  The sacred front of the boat
by muratkorman

Thai people strongly follow their beliefs. One of the first things we were warned on LOB trip was to stay away from the front end of the boat. This part is considered sacred and you will always see some flowers decorating this area as well as Thai flag. To be respectful to their beliefs, none of the guests in LOB trip got closer than where I took this picture.
