Sea Kayak Halkidiki visiting Thailand!
Sea Kayak Halkidiki is all about travel, adventure and having a good time!
Continuing our post category “Sea Kayak Halkidiki in the World”, we are posting today a short article about our trip to the exotic and picturesque country of Thailand, where we have been traveling for about 2 weeks during December and January of 2013.
During our time in Thailand we visited the islands of Koh Lipe, Koh Samui and of course the capital Bangkok.
Koh Lipe is a small island in the Adang-Rawi Archipelago of the Andaman Sea, in the Satun Province of southwest Thailand, close to Malaysian border. The Thai name is transliterated in English as the Paper Island! There are many sites for scuba diving and snorkeling around Koh Lipe and its neighbouring islands. The calm, clear water makes Koh Lipe ideal for snorkeling, with 25% of the world’s tropical fish species found in the area.
Ko Samui is an island off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus in Thailand. It is located close to the mainland town of Surat Thani in Surat Thani Province. Ko Samui is Thailand’s second-largest island after Phuket, with an area of 228.7 km2, a population of over 63,000 and an annual tourist population of 1.5 million.
Finall, Bangkok is the capital and the most populous city of Thailand. The city occupies 1,568.7 square kilometres (605.7 sq mi) in the Chao Phraya River delta in Central Thailand, and has a population of over eight million, or 12.6 percent of the country’s population.
