It is 9:00 AM before the bus arrives to take us to Chiewlarn dam. It is my second day in Khao Sok and already I am excited to see what this region has to offer.
As we round the corner to the pier, I see an immense expanse of water painted crystal blue by the sky above. Hopping aboard a long tail boat, we depart for the floating raft house where we will spend the night. Though moving at high speed, the expanse of water lined with gigantic limestone cliffs seems to stretch lazily in the distance; there is only the splash of the water to remind us of our velocity.
