Our last night in Khanom beach, we went to Hid Lad waterfall about 10 minutes from our accommodation. Its a small waterfall, not impressive in any way. Just fun for the kids to play. They had heaps of fun and... me too.
Cold... cold.... cold....
Brotherhood at its best! To carry each other, literally :-)
The next day, just before we left for Nakhon Si Thammarat town, we met a good friend from Bangkok days, Taka, Nus and Jin. Its our first time meeting their cute little toddler, Jin. He is so cute!
We used to travel together with this couple and some other Thai friends. Nus used to plan everything and we just hop along. It was great fun! I will always cherish those fun moments. Taka and my kids used to play like crazy! It was a great reunion.

After catching up over lunch, we drove towards Nakhon city for a night and then drove towards home with a sleeping-stop at Hatyai.
To sum the trip, it was relaxing. The trip was neither too short nor too long. The food was fantastic! Absolutely undeniably incredibly great!!!! The food sealed the trip. Talking about love of food...
I managed to practice some Thai words for a week, the people of Thailand never failed to make my heart warm (except those in Hatyai).
Welcome was always on their faces, adorned with a smile.
Anyone for a road trip to Thailand?
(The 2010 Thailand Trip was taken from 25 Dec to 2 Jan 2011)
Khanom beach is not too touristic, unlike Pattaya and Phuket. Its basically quiet and does not have entertainments similar to Pattaya or Phuket. The way I like it :-)
If lazing by the beach with a book and enjoying Thai food is something you like, this is your place. There are many hotels to choose from. Tomorrow we will go around to admire some of the other hotels along the same stretch of beach.
Our family room. Bed separated by a large glass partition
Pool is a few steps away from the room
The small pool just infront of our family room. The kids played
a lot in it.... including me
Baan Civilize has 8 rooms, 2 of which are family rooms. Quiet and private. We were probably the noisiest people around,.. er, I mean, my kids.
The restaurant by the beach. Every morning for breakfast, we sit by those tables and look out to the beach
