閣骨島(Koh Kood)和曼谷有些距離,多數遊客前往閣骨島的方式,是先搭乘5個多小時的巴士到Trat府,再轉車至Laem Sok碼頭,然後乘船登島;或是在曼谷機場有船公司的專車直達Laem Sok碼頭,再搭船登島,不管哪個路線,基本上要6~7小時的交通時間。

Koh Kood Island is a short distance from Bangkok. Most visitors travel to Koh Kood Island by taking a 5-hour bus ride to Trat, transfer to Laem Sok pier, and then take a boat to the island. Or, you could take the shuttle bus offering by the shipping company in Bangkok airport, and go straightly to Laem Sok pier, and then land the island by taking as boat. No matter which route you chose, it basically takes 6 to 7 hours to get there.

 

聽起來很累,但就是因為有些距離,使得閣骨島能保留原始樣貌而未遭破壞,這個隱密而低調的小島上,有著絕美的沙灘及原始叢林,是泰國國境之東的人間秘境。

It sounds tiring, however, just because of the distances, the island could maintain the original appearance and not be destroyed. On this secret island, with beautiful beaches and pristine jungle, it is really the wonderland in the eastern Thailand.

 

不過我沒有機會採用背包客的方式進入閣骨島,因為我們入住的Soneva Kiri有私人飛機,並且在閣骨島上有自己的Mai Si Airport,他們會在曼谷蘇汪納蓬機場將賓客以私人小飛機送往島上,飛行時間大約1小時,再加上10分鐘左右的快艇,不過富豪級的享受價格不斐就是了。

However, I did not have the opportunity to enter the island like the way the backpackers go since we stayed in Soneva Kiri Hotel, which offers a private plane and has their own Mai Si Airport. They send guests to the island from Suvarnabhumi airport, Bangkok by a private plane. The whole journey is fast, about one-hour flight and 10-minute speedboat sailing, but it would cost quite a fortune, though.

難得本部落格能帶大家看看奢華級的旅程,我自己也相當興奮。我們的Soneva Kiri私人飛機是早上7:40從蘇汪納蓬機場起飛,清晨5點Annie和司機就來W接我們,到達機場才6點多,雖然超早超想睡,但是內心雀躍得不得了,一到機場就完全醒了。

 

Soneva Kiri的櫃臺在機場D24的位置,雖然小小的,但擺放著Soneva Kiri Check In Counter的立牌很顯眼,很容易就能找到。

從曼谷開始,Soneva就很一致性地和度假村一樣,使用木製告示牌,不僅具有保留原始風貌同時還兼顧環保。

Just like in Bangkok, Soneva also uses wooden signs. It not only retains the original style, but also takes environmental protection into consideration.

小飛機除了正副機師,還能搭載8人,但是還有是載重上的限制,所以除了出示護照,還要秀出體重。

 

IMG_6997_副本

 

雖然登機也不會特別檢查,但還是拿到登機證囉,從閣骨島回來時因為是Soneva Kiri自己的小機場,沒有安檢人員,所以回程是沒有登機證,這張去程才有的登機證一定要好好收藏啊!

而我們的行李,從曼谷蘇汪納蓬機場Check in後,我就沒見到它們,直到我們進入Villa房間,才看到它們已經在那等著。

From checking-in in Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, I did not see our lugguge until we entered the Villa room, seeing them have been waiting there.

 

因為時間還很早,Annie帶我們到星巴克喝咖啡,快到登機時間之前,迎賓人員帶領我們去搭小巴,小巴載著我們穿梭在機場跑道,終於看到我們要搭乘的Soneva小飛機。

 

IMG_7007_副本

 

Soneva是非常重視住客隱私的度假村,一般不會安排住客們搭乘同班私人飛機,所以我們的班機上除了我們之外,就是度假村的工作人員。也因為我們是住客,優先上機直接坐在正副機師後方,可以很近距離看到駕駛飛機的過程,覺得好新鮮喔!

Since Soneva Resort emphasizes on the privacy, they usually do not arrange guests to take the same private aircraft, and therefore, there was nobody else except the resort staff and us on our flight. Since we were customers, we got the priority to directly sit in the back of the co-pilot, which let us closely see the whole flying process. It really was a whole new and unforgettable experience for me!

 

IMG_7014_副本

 

但我因為太興奮一路在直播,導致照片看起都很蠢XDDD!

 

IMG_7019_副本

 

 

 

小飛機飛行高度比大飛機低許多,從頭飛到尾都能看到下方的風景。
The flying height of small aircraft is much lower than the large one, so we could clearly see the amazing landscape through the entire flight.

 

IMG_7029_副本

 

一路上看到好多泰國非常純淨的小島,每一座小島都好美、海水好藍好清澈,好想每一個都去探訪啊!(經過這次難忘的閣骨島之旅,已經把泰國小島們列為旅行口袋名單,希望可以一一實現!)

