About our Sail from Langkawi to Phuket, Diving in Ko Ha, in the G&T Boatyard in Thalang and our round trip with Micke and Lucka through the Phang Nga Bay to Ko Phi Phi, Ko Lanta, Ko Muk (Emerald Cave), Ko Ha, Ko Pu and Ko Roi
From Kuah in Langkawi we engine around the corner and pass the West coast of Langkawi. Ko Tarutao, the next island 3.5 miles north is already Thai and the fishing boats again look completely different.
The entrance to the marina is different from what we have seen so far..
There is a gate and two ropes with floating elements blocking the entrance for waves and unwanted visitors. I have to call Ruth in the office via satellite phone to arrange the gate to be opened.
The workers of the marina come and move the elements, then they wave at us throwing both their arms towards us. We understand the sign as “go away”, keep waiting and wonder what the problem is. After 15 min I call Ruth another time and she tells me “ they are waiting for you to come in”. Ok, so we slowly enter the marina and attach to our berth.
Shortly after we learn that the local sign for “Come” looks like our European “Go away”, no wonder we are confused…
