Yesterday was Anong’s birthday so we went out and did a few fun non-climbing things. We slept in then went to the Catfish Farm. It’s sort of like a zoo. They have lots of catfish obviously and a few other animals. It costs ฿50 to get in and they also give you some food for feeding the fish. It was fun throwing the fish food in the lake and watching the fish try to be the first one to eat it.
Next we went to lunch. I don’t remember the name of the place but it was on the way back from the catfish farm. The food was pretty good but the best part was it was next to a creek and under a canopy of trees so it was relatively cool. The weather has been quite hot this week. Getting up to around 37C.
After lunch we went back to the room to relax for a bit then went out and got massages. There are dozens of places to get a massage in Ao Nang and most of them are pretty cheap with an hour long massage costing ฿200 to ฿300. Quality of the massage is hit or miss but it’s usually not bad. When paying for the massages I was reminded that not every Thai person is out to scam the tourists. I accidently gave a ฿1000 note instead of ฿100 note and the lady let me know I gave her too much.
After the massages we went back to the room again to get cleaned up for dinner at Lae Lay Grill. The food is pretty good but the view is amazing.
