At the entrance to Salakphet Bay lies Koh Phrao Nok. Years ago, before the west of Koh Chang was developed for tourism, this island and its resort were very popular with Thai visitors. Nowadays the resort, called Sai Khao ‘White Sand’ Resort is deserted and nothing more than a lost place.


I met HIM - "ONE".
He lives all by himself on this wild, little Island.

My Thai was only good enough to ask, if I can look around and take pictures. As far as I understood his name was "ONE". He offered me a bottle of water and we exchanged some smiles before I left. I love it to get in touch with people like him - even without lots of words.

thanks @road2horizon we've stayed for a few nights in a hotel nearby on koh chang and visited the island with a boat. by the way we had two Canoes with us to explore around - which we can highly recommend as well. :-) I was asking myself those question as well. But he has a boat and we saw him fishing in the evening as well. :-) Thanks for your interest. Would love to have you on board and share my travel stories with you. We're traveling and working as Volunteers at different places - our adventure is open end. would love to keep in touch. cheers sue

It is sad that a place once beautiful is now deserted. Are those beds and tvs left by the previous rest house? I wonder how does ONE live there by himself. Nice of you to go there to get in touch with him :)
