All trips share an inevitable similarity - the waiting


 
In Issue 18 of Cape+Kantary Gene Mahasmut Bunyaraksh gives you some ideas of what music to bring with you - http://www.capekantaryhotels.com/ckmagazine/Issue18/index.html 
 
Music for the plane - Claude Debussy's Suite Bergamasque: Clair de Lune - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vG-vmVrHOGE is one which perfectly complements watching the clouds go by and the change in the light - close your eyes and imagine tropical islands hidden beneath those puffy clouds.
 
He also suggests music to accompany the bus or the train, chilling at the beach and watching the sunset.
 
Visit us at Cape Panwa Hotel and watch the sunset from the local village

A new property - Cape Kudu

 
In the heart of Phang Nga Bay is Koh Yao Noi (little Yao Island) and beause it has fewer ATM's and 7-11 than its older brother Koh Yao Yai, it is still predominantly unspoiled.

Here there is a diversity of attractions – both cultural and natural – for the visitors to enjoy.

 
From watching the early visitors to the forest around Cape Kudu Hotel; the Oriental Pied Hornbills, - to tasting the local indulgence; a banana and condensed milk 'roti'.
 
Explore the island on a bicycle or the local transport.
 
Find out when the 'everything 10 Baht truck' is close by and pay it a visit.
 
And much, much more, of course.
