Island Hopping in Southeast Asia
Hammock time on Perhentian islands.
I can't think of any place in the world where there are more islands than in SE Asia. There are tons of islands in Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam. But all these places pale in comparison with Philippines' 7,000+ and Indonesia's 17,000+ islands.
Below are photos from some of the islands I had a chance to visit.
Koh Phi-Phi in southern Thailand - pradise on earth, but destroyed by the mass tourism.
Ha-long bay - an amazing place to visit but destroyed by the mass tourism.
