With tropical islands all over the world, you have a great choice when it comes to choosing an island as your vacation destination. How does spending a week on a private exclusive island in the Caribbean sound? Nekker Island is such a place that you can rent daily or weekly when the owner is not using it. However, you should be prepared to pay a steep price for this exclusivity. To get ferries from Krabi, it is important that you consult ferry companies for a ferry schedule during the planning face of your holiday. The timing of your travel can have a major bearing on whether you get a ferry to this place or not. This is because ferry schedules are known to change frequently and it is always important you keep yourself updated with such changes. You also need to factor delay time in your schedule especially when traveling during the high season when everyone else is also traveling between Krabi and Phi Phi.

In 1938, two major political parties, and the labor unions affiliated to them combined efforts in fighting for political independence from England. By 1962, Jamaica was granted political independence.
