Dog Day SunrisePosted: May 2, 2011
The Thais love dogs (I think The King of Thailand once did a photo book about one of his dogs.) and Koh Lipe is no exception. For the most part the dogs are friendly and well treated. They make good friends to hang out with on the beach. Unlike Mad Dogs and Englishmen they know enough Not to Go Out In The Midday Sun.
Hiking around Koh Lipe repeatedly, I ran across a few small groups of semi wild (?) dogs in the center of the island but had no problems with them. I think the natives are friendly. (In other places, when hiking around wild dogs, carry a walking stick and a few stones to throw. Never run from them.)