Along the way, I saw so many small islands of Thailand, each of them is so beautiful, and the sea is so clear and blue, which made me really want to visit all of them! (After this unforgettable trip to Kojima Island, I already made these islands on my traveling lists, and I wish my dreams can come true someday!)

 

IMG_7037_副本

 

我以為小飛機會很搖晃,但人家機長飛行技術好穩,我後半段睡得有夠熟,飛機上其他人也都睡翻了,其實很好睡啊哈哈!

 

大約一個小時的飛行,終於飛抵閣骨島啦!剛到時太興奮,加上泰國工作人員要拍我們,所以迷你的Mai Si機場照片,是回家那天拍的。

About an hour's flight, we finally arrived to Koh Kood Island.

 

這是機場的小小候機室吧,很原始傳統泰式茅草屋建築,很喜歡這種貼近在地的感覺。

This is the airport's small lounge. It is the original traditional Thai-style thatched cottage. I really like the feeling that I could touch the ground easily, and be so close to the nature.

小小Mai Si機場的停機坪。

The small “Mai Si” airport apron.

 

IMG_9123_副本

 

小小Mai Si機場的跑道,僅820公尺,非常考驗著機師們的技術。

 

IMG_9125_副本

 

回到我們抵達的那天,一下飛機實境秀馬上再度展開,攝影師及工作人員已經早一步先飛抵閣骨島,我們一走下飛機馬上拍攝,還好我今天已經有備而來,4點就起來化妝嘿嘿!

 

IMG_7038_副本

 

踏上閣骨島的那刻起,Ms. Friday就隨侍在側。我們的Ms. Friday是個可愛的小女生「Ming」,她曾經在武漢唸書,所以能說挺標準的中文,在度假村的四天三夜,有能說中文也可以通的管家,更放鬆更自在,呼!

 

星期五管家開著度假村內使用的電動車,也就是高爾夫球車接我們到碼頭,其實機場到碼頭距離不遠。

 

IMG_7042_副本

 

現在看照片真是蠢斃了,因為我一路上還在直播,反而沒有好好欣賞閣骨島,而且攝影師拍下的影片,一定一堆我在直播的蠢樣。

 

IMG_7052_副本

 

抵達碼頭,快艇已經準備好等著我們。

 

IMG_7057_副本

 

吼,這自拍棒,想找達人P掉它XDDD!

 

IMG_7063_副本

 

IMG_7068_副本

 

一路上的風景好美、空氣好新鮮、海水好藍好清澈,乘坐快艇被風吹的時候,一度覺得自己在拍電影,好萊塢電影裡面的富豪不是都這樣嗎,蠢土包子哈哈哈!

Beautiful scenery along the way, fresh air, blue and clean water…, while taking the boat, I felt like I was shooting a film as the wind blew on me. Isn’t Hollywood movie just like that? Ha ha ha!

 

IMG_7072_副本

 

噗…因為忙著直播我錯過了用相機紀錄「Ming」的船上服務,一上船,管家會先遞上濕毛巾,接送上冰涼涼的西瓜原汁,

 

IMG_7073_副本

 

就在接近度假村碼頭時,遠遠已經看到度假村的高階主管們排排站揮手等帶著我們。每一位賓客抵達和離開度假村時,最高主管都會親自帶隊迎接和送客,覺得好溫馨好溫暖!

Right close to the pier, we could see from far away, the high-level executives of the resort had been waiting and waved for us. When guests arriving and leaving the resort, the supervisors and executives will personally lead to welcome and send them, which is really so sweet!

 

IMG_7080_副本

 

噗…這種畫面不是在電影裡才看到的嗎?就富豪搭遊艇回到私人碼頭,管家們列隊歡迎XDDD!總之,踏上Soneva Kiri的第一刻起,我就知道我深深愛上這裡的一切,離開的時候我知道我會很捨不得島上的風景和人們。

From the moment I stepped on Soneva Kiri, I knew I have fallen in love with everything here. It would be very hard for me to say goodbye to this island.

 

IMG_7084_副本

 

又因為忙著直播,我錯過拍下最重要的交出鞋子的戲碼,「No News No Shoes」是Soneva的宗旨,希望賓客們能更接近大自然,用雙腳感受土地及海水的溫度。

"No News No Shoes" is Sonia’s philosophy; hoping guests could be closer to the nature, feel the warmth of the land and water with their feet.

 

從降落到搭快艇全程的直播如下:

 

 

 

所以一上碼頭,星期五管家便會收起你的鞋子,走過一小段白沙後,管家舀水幫我們把腳沖洗乾淨,送我們到要住三晚的Villa。

Because of that reason, the steward put away our shoes and rinsed our feet after we walked through the white sand, and then sent us to the Villa where we stayed for three nights.

 

IMG_7088_副本

 

閣骨島,一個沒有7-11、沒有喧擾的觀光客的寧靜小島,等著我們用雙腳去感受這片純淨的土地。

Koh Kood Island, a tranquil island without convenience stores, is waiting for you to feel the pure land with your feet.
