spite of the mid-day heat. Our resort sent another long tail boat to pick us up from the beach and transport us across the channel to Koh Adang.
Tomorrow, 26th February we will be sad to leave Koh Adang and head off on another ferry across the Malaysian border to Langkawi and then straight on to Penang, arriving in the evening – it’s going to be another long travel day!
