I have just returned from a three day trip to Trang and Satun in the South of Thailand. I was invited by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) to join them to do “Product Testing for Quality Tourists”. It sounded like fun so I jumped at the chance to go. We flew down to Trang early Friday morning and then basically spent three days on boats and islands in both Trang and Satun Provinces. While I was there I did my best to post live pictures and comments on Twitter and also on my moblog. For those who don’t know, Twitter is micro-blogging where you can only post 140 characters at a time. On the other hand, moblogging can be a bit longer, but as it is posted from my mobile phone, in my case an iPhone, I am limited to how many words I can tap out on the touchscreen.
All the pictures in the moblog were taken on the iPhone and uploaded to the Internet as and when I could get Internet access. The following are my moblogs posted from Trang and Satun:
- Bo Hin Farm Stay in Trang
- Anantara Sikao Resort & Spa in Trang
- Koh Mook Sivalai Beach Resort
- Sevenseas Resort on Koh Kraden
- Tarutao National Marine Park
- Bundhaya Resort on Koh Lipe
- Sita Beach Resort & Spa on Koh Lipe
- Tarutao Island in Satun
- Koh Khai in Tarutao Marine Park
- Peninsular Botanical Garden in Trang
- Flying Back to Bangkok
I will be posting longer reports here on www.thai-blogs.com later this week using pictures from my DSLR. You can visit my Twitter Archives for a summary of what I have been doing every day. The first picture above is a foreign couple watching the sunset on Koh Lipe. The bottom picture is snorkelling in the Tarutao National Marine Park.
