BangkokMap; Koh Tachai Isle - Solar Daytime Trip From Khao Lak

On our recent vacation nosotros spent a full of 4 nights inwards Khao Lak, in addition to we'll live on going i time again side past times side fourth dimension the kids convey some schoolhouse holidays. It was really relaxing, much of the fourth dimension was spent inwards the pool, or walking on the beach, or having breakfast, lunch, dinner in addition to sunset beers! But nosotros did convey i twenty-four hours trip planned in addition to booked inwards advance. Koh Tachai is a small-scale isle almost 50km N of the Similan Islands, out inwards the Andaman Sea off the W coast of Thailand. We had heard that the speedboat tours left from Ban Nam Khem, a small-scale line-fishing port in addition to hamlet N of Khao Lak, in addition to from at that spot it would live on almost 50km to Koh Tachai. I convey been to Koh Tachai many times inwards the past times for diving on liveaboard boats in addition to convey had some swell dives at that spot amongst manta rays at a dive site called Tachai Pinnacle, but I had never laid pes on the isle before! Over the concluding pair of years Tachai has been becoming a pop option to the Similan Islands, which acquire a lot to a greater extent than visitors. Thai tourists peculiarly seemed to live on heading to Tachai, I saw lots of lovely photos on Thai websites in addition to also on Thai TV channels. I knew my friends at Attractions of Phuket, Thailand-blog/?edt=Jamie-Blog&utm_source=tachai">Easy Day Thailand could majority us on the tour, thus nosotros signed upward in addition to were create on a warm but hazy morn on Apr 25th. Minibus pick upward was on time, but nosotros headed southward towards Thap Lamu port, non N to Ban Nam Khem. Looked similar we'd live on leaving from Thap Lamu which would hateful a 70km speedboat trip. We had a hold off of almost 20 minutes earlier boarding the speedboat spell the tour operator sorted out diverse groups heading to unlike islands. Coffee, tea in addition to toast were provided (self service) in addition to thus nosotros headed to the speedboat. Aside from our menage unit of measurement of 6, all other customers on the trip were Thai.

We sped out of Thap Lamu, the heaven cleared upward a little, the ocean was apartment calm, looked similar a perfect twenty-four hours coming up! I had been a piddling worried almost my parents doing a long speedboat trip out inwards the Sun all day, but amongst mirror-like seas in addition to a flake of cloud cover, nosotros all sat inwards the front end of the speedboat spell all the white skinned Bangkok Thailand Thai people hid inwards the shade :)

It was going to live on quite a long ride, almost xc minutes to Koh Tachai. Would convey been less from Ban Nam Khem, but divergence betoken had been switched due to the tides - Thap Lamu is a deep H2O port used past times dive boats, line-fishing boats in addition to the Thai navy too. Well anyway, every bit the Sun came out in addition to the ocean was thus calm, a longer ride did non matter. My miss enjoyed beingness correct inwards the bow amongst the air current inwards her pilus ...

Unfortunately ... things thus went a flake pear shaped. Some black clouds ahead. Surely only hazy skies? Maybe a lite shower? We sped onward. Very black clouds. Lightning.

I sent the menage unit of measurement "inside" in addition to took a quick snapshot amongst the telephone earlier the pelting bucketed down...

Well, the side past times side xxx minutes were really very wet. Everyone was soaked since the roof of the speedboat had a gap all the way around, in addition to inwards came the rain. My pathetic dad was non feeling every bit good healthy, in addition to I was only cursing our luck! The speedboat carried on, ocean was a piddling bouncy but at that spot were no large waves, but at the same time, at that spot seemed to live on no allow upward inwards the pelting in addition to no brightening of the sky. We arrived at Koh Tachai inwards the rain, left all bags in addition to cameras nether comprehend on the boat, thus off into the treeline to detect some shelter. Must convey carried on raining for some other hour, fourth dimension nosotros would convey spent snorkeling or walking on the beach, instead of hiding in addition to drinking tea!

And then, every bit if past times magic .. within minutes (so it seemed) the pelting disappeared, the heaven cleared in addition to it was all of a abrupt the perfect day! Everyone was stripping downward to swimwear in addition to hanging upward clothe to dry out inwards the trees. And thus nosotros could all encounter the attraction of Koh Tachai island! Our guide decided that the 'jungle walk' that should live on purpose of the twenty-four hours would live on cancelled to give everyone plenty of beach fourth dimension afterwards the rains. I went climbing dorsum on the speedboat to await for everyone's bags in addition to cameras which had been stored inwards a dry out infinite when the pelting started. And thus the photo-shoot could begin!

