This far out in the clear, warm water, I was only calf deep looking back at our resort.
Mae Haad is the port town where the piers are located and where we came in on the ferry. There is a definite feel of the local Thai lifestyle here....lots of shops, restaurants, massage salons and dive shops. When we were here three years ago, Tanner got his PADI Rescue Dive certification here at his favorite dive shop Master Divers. When I stepped in, they remembered him, as they don't see too many 16 year olds get their Rescue Dive license.
One thing we also love is the street food vendors you find in all island towns. The most wonderful satay, kabobs and fresh fruit shakes will set you back .50 to $1.50....can't beat it...delicious for next-to-nothing.
