This temple is the home of Koh Samui’s most famous landmark the Big Buddha. Most visitors come to marvel at the sheer size and beauty of this remarkable statue at some point during their holiday. Visible from several kilometers away and even from the air when arriving on or leaving the island , the 12 meter tall golden image stands proud. (source)

Situated on Basuanga Island, Coron Town is a small parochial fishing town. Most of the guest houses are built on piles over shallow water.
Being able to go on a vacation in Palawan is something that we have been hoping to do one of these days.
Thanks to sis Vix for this lovely postcard (and for the beautiful Christmas card, too!) Thanks, sis !

Thanks to sis Sheila for sending me another postcard. Thanks a lot, sis !
