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 thirty 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 ;-)

Good luck!
