Wishing Tree, Koh Lipe
OK, so I don’t know if this is really a ‘wishing’ tree but for some reason people have been tying pieces of colourful material onto its branches for what must be a while.  It’s the same material that you find decorating the tails on the longtail boats so I guess that the fishermen may have something to do with it.  Maybe it’s for good luck?  Who knows, all I know is it’s definitely very pretty fluttering in the sea breeze.

Does anyone know why this is done?  Can anyone shed some light please?
