Bungus Beach at the end of a wonderful day.

The best thing about little places is the big surprises they have in store for you.

I had no idea about Bungus Beach, except that it was quiet. And I'd seen pictures and read stuff on the internet.  No tv, no fancy stuff. Which was what I was looking for. Quiet beach; hopefully no other holiday makers: just mingle with the locals.

And that was exactly what I found on this little bay facing the Andaman Sea.

Each evening, the fishermen in the area work together to bring in the catch. That evening, there were some five other fishermen pulling the net in.  So synchronised, so rhythmic. Such a lucky break for me. Yaayy!



  1. Seems like a nice place to relax ... or even live a simple and quiet life!

  2. A very nice picture of the sun late in the day. It looks peaceful and a nice way to end the day.

  3. I was at this beach last year; one of the prettiest beaches I've been to yet!

  4. This is a beautiful place, a perfect setting for some romance. Happy Valentine's Day and Gong Xi Fa Cai!

  5. gong xi fa cai belle!

  6. A lovely beach, and lovely photos of it. Nice job. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your comments on my flowers. The person who commented after you told me what they are, so now we can try to get some more this year.

    I looked around your blog a bit and you have some really nice photos. I have very fond memories of a week I spent on the Island of Penang, Malaysia many many years ago. A beautiful place!
