Peace and quiet

Since the only dives that sounded interesting were being offered one at a time in the mornings, we would have had to extend our stay to do more. Instead, we decided to head back to the mainland where we managed to find our way down the coast to Cherating.

The town was wonderfully deserted. We found a cozy place to stay next to a cafe offering good food (run by an American and Malay couple), and settled in for a few days of pampering (we were both recovering from sore throats we had picked up on the island).

Going for a morning walk, we found ourselves sharing a couple of kilometres of beach with only one other person. It was like we owned the place, and we could have stayed much longer but we wanted to visit Taman Negara before our time in Malaysia ran out.
