The view alone is enough to take your breathe away completely, accounting for more than half of the allure of the village itself, as well as the entire island.
The beauty of Mother Nature shows its face in broad daylight here, with the splendor of the elements coming together to form a majestic picture of serenity, industry and the natural beauty of the island itself.
Reinforcing the extremes, of the aesthetically stimulating appearance of the village and its immediate surroundings, is the ever present dynamic of the sonic pleasantries, which offer an audible channel into the harmonious collaboration of the industrial side of things and the naturally occurring fauna and flora.
So compelling is the experience that it would be quite impossible to capture the true essence of Salak Petch with the mere use of a camera – the sonic dynamics make up for than half of the 1000 words told by a photograph.
The industrial side of the coin is not nearly what the west would relate to, since the bay is primarily in existent to cater for the fishing community that resides in the beauty of Salak Petch Bay Village, feeding the subsistence needs of the villagers themselves, but also feeding the ever-growing, exotic appetite of the tourist dining market.
Salak Petch Bay Village makes for the ultimate tourist experience in that it offers an authentic experience of the local culture of the Thai people of Koh Chang, with not too much of a commercial focus on the tourism, so nothing is really faked and you get the real experience, without being made to feel like a tourist that sticks out like a sore thumb.
