In this Episode:
- Talay Wak: Talay Waek is a unique beach destination located between the offshore islands of Koh Kai, Koh Tup, and Koh Mor which are located in the Krabi province of southern Thailand. Talay Waek, which in English means ‘the sea divided’ is a natural feature which occurs when the Andaman Sea flows in two directions; being parted by a long sand bar which links the islands of Koh Kai (or Chicken Island, which is also the largest), Koh Tup and Koh Mor. This phenomenon happens each day as the tide recedes.
