Tha Pom Klong Song Nam - Odd tiger temple -

View Thaïlande on CatAndre's travel map.
We sleep great and are ready to go to 7/11 to get some breakfast (bad Ovomaltine stuff and terrible cookies) that we enjoy on our bungalow's terrace (did I mention the VIP bungalow for 700 baht??). We then decide to hit the road.
We take small roads and tours and detours and end up at a dead-end claiming to have good seafood and coffee (Tha Pom Klong Song Nam). I yearn for a good coffee... We stop and Flo visits a bit the cement paths going into the Mangrove while I indulge. We buy a couple of headbands and 'pareo' like towels before taking the road once again.
We miss the road for Ao Nang and a few hundred meters further we end up in front of a temple with a lot of tiger icons. We stop and meet a huge spider, a nice monkey who wants to steal Flo's stuff and a nice little temple area, not very pretty but quite spiritual.
We wait for the monks to finish their lunch and go inside to pray and give money to our birthday buddha (Sunday buddha).
After some more hours of road I am ready to get pampered! I'm exhilarated when I see the Sheraton sign and we end up booking for 2 nights. We clearly see that we disturb the peace of the Sheraton arriving on our mopeds but oh well, they'll deal with it!
I get a facial treatment at the Sheraton spa and we light a lantern on the Beach. I order an hawaiian pizza in the room and we watch Dragon Ball Z.
