HATYAI, THAILAND - CRYSTAL ISLAND, LOTUS FLOWER LAKE & DINNER

After having a good lunch, we visited the beautiful Crystal Island and Lotus Flower Lake in Phatthalung in which you can view the wonders of diamond in the island and the caves as well. To reach the island, we took a long tail boat for 30 TB per person.
