Pick a piece of paradise
We've got a new daily competition running here at Travelfish. Every weekday we'll post a photo of somewhere in Southeast Asia and all you need to do is tell us where it is. First one with a correct (enough) answer wins -- simple as that!

What do you win?
A complimentary Travelfish Guide of your choice. There's a bunch of titles to choose from, from Remote Southern Laos to Phuket and from Hanoi to Ko Phi Phi -- there are 15 titles in total ranging in price from US$2.95 through to $11.85 -- and more are on the way. You can browse the full collection here.

What do you mean by correct (enough)?
If we post a photo taken let's say on Chaweng Beach on Ko Samui in Thailand, then there are a lot of "correct" answers -- Asia, Thailand, Ko Samui or Chaweng Beach would all be technically correct, but we'd be looking for at least a Ko Samui... though something like "this photo was taken under the fourth palm tree from the end of Chaweng Beach at around 9:15 am" would beat just a plain vanilla "Ko Samui" -- so, be as exact as you can be.

What's the small print?
You can only win once. And you can only guess once for each photo.

Every weekday -- what time please?
If you've got your nose in the atlas and finger on the mouse, primed to pounce to collect your prize, you'll need to check back regularly to see if a new question has been posted, as we're just going to post whenever we feel like it. Remember, we're based in Bali, so check your timezones.

Oh come on -- I don't want to check back every five minutes! Alright -- we'll make an announcement on Twitter and Facebook exactly five minutes before we post. Our Twitter feed is here and the Travelfish Facebook group is here.

If you don't know what Twitter is, check it out -- it's a tremendous way to waste time, procrastinate and meet some interesting travellers -- a bit like Facebook really ;-)

Pick a piece of paradise: Where is this?

So where is the above photo of? Remember, be as specific as you can -- and don't forget to say which Guide you'd like if you win.

Good luck!

They're axe-pillows on the veranda, so I'm thinking Thailand, but I think it is on the mainland not an island. Somewhere in Trang maybe? If it is, I'd like the Ko Tao guide please!

Hmm. Those look like limestone karsty things in the background... Maybe outside Vang Vieng? I would like Phuket if I'm right please.

Ok, will tie this one up... until tomorrow!

mattocmd - you had the right island, but frasereastwood has nailed it, so guide goes to the latter and mattocmd, look forward to your best guess tomorrow!

Fraser will contact you off list to find out what Guide you want, as we don't have one to all of Thailand!

And to sammib, when you find some reefs like that in Laos, please do let me know!

I'm locking this thread now and will post again tomorrow with a new pic -- note Twitter and Facebook junkies, we'll announce it half an hour beforehand - not five minutes!
