Just some photos I took the other day when I was riding my scooter around Salakkok and Salakphet. Change is very slow in this part of the island and the fishing villages haven’t changed too much in the 16 years I have lived here. There are new buildings but many of the old, ramshackle houses are still the same as ever.
It is now possible to go up the lighthouse on the pier in Salakphet Bay and get some great panoramic photos, inland towards the mountains and south to the islands. Although they sky is quite hazy in my photos.
