Kami selalu sangat ikut Wang Kelian dan Satun(memang lagi dekat). Itu sebab kami ikut Phatthalung pulak. Nak rasa jalan baru yang 70 km lebih jauh ke Trang.
Chalet terlalu banyak di Koh Lanta. Murah2 je.. Range RM 50 - RM 80 je.. The name of the chalet that we stayed is in the next post.. See it for yourself, TQ.
