Dreams: the place most of us get what we need - Amy Hempel.
Bamboo Island (Koh Phai in Thai) is one of the six islands belonging to Phi Phi small archipelago in the southern Thailand’s Province of Krabi. Lying approximately five kilometres northeast off Koh Phi Phi Don, Bamboo Island is a tropical dream come true. With 600m on its largest width and 700m on its longest height, the island is entirely surrounded with a strip of white sand and by turquoise waters. Its central part is covered with lush vegetation including Bamboo trees, hence the name of the island.
Long-tails boat moored on Maya Beach at Koh Phi Phi Ley.
In Thailand, especially in more remote fishing communities, a belief in the supernatural permeates almost every aspect of life. Most of the long-tails seen in the Andaman Sea have their prows adorned with coloured sashes and lotus flowers, with many boat owners changing the flowers and burning a few incense sticks every morning. While the combination of colours on each boat is the choice of the owner, the decoration is intended to pay respect to Mae Ya Nang, a female spirit said to live in the body of the boat.
