This small town has two sections. The first section is the main town, which is poor, but developing. Lots of activity; Malaysia is on the move. The second section of town is the dive portion. This is the upscale part of town where the grocery store is and sit-down restaurants (as opposed to the back-alley food stalls in the other part of town). Here’s a photo of the upscale portion:
Here is a photo of the dive boat (you can see the town mosque in the background) and a couple of local fishing/transport boats.
Here’s a photo of Kate with her morning coffee after just having breakfast. Fortunately, this great little place is NEXT DOOR (i.e., 15 steps) from the hotel door.
