The fire places on the beach cause you to notice this remarkable play of shadows and lights around you. This night impressions on the Baan Tai beach with my Koh Phangan friends that I will remember for a long time. The picturesque beach is located close to the Mac Bays Resort and a former One 2 Dive diving center. You can see here Kiters being pulled by their kites across the bay, overlooking the Koh Samui in front, and the coconuts collectors, who use monkeys for picking up nuts.
