Early in the morning, I woke up and had a stroll at the beach. It was fascinating seeing the waves and hearing the sound of the waves early in the morning. Like some kind of a therapy. However, the sky was a bit hazy, so I went straight to the Coconut Groove Coffee House for breakfast.

After breakfast, we went to Hafiz’s Cherating Activities again as today, we were told that we are going to do the mangrove tour. Boy, how cool it is to meet the mother nature!

The boat cruised the Cherating River at a slow pace, allowing us to see the richness of floras and faunas at the mangrove forest which surrounded the Cherating River.

Once in a while, the boat operator will stop and showed us some of the animals and creatures living in the mangrove forest.

Yesterday, during the fireflies tour, we were told not to pull the tree branches, but was never told the reason behind it. Turned out that the reason is actually because there are snakes on the branches! :D

The tour lasted for one and a half hour, but the experience was priceless.
