Arrived this morning at Admiral Marina, Port Dickson, Malaysia, after an overnight run from Pangkor Marina. Lots of big ship traffic in the Malacca Straits and especially around Port Klang, but we managed to get through it with no issues. AIS is so incredibly helpful in those situations!

Run: 119.1nm (215.6km)
Weather: balmy

Anchored at Ko Phi Phi Don, Thailand. We agree with a friend's description of this anchorage as both beautiful and appalling. It is a lovely bay and has the potential to be a fantastic anchorage if there weren't longtail boats driving by us every few minutes and techno music blasting from onshore (day and night). Just stopping here for the night before heading to Ao Chalong tomorrow. We don't feel compelled to return here.
