Day 5: Koh Phayam
This is the only shot i took on Day 5 on the island of Koh Phayam. There was a lot of walking involved that day and we broke down and rented a motorbike. I didn't want to carry my camera around since this was my first time on a motorbike and i was still adjusting to riding on the opposite side of the road, so i left my camera behind.

Day 6: The hunt for the Sea Gypsy Settlement on the Island of Koh Phayam
According to the Thailand addition of Lonely Planet there are sea gypsy settlements in the northern eastern area of the Island of Koh Phayam. So we rode our motorbike till the road ended and we began our search and this is what we found.

Hello Kitty is transcendant... she penetrates everyone's hearts, even sea gypsies. ;-)

As you can tell by photos above, we didn't find anything but beautiful beaches and blue water. We did find remains of where a settlement once was but we didn't see any actual gypsies. Maybe it was for the best... chissa'?
Day 7: Last day in Koh Phayam and Ranong
Our last day in Koh Phayam was spend having breakfast and laying on the beach reading. Then we had to run to the pier and catch the slow boat back to Ranong.
Here are some shots from that boat ride.

The boat we took could not go all the way into the docking area because of the low tide, so we docked where we could and took a ride on the back of a truck to Ranong's town center. We needed to get back to Ranong to catch a bus 8 hours to Bangkok, but we got into Ranong 5 hours early so we had time to kill. Here is Ranong.
