Getting to Koh Mak - KohMakGuide.com
This is an island that we spend many vacations at.
I remember it before the tourist discovered it but it remains a beautiful place.
Thai girls can find it boring because there is little to do apart from relax *90* and the shopping is not on the agenda here but its certainly worth while remembering if you have family and friends over and wanting something a bit different.
