Had the good fortune to visit Koh Mook in January and kayak over to the Emerald Cave from Charlie Beach.
In the four hours we took exploring and relaxing, there's an unbuilt upon beach just past the Emerald Cave, we saw the grand total of four other people, also on kayaks. Had the cave completely to ourselves when we got there.
if anyone has any bucket list places to go that are normally packed now is a good time to go.
Really cheap deals on hotels too.
I can understand an aversion to the perks, but the idea that it's "morally unjust" for firms giving perks to declare them, particularly when "the population is suffering", preferring them not to be open and honest about it, is just bizarre.
I can't think of any other word for it.
