      Sleeping in tents with bed! Waking up to. Chirping birds and sound of water surrounding mangroves. If you want to see turtle hatchlings without the hassle of other tourist crowds then book walai penyu resort. I liked having pleasant conversations with the staff from trekker's lodge and the honorary warden. Food is fantastic! Please bring mosquito repellent and portable fans as it can be warm in the tent at night. If you have a great sense of adventure the rain in the island at night or early morning can be a good experience. Peaceful vacation! Also recommends hiking towards the village in the island. :) Kudos to the staff here! Cheers!
