There is a quiet place on the South-East part of Thailand named Khanom, where tourists pass by rarely. During my stay I just met 2 foreigners there. Khanom is known for its famous Pink Dolphins that visits local sea bay every morning and evening. I had a privilege to be guided around this area by a local man named Piset. This woman were selecting coconuts and separating into size categories, whom we met by the local coconut farm. She was doing a hard job in the heat of 35 degrees Celsius and preparing coconuts for sale for USD $0.5 each.
