Adventure Thailand ’09 – Phra Nang Beach

Oh my, it’s been a week since I published my last blog entry.  It is difficult sometimes to write a story when you are tired, stressed and restless.  But I had to do it; I have to finish the Thailand Adventure stories because in a month’s time I will be in Thailand again. 

 

Anyway here’s my travel story in Phra Nang Beach, Krabi, Thailand.  Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think.

 

 

April 30, 2009Phra Nang beach is the last stop of our trip that day before we headed to our villa at the Sunrise Tropical Resort where we stayed on the east side of Railay Beach.  This beach in Krabi belongs to Railay peninsula, an area that can be reached only by boats, and that has three beaches. Amongst them I find this one to be the most beautiful. The sand is perfectly powdery, and the beach is surrounded by huge rocks, a beach-lovers and climbers paradise.

Why not Philippines?

No authentic Thai massage, no Tom Yum Soup, no Skybar, no Bed Supper Club, no floating market and no Thai cooking lessons in Bangkok. Why?  It’s just like that! 🙁

But hey, why not Philippines right? I’ve been to different countries in Asia but I haven’t had a chance to see the beautiful places in the Philippines. I think it is the right time. I came up with four beautiful places in the Philippines that I would like to visit this coming September and October and these are:

Adventure Thailand ’09 – Paradise Island, Krabi

 

After seeing the Koh Hong Lagoon, the next stop of our Island tour that day was Paradise Island and it was probably the most beautiful Island I have ever seen in my life.  You may agree with me after seeing the photos that I took, but being there is way better.

 

En” our boatman said that the island is called Paradise Island, I don’t know if he meant it looks like a paradise or the name of the island is Paradise.  Obviously it looks and feels paradise, but after Googling it no name of Paradise Island in Thailand came out.

 

Oh well, I guess one of our readers here will comment on that but for the mean time here are some photos.

Adventure Thailand ’09 – Koh Hong Lagoon


Koh Hong Lagoon is one of the places that we’ve been to when we were in Krabi, Thailand.  We rented a boat for the whole day and the boatman named En took us to some of the most amazing islands in Krabi.  We’ve visited Paradise Island (I am not really sure if this is the correct name but I will find out), Phra nang Cave and Koh Hong Lagoon which I will talk about in this article and a travel article won’t be complete without photos.  Yes, photos!

 

Koh Hong means Room Island, Koh means Island and Hong is room. 

 

Why did they call this Room Island?

The name “Koh Hong” came from the island’s landforms having the Limestone Mountains surrounding the sea with a channel looking like a room gate.  That is how it was called Koh Hong or Room Island.

“I Have Fallen In Love With The Same Woman Three Times”

You may be wondering about the title. It is a poem written by the late Senator Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino for his wife former Pres. Corazon “Cory” Aquino who passed away yesterday, August 1, 2009 from a Colon Cancer.  In my own little way I want to give tribute to the first woman President of the Republic of Philippines.

The poem is about the love of Ninoy for Cory in three stages.  The first time was when she was young, the second time was when she bore their first child and the third one was when he was in prison and Cory became the soul of their strength.

It was 1973 when Senator Ninoy was incarcerated at Fort Bonifacio and it was their 19th wedding anniversary. From his prison cell, Senator Ninoy Aquino wrote a beautiful loving tribute to Cory. That he has fallen in love with the same woman three times.  Ninoy was assassinated in 1983 at the formerly known Manila International Airport (MIA) Tarmac and that same airport was renamed Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).

Then in 1987 the Ninoy Aquino movement headed at that time by Cecile Guidote-Alvarez commissioned Jose Mari Chan if he could set the poem to music.

“I Have Fallen In Love With Same The Woman Thrice” is the final title of the poem after it was turned into a song.

Lyrics and a music video after the jump.
