Rubber is still an important product in the south of Thailand. You will see rubber trees everywhere which are quite easy to spot as they are planted in straight lines and normally have small cups attached to the trunks.
The natural rubber which is a white milky fluid is harvested at night for some reason.
Canoe trip at Khao Sok
"Start of the canoe trip"
OK we turned off the road and walked down to the river for the canoe trip.
Nothing extraordinary except for mozzies attacking me.
I tried to be as quiet as possible so as not to scare away any potential animals but the kids kept making a din I gave up.
We did see a snake coiled up on top of a tree above us. Alas, the elderly Canon Powershot G2 I have has limitations. The picture was taken but you cannot make out the snake in the picture.
"Me with Michaela"
She squirmed a lot but like the new sights as I pointed to her.
"Edwina as usual"
Loved bending over the side of the canoe to touch the water.
"The karst formation"
This picture is the karst formation as we approached it.
"A little nearer"
On our way here, we saw jungle mists covering the tops of the karst. Like a scene from a Tarzan movie.
"Are we there yet"
It seems the canoe trip is pretty long.
The size of this rock is huge. From where we are, it is as tall as a skyscraper.
The canoe trip then ended and we got off the river.
"A picture at the scenic point"
There is a scenic point on along the road. Vehicles can be driven to be parked safely to observe the majestic karsts of Khao Sok.
