James Bond Island
Next, we headed to James Bond Island, the one where they shot the movie, "The Man With The Golden Gun", an old Roger Moore Bond flick, if anyone's interested. I'm more of a Daniel Craig and Pierce Brosnan fan. It was teeming with people and I'm not really fond of crowded places. After a couple of photos, I was done with the place. They did have stalls selling accessories but they were priced high and I felt that I could buy the same stuff for half the rate at the local Krabi shopping market. And I did.We had a pit stop at some local farmers land and learnt a bit about their farming, cuisine, and his life story as an example of life. Long story short: he is an old man who begged for food on the streets. Later, with a minimum wages job, he managed to live on his own, saving up what little he could. In due time, he started a small shop which sold Ramen and soups of different kinds all of which costs nothing more than THB 10. He believes that everyone who walks into his shop should be able to buy his food. His kindness and concern for society stood out listening to him talk became a huge part of our Thailand experience.
