Travelfish and Ko Kut in the New York Times

Well, this qualifies as the kind of mention we love to wake up to!

Travel writer Freda Moon went to Thailand for some dental work and ended up on one of our all time favourite Thai islands, Ko Kut.

"On the recommendation of the indispensable Southeast Asia travel guide, Travelfish, I had made a reservation at Ngamkho Resort. A dozen or so bare-boned cabanas built of rough-hewed logs, bamboo mat-lined walls and a corrugated plastic roof, the family-run Ngamkho isn’t a resort in the typical sense. Six or so feet off the ground and barely big enough for a full-size bed, our hut had a bathroom but no air conditioning or hot water. During our five-night stay, I missed neither. The front porch had a hammock overlooking a grassy lawn, palm trees and the water. At dusk, the cicada buzz sounded like electricity pulsing through the palms."

You can read the full story here.

We stayed at Ngamkho and it is everything Freda says it is—we loved it.

To the many NYT readers dropping by today, welcome, you can read more about the island here.
