Lomprayah Pier is where you go to travel between the islands by High Speed Catamaran Boat. We did not chose this method of travel to the island. We took a slow boat. Catherine and I walked to the end of the pier and I imagined how many people leave this pier and arrive everyday.
This is a Catamarand arriving/departing. All the passengers waiting to board have to wait in a neat line with all their luggage. This is why it is smart to travel with a backpack. You tend not to see too many people with suitcases in SE Asia.
Attack of the Pad Thai!!!

This soup is made with coconut milk, galangal, lemon grass and chicken. The fried chillies add a smokey flavor, color, and heat that overwhelms the soup. The key is to get a taste balance between the spices. On a hot day this doesn’t help much to cool you off, but it’s still very tasty.
This pancake was as good as advertised. I couldn’t say I have ever had a better one. We chose a Banana and Peanut pancake.
Catherine tricked me into taking the photos so she could sneak more bites than me!!! Clever girl!!
After our pancakes we headed to the beach for some fun in the sun. The great thing about being on an island is that you never have to walk far to find the beach.
Koh Tao was named by its first settlers for the island’s turtle-like geographic shape. Coincidentally, the island is an important breeding ground for the Hawksbill turtles and Green turtles.
The stray mutts roamed around the beach and would come to say “Hi” every once and a while. They were all very friendly. They say that a dog’s life is great. Imagine a dog’s life on an exotic island in Thailand….
Unlike the stray mutts we usually see, these ones were healthy looking so perhaps the restaurants along the shore feed and take care of them.
The clouds started moving in and we decided it was a great time to go grab a bite to eat.
Even with a cloudy sky, sunsets here are beautiful.
The taxi-boats all come ashore when the sun goes down.
Catherine just held down the camera and took a random shot. Well Done BABY!!
Not a very safe looking bridge.
Most of these are dive schools and restuarants.
We walked out to the end of this pier and saw a chair and a string of fish. Some guy must had been sitting there all day. He had a good haul!
The bridge was quite rickety. I was just happy to get off the bridge.
We made our way back to the road from the beach. As we looked back at the beach and were captivated by this painting. Catherine wants to paint us one similar to this! 🙂 We were due to meet up with Douglas and Brittany for dinner just as the sun was going down.
Another great day on the beach.
