My first visit to Koh Tunsai (Rabbit Island) was about four years ago. I spent one night there with some friends but my stay was ruined as I was down with food poisoning. Again on the very first day of 2011, I revisited the island with my wife, my friend and his wife.

Even though nothing much has changed, I noticed there are increase in number of guest houses and restaurants there. Even massage services are available there now!! To my surprise, Barangs outnumbered the locals on that day. It seemed most of the guesthouses on the island were fully booked, but since we had already booked our rooms in Kep we had to return back to Kep on the same day. Kep was less crowded than I expected. And I was happy with that. The next day I was able to trespass some old villas in Kep with my friend while our ladies went crab shopping. I may write about it later, but now I would love to share you some photos from the island.

My First star trail
Star Trails at Kep Beach F/5, Speed: 226 sec., ISO:200

This photo was taken at 2nd not 1st of 2011 at 05:39AM. I did not intent to have the star trails but just wanted to have the smooth sea. Yet as I do not own any ND filter, I had to no choice but to shoot when the light is very low. I did not even see the star trails when I viewed the LCD monitor soon after I got this image. If I had seen it, I would narrow the aperture and drag the shutter speed for a few minutes more.
