An abandoned restaurant is taken over by creeping plants on Koh Lipe, Thailand.
Low season results in many establishments closing doors for a few months but I get the feeling this place has been out of action for a while. We stumbled across this place while walking from one side of the island to the other (a mere 15 minute walk). I’ve always found something interesting about derelict properties. Like they have a story that they are holding on to.
One of the great benefits of getting a scooter was the fact that we could explore the city beyond where the songthaows could take us (after a while the fantastic sights of Tesco, Big C, Diana shopping centre, school and the city centre aren’t quite stimulating enough.) One Saturday Tom and I had a look at our trusty city map and mapped out a route that would take us on a mini temple tour of Hat Yai and the surrounding area. Here are a few pictures of the temples that we found on that day and a couple that we had visited previously.
Buddha head, Hat Yai
EDIT: I am going to put together more info on where each temple is when I have the time and a map handy!
