Coconuts are found in abundance in Bangkontee, a village near to the more well-known Amphawa. This skyline reminded me much of my childhood's place in KL. We bumped into this place by accident in our search for coconut palm sugar.

We've also a big harvest that day. Taking in the beautiful scenery, soaking in the serenity and enjoying the warmth and hospitality of the locals.
