Waterfowl and lilies galore

Unexpected pretty place to watch waterfowl and water buffaloes. Go early morning for best spotting. The water lily lake part is stunning.

Nice view to have some picture. But probably you wont stop long here. But this is kind of landmark which you shall visit. Dragon head, body and tail at located at different place. We pass by the dragon body before we reach here and my kids are interested to find out where the dragon tail is and we found it.

We went by car to Kho Yo and took the ferry to Songklah. First we passed the queue for the ferry and were amazed by the fishermen village near by. It takes quite a while to find a place for a U-turn in this narrow street.

I visited this place and was amazed at the beautiful island inhabited by muslim fishermen and there families. A very peaceful, serene and picturesque way of life is portrayed here.
