is a beautiful beach destination that provided a nice, relaxing
break after the rainforest. Being in Thailand, it is also
relatively inexpensive. We stayed in a wonderful resort, the
Chedi, on a quiet, northern beach - away from the bustle of
crowded Patong Beach. From there, we went on a canoe tour
of Phang Nga Bay (where the James Bond film "Man with
a Golden Gun" was filmed), took a snorkeling trip to
an offshore island, and got a Thai massage at the spa.
