Pattaya and Coral Island Trip

Parasailing

Getting Ready!

After a comfortable night at Grand Sole Hotel, we departed for the Coral Island by speed boat. Before reaching the island, we made a stop at platform for Parasailing. Here is a picture of me high above the sky.

No More Fear Of Heights!

After waiting for everyone in the group to finish their turn, we soon found ourselves smack in the island with crystal clear water.

We wasted no time to find a good spot to chill. Once our time is up, we headed back to the hotel to freshen up and for lunch. Next on the intenary was a visit of the Noch Noong Village which apparently is home to about 800 Cambodians. It is not exactly a village but kind of a cultural park cum botanical gardens cum elephant sanctuary.

It was soon time to head back for dinner and then our schedule Thai Massage session. I have to admit that I was very nervous as I have never completed a massage session before as I fear the pain. Looking back, I never regret the experience anymore and look forward to the next one.
