paddling on Jalil's Island

Jalil's Island - Joilla Deep - is no longer what it was when my wife and I first went there. It was a place unspoilt and virginal. Today, right across from the Parjatan Motel stands the admittedly unbucolic spectacle of the Teknaf River Port. Noise and light pollution have invaded the scene. And above all, a boat ride to Jalil's Island no longer makes for romance.
