I am married to my loving husband for more than 38 years now. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children, until 11 years ago when I lost my youngest son. Since then my life is forever altered but yet unbroken....

My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Solo Cambodia Ride Day 06: Koh Chang

Day 06: 11 February 2015
Route: Koh Chang

(Nan tandoori for brunch at India Hut Restaurant)

White Sand Beach is the first beach after about 15 minutes ride from the ferry piers. It is a very long beach with powdery white sand and by far, the most developed beach on the island.

(Elephant ride is available for visitors)

Klong Plu is the principal waterfall on the island. We have to pay an entrance fee to enter the area. There is a one kilometre path that follows the river to the huge plunge pool and the falls. The pool has small cliffs and rocks on its edges from where one can dive. The park has recently added a nature walk through the canopy with clear signages along the main path and this is well worth taking as a diversion on the way back.

Bang Bao Koh Chang is the original fishing village which now serves as the departure point for diving and island hopping. There is a 700-metre-long concrete pier that stretches into the bay. Until about halfway out, it's lined with private houses, shops selling touristy trinkets and beach towels, seafood restaurants and guesthouses, all on stilts. Beyond that, the pier is used for boat parking, and it gets noisy when double-decker scuba and snorkel boats disembark in the mornings and return in the late afternoons.
