the Departure – ITINERARY 5

the Departure is my 1st photo essay to document all my travels in abstract and straightforward images. Numbers, seats, movements, lights, terminals, buses, trains, planes, stranger and yet familiar faces with their own expression are the main particles of the Departure. To capture and embrace the priceless moment that been forgotten by crowd are the reason for me to come out with this photo essay.

the Departure mainly presented in series of black & white photographs however due to beautiful colors of the sky, sea, river and land I decide to present some of the photos in colors.

Inspired by Ricardo Cezar.

The main destination in this trip is Koh Lipe, this is the 1st trip after Perhentian closed due to monsoon season in Eastcost of Peninsular Malaysia. From Sg. Golok we take a train to Hatyai, there is army patrolling inside the train! This is all because South Thai conflict I think. Then from Hatyai to Satun by mini bus. Pakbara pier was not really busy as at the moment is low season for Lipe. Lipe do assemble Perhentian little bit. A small island, which u can walk exploring it. Not as busy Phi Phi, but lots of construction going on..maybe next 3 years it will be like Phi Phi, too crowded. So guys, my advise is go to Lipe now while the beauty is not overwhelm by people density.

Cheers!

  1. Beautiful pics Khalid!! How are u?? And beautiful and lovely Koh Lipe!! as Perhentian!! and completely agree with u, too much construction. I’ve been twice there with a year diference and already i felt so sad because the difference… but sadly also i felt that in Perhentian already… I heard Lipe not too long ago was as Perhentian, small litle paradaise with jungle path. We arrived late!
    Thanks for ur pics! Keep showing to us ur life vision! 🙂 See u around kawan saya!!
    Love, kisses and hugs,
    Estel·la
