Welcome to the Andaman Sea

Trang and Satun provinces on the Andaman coast in southern Thailand was my first assignment beginning in late October 2011. Ko Lipe, Ko Tarutao, Ko Adang, Ko Bulon Lae, Ko Kradan, Ko Libong, Ko Sukorn, Ko Muk, and Ko Ngai. Yes, I was (and am) a lucky guy. I’ll say two things about visiting the Andaman Sea islands of Thailand: 1.  It’s a good place to go if you like boats; and 2. I haven’t been all that many places, but these have to be some of the most beautiful on earth. Here’s a little taste of those first six weeks.

Haat Farang at Ko Muk; this was where I stayed while covering my very first island. Not too shabby.

If only I had a ball; Ko Bulon Lae.

One of the most cosmic beaches I've seen; on the way to Lipe. Anyone know what it's called?
