Staying on an island has its own perks. Apart from the relaxed lifestyle, the silver sands, the emerald waters and great food, you always get to see a great sight irrespective of the time of the day and even so during sunrise and sunset.
I saw one such special moment as I walking by the King Rama V rock at Laem Jor Por Ror on the southern side of Sairee beach. Apparently, in 1899, King Chulalongkorn – Rama V, visited the island and had his initials carved on a large boulder here. This place is now a place of worship and reverence for local residents and visiting Thai people.
I was very happy to see such a great sunset from such an important monument. The sun had set, but the last remaining colors formed a brilliant hue on the horizon. The boulders in the foreground gave the moment an artistic touch.
