Every time we think about this city, we see a mega city crowded with a tremendous amount of people. Those who were born and raised here and have been urbanized since the very beginning of their lives. Those who came from different places either inside or outside the United States. These are ones who look for hope and opportunities. The ones who seek better lives. Through not permanent, tourists who would like to see New York with their bare eyes, help add up the number of pedestrians.
This Big Apple has been a symbol of hope, opportunities, prosperity and happiness. It has an image of the city that never sleeps. Millions of lights from those billboards pleasure our eyes along with strangers on the side walk. Buildings have been placed neatly, repeatedly into a rectangle shape divided from each other by the streets and avenues. This city has its charm. It provides everything to everyone who gives it a try. On the contrary, in some period of time we are in the city. We may feel the emptiness and solitude. The feeling of being a tiny dot surrounded by big grey blocks. The feeling of a life among 8,550,405 lives.
Morakot cave is a hidden treasure waited to be explored. Visitors have to swim to the entrance and discover a big chamber without a ceiling so the sunlight can shed inside this cave. The beauty that the visitors can witness inside the cave is white delicate sand with an emerald colored sea.
It takes around thirty minutes to travel from Kuan Toong Ku ferry landing to Koh Mook. The ferry will take visitors to the entrance of the cave where there is a small hollow that only small boats can enter during the ebb tide time. Tourists have to wear life vests and swim across to the other side of the cave which is 80 meters long. The tour guides have to check the daily ebb tide before bringing visitors inside.
The other side of the cave is a white delicate sandy beach with many rare trees. If the weather is nice, the sun will shine through the trees and reflect on white sand.
Morakot cave is compared to an emerald of the Andaman Sea. There is also Farang beach waiting for tourists to visit. Here you can also see other nearby islands and watch the sunset.
How to get there
