Wow! Very nice view. We went to Lawang Park where we can have the view almost all of lake size. The only complaint is there is no area/spot we can go to the lake side

The lake has a beautiful view, almost as though it was too good to be true. The breeze was enjoyable as well, as it keeps you cool. However, it does not offer any activity such as paragliding or flying fox. Nevertheless, while enjoying the view...More

When the weather is clear, you can see the entire lake from the road with 44 corners. When it is not sunny and clear, it is said that the lake will be covered with fog. Luckily, when I was there, the day was sunny. There's...More

Located in the center of mountains around. After passing through 44 times turns through the hills, with friends, we enjoy the view. The water was so calm. The lake is being used by local people to grow fishes with traditional ways. Unfortunately we could not...More

Phi Phi Island is Thailand's island-superstar. It's been in the movies. It's the topic of conversation for travelers all over Thailand. For some, it's the only reason to touchdown in Phuket. Even with all the hype, it doesn't disappoint. Phi Phi's beauty is a large chunk of the allure. The islands, when approached by boat, rise from the sea like a fortress. Sheer cliffs tower overhead, then give way to beach-fronted jungle. It's love at first sight. The second part of the why-we-love-this-place story is attitude: few places on the planet are this laid-back. Of the two islands, one is completely free of human inhabitants (Phi Phi Leh), and the other is without roads (Phi Phi Don). There's no schedule, no hustle-and-bustle, no reason to be in a hurry.

Bonjour, je vais avec mon mari au lac Maninjau début juin. Avez-vous un contact pour Alem Guest house? Pouvons nous nous balader en mobylette dans le coin? Si vous avez quelques renseignements et conseils, je suis preneuse (prix, bus, trucs à voir?). Avant on reste 2 jours à Bukittingui puis 2 jours à harau Valley, finalement, j'ai les mêmes questions. Après, nous allons à Padang, avez-vous un bon hôtel là-bas? Merci beaucoup Anne et Jeff
