#DidYouKnow that Koh Tao, in Thailand was formerly an Island For Prisoners?
From 1933 the island was used as a political prison, before this the island was uninhabited apart from the occasional wayward fisherman looking for shelter. In early 1947, the then Prime minister pleaded for a royal pardon for the prisoners which they received at the end of that year. Their reward for being freed was to be put on a boat to Surat Thani and abandoned at the beach.

Pig Beach is an uninhabited island located in Exuma, the Bahamas. The island takes its unofficial name from the fact that it is populated by a colony of feral pigs that live on the island and in the surrounding shallows.
-
The pigs are said to have been dropped off on Big Major Cay by a group of sailors who wanted to come back and cook them. The sailors, though, never returned; the pigs survived on excess food dumped from passing ships. One other legend has it that the pigs were survivors of a shipwreck and managed to swim to shore, while another claims that the pigs had escaped from a nearby islet. Others suggest that the pigs were part of a business scheme to attract tourists to the Bahamas.
-
The pigs are now fed by locals and tourists and the island is unofficially known as Pig Beach by the locals

We were in Phi Phi Island not that long ago. I have seen few things in my life that come close to the natural sceneries of Thailand πŸ’™ #DidYouKnow that PhiPhi, althought being one of the best Islands that you can visit in Thailand, is being heavily damanged by tourism? The main beach has become overcrowded with party goers and as a result the real authentic Thai feel has been replaced by clubs and bars.

You can still see amazing places in Koh Phi Phi. Here's what we did: we took a kayak and started exploring the hidden spots around the island. Do the same, you won't be disappoitned πŸ˜„
