Sunset on Don Daeng

There’s no better way to enjoy the sunset behind the sacred mountain of Linga Parvata than by reclining by the poolside at La Folie lodge on Don Daeng island. The sun retreats behind Linga Parvata and the entire scene can be watched from your sun lounger, cocktail in hand. As the light dies, local farmers bring their buffaloes and cows to the water’s edge for a soak and a brush down; fishermen’s boats mill about hoping for the last catch of the day; local school children cycle home and hummingbirds hover frantically around the pink bougainvillea framing the scene. Above, swallows swoop. In a country that has eaten a good deal of its wildlife, the sound and sight of birds at sundown was a wonder.
