A nice spot to wander and shop for souvenirs or eat some delicious food in one of the restaurants or bars on stilts over the water. Not too much here but glad we visited. Spent a few hours there.

Fun to browse through these old shops. The hammock shop is really good. I had coffee and cake at Malee Malee. My friend knows the owner. Interesting artistic stuff there. Not the usual tourist stuff.

A lovely little village to spend an afternoon at. Lots of little bars and restaurants and 'trinket shops' and a nice walk on the pier.

Tuk Tuk are easily available throughout the island, u will see them by the roadside as well. Probably just need to haggle the price abit, keep it within THB90-150 one way.

Best way is to rent a car or scooter, it was really cheap. But it is possible to get a taxi. Your hotel will definitely help you with thay information.
