The route out to Cha Doa was a fantastic choice as we saw the most incredible views on the way.
Hantalay Buddhist Temple
Situated high on a hill amongst the dense jungle is this excellent example of a Buddhist Temple. Situated off the road between Sunrise and Sunset Beaches it is well worth a stop off. This unusual Temple differs from the other Golden wonders found in the areas as it is basically a wooden shack. Brightly decorated with colourful artefacts a few Monks live here with their many cats and dogs. An unusual, but interesting place off worship.

She was very professional and knowledgeable and made the lessons fun. You come away feeling totally revived.
No tourist coming here on holiday leaves without at least one night at the bars. After spending most of the day sleeping or reading in your hammock under the swaying palms that fringe the beach you should be ready to party. Of the many bars around this area, we found Jacks Jungle Bar to be popular, and it fast became one of our favourites along with Karma Bar. Staff were pleasant, and lots of fun and you certainly won’t go thirsty at either.
