not because of the sex tourism here, but because we were looking for a day trip on the beach / island and spent maybe only about 1.5 hours there, lunch already included. at least the lunch was fine and we have had good company. before the island (ko lan) we have waited involuntarily approximately 1.5 hours on a loud and oil-stinking platform for para sailing in the middle of nowhere. mass (conveyor belt) tourism at its best 😱😭
the island ko lan can be easily reached by boat from pattaya, which is some 100 km southeast of bangkok. well, the day trip to ayutthaya was much, much nicer.