Much of the side past times side pair of hours was spent on the beach, playing inwards the H2O amongst the kids, doing a piddling snorkeling (but non much to encounter correct past times the beach, you lot convey to swim out further) in addition to taking photos. The tour operator provided drinks all twenty-four hours (juices, sodas, tea, coffee, drinking water) in addition to snacks similar nuts in addition to biscuits. The actual tiffin was a flake disappointing for me, though I retrieve the pelting meant that the staff had a difficult fourth dimension getting everything ready. Anyway, why waste matter fourth dimension eating inwards the shade when you lot tin jump!

The kids wanted goose egg to a greater extent than than to swim, snorkel in addition to play inwards the shallow waters past times the beach. It certainly is really beautiful in addition to you lot can't genuinely acquire colours similar this thus unopen to Attractions of Phuket, Thailand, although Racha Yai island is pretty good. I only wished the conditions had been similar this ALL day, although considering that I got a pretty skillful sunburn anyway, perchance that was plenty sun. The kids tin ordinarily live on out all twenty-four hours without feeling the sun, though my miss has fair peel which tin acquire quite red, in addition to it did on this day. For a pair of hours, kids were inwards their ain somebody paradise!

OK, non quite private, at that spot were almost six speedboats at that spot on the same day, but every bit amongst most tourist locations, if you lot walk a pair of hundred meters you lot lose 90% of the people who only plonk their lazy behinds downward on the start available patch of sand. The beach on the due east side of Tachai is almost 700m long, plenty of room to spread out. Tommy the guide called it 'Paradise Island', which I approximate is the tourist refer or the refer his employers say him to use! There are plenty of paradise islands only about these parts! Koh Tachai has no evolution relieve for a ranger station, some toilets, a pair of covered areas amongst a concrete flooring in addition to some thatched bamboo gazebos. Hope it stays that way.

Days similar these are to a greater extent than for the kids than the adults! I am happy that our kids dearest the outdoors, swimming, boat trips, in addition to don't complain every bit good much when nosotros create other things similar watch temples. On this same trip (to live on blogged) nosotros visited a pair of seismic sea wave memorials in addition to I retrieve the kids learned something from that. But the twenty-four hours at Koh Tachai was certainly to a greater extent than fun! Here's the boy, mask inwards hand, skipping his way through the shallows...

Took a spell to acquire off the beach, every bit the tide was low. Everyone had to acquire onto a national green apartment bottomed boat to transfer to the speedboat. For a 2nd I was worried that nosotros were heading direct dorsum to port, in addition to amongst the pelting we'd genuinely exclusively had a pair of hours of beach time, sure as shooting nosotros could non live on leaving already? No ... nosotros headed along the due east coast of the isle for some snorkeling. The kids in addition to I joined most of the Thai folks from Bangkok Thailand in addition to Tommy for almost 20 minutes, in addition to at that spot was some skillful fish life on this purpose of the island. My boy was quite proud of the distance nosotros swam during this snorkeling session. The kids dearest the water, I approximate I'll convey to live on taking them diving soon!

In the halt a really skillful twenty-four hours out. With the rain, in addition to thus the sun, everyone was cream crackered past times the halt of the day. It is genuinely possible to create the trip if you lot remain inwards Attractions of Phuket, Thailand, but that agency a pick upward at almost 6am. Certainly this is a meliorate choice if you lot remain inwards Khao Lak. Now, until concluding calendar month I did non genuinely help for Khao Lak, but I tin encounter straight off why people similar it. If you lot convey a two calendar week Attractions of Phuket, Thailand trip, thus a few days inwards Khao Lak is a skillful idea, but the twenty-four hours trips to Koh Tachai in addition to the Similan Islands exclusively move inwards high flavor Nov - April.

* UPDATE * 2016 ... iii years afterwards this trip. The Thai national green service has closed Koh Tachai to twenty-four hours visitors in addition to snorkel tours every bit it was getting every bit good crowded. This should allow the shallow reefs to recover because I read that they were getting damaged past times people standing on them or boats dropping anchors. The isle IS nevertheless opened upward for scuba diving trips.
