Spellbinding Sunrise in Phattalung

Pattalung, Tale Noi
The reward for waking up early.

At Sri Pak Pra Boutique resort the night was short. The food in the evening before was delicious, and the beers plentiful. I and my Thai friend enjoyed Thai country music played in the restaurant, and the fresh cool breeze kept the tropical heat away. No matter how short the night might have been, if you don’t wake up to the morning call you will deeply regret it. That was already clear from the photos exhibited in the hotel.

Pictures that pulls out the ambition to be a National Geographic photographer in all of us.

Goodmorning Pattalung
Another day is here

– Whoooa!

The sunrise here is just stunning!

Longtail boats equipped with oversized engines making a soft noise that breaks the dawning calm, glides out to meet the sun, stopping nearby the giant tarantula looking fishing nets. Fishermen manage the nets which are mounted on a wooden frame. Local Thai people call the construction yo. The nets are dipped into the water and then raised to catch fish.

After the blessing of a stunning sunrise, we continued to see the farmers lead their buffalos out in the water. On the lake, we were also admiring blooming water lilies and trying to spot birds in the narrow canals.

On Talee Noi

The resort is situated by Tale Noi, a wetland area approximately 20 km inland from the east coast peninsula of the Gulf of Thailand. This is a non-hunting ground and a waterfowl area adored by ornithologists. There are two sections of the hotel, Sri Pak Pra boutique resort. One of them has a pool which is in the never section and the other hosts the lake view restaurant.
