Ideal spot for Whale Shark trip
The room as fairly small but had everything we needed for a single night. There’s not a lot to do in the evening other than have something to eat at one of the few restaurants but as you’ll be getting up early it’s probably not the priority. Like most tourists we were here to do the whale shark trip. The location is perfect two minutes walk from where the boats leave. We got up at 4:00am and were in the queue by 4:15. We were about 30 from the front but by the time we’d done some waiting around been briefed and got our Life jackets it was 5:50 and the sun was up. We were supposed to be on boat 4 but some people seemed to be slow to get going and so we were promoted to boat 2 which was actually the first boat out! The sea was a bit rough but after just 5 minutes paddle we were with the whale sharks and soon in the water. I really enjoyed seeing these amazing creatures up close. You are supposed to stay 5 metres away but no one seems to have told the whale sharks at they come much closer! Back to the hotel after the viewing for a shower. We were really thankful that we were so close and could get into dry clothes and have breakfast next door. All in all a great place to stay the night before seeing the whale sharks.

很可愛的旅館,但洗澡水壓很小,且不提供熱水 雖然知道附近旅館水壓都不大, 但這間是整趟旅途唯一沒有熱水的 洗澡滿不方便的 但整體服務都不錯,環境很可愛,也很乾淨
