Barb and I finally made our way to the ferry at Koh Phangan and then took a bus to Kaoh Sok National Park where we arrived around 3:30 pm exhausted from the journey. We checked into Monkey Mansion Bungalow where we stayed in a cute cabin. We also booked our overnight Lake trip for 2500 bhat each through Monkey Mansion Bungalow.
The two of us got a ride to the Monkey Swimming Hole, a local swimming hole that is regularly visited by monkeys. It is located on the edge of Kaoh Sok National Park about a 20 minute walk from our bungalow. You can swim in the clear river water and relax. We also happened to see a trop of crab eating macaques! There were very few tourists there and we saw a few kayakers paddling down the river.
For dinner I had a Thai pumpkin soup! It was out of this world and I will definitely try it again!
