After lunch, it was time to head out to Lipi. We hired a boat to take us to Don Det island. The rate of the fare is one flat for the entire boat from one person to maximum capacity. As of this year, a samakom (association) was formed so there is transparency and cooperation among the driver of the boats. I was a bit nervous to be in the boat with no life jacket. I can’t swim for the life of me so it was quite risky. In the end I said to myself that if I want to take part in this adventure, then I should just go with the flow.

This is our boat. The driver was busy scooping water out of the boat with a bucket.
Getting to Don Det islands was the easy part. The next step is taking a tour ruck to Lipi.
