    MALAYSIA and THAILAND .

    I was fortunate to spend from 2014 to 2018 cruising and detecting there. It will be very difficult to replicate the high karat jewellery that I found there. Apart from Port Dickson Malaysia and Krabi in Thailand most finds came from the Islands.

    Phuket was the only place I saw someone detecting when I first arrived, most MDers go there and it is popular even with the locals... but most of the good stuff is deep and the west coast gets pounded by waves in the monsoon season so what is not found quick gets buried deep fairly quickly. I found a few rings; there. But most of my finds were from beaches that the day trippers go to.. these beaches are wall to wall with long tails and speed boats so you need to get there before 10am and after 4 pm.I am sure I only scratched the surface...there are just so many beaches.

    Great treasures, Love that color!

    I remember a hunter called Crack Badger..he was in the area you speak of..S.Korea I think. His video's got me interested in metal detecting. Some of the High K he got was insane...I believe he was in the services also? This was around 2008..

    HI TERRY , I FOUND YOUR POST INTERESTING AND AGREE THAT THERE IS DETECTING OUT THERE BY LOCALS ESPECIALLY IN THAILAND AT THE MORE POPULAR RESORTS SUCH AS PHUKET AND PATTAYA AND THEY HAVE BEEN VERY SUCCESSFUL IN GOLD FINDS , BUT THERE ARE BEACHES SUCH AS NAI HARN IN SOUTHERN PHUKET , KOH LARN AND OTHERS THAT ARE VIRGIN TERRITORY THAT HAVE NOT BEEN DETECTED AT ALL BUT STILL GET THOUSANDS OF TOURIST EACH SEASON , I ALSO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A METAL DETECTING CLUB ON PHUKET , ANYHOW LIKED THE PICTURES OF YOUR FINDS AND GOOD LUCK FOR THE FUTURE,

    Loved those crack badger videos back in the day when I was just a rookie Detectorist. He really had me loving my 250 back then when he would talk about the Ace and his finds. Whatever happened to him I wonder.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I know Nai Harn well ...Used to anchor there for Christmas and New years. Most of my finds where from the east coast.
    Towards the end of my stay I met two local Thais that used CZs, they also did pretty good and travelled around with a long tail.
    Koh Sumui and the islands north should be good, but you need to cover a lot of ground.

    Hey Irishgoldhound thanks. I have seen some awesome videos too.. When it comes to posting that sort of stuff I am a real rookie and struggle a lot.
    Several leave the hobby and don't post anymore.

    Like so many detecting is location, location, location...I do know of 3 hunters that use to kill it when they were over sea's or in the islands. They move back after there time was up and detecting becomes normal.


    kindgrind360 the crackbadger moved back to Florida? I think..

    I know location does mean a lot... but for me its mostly luck and mother nature opening her cookie jar. Been to some beaches...nothing.... go back a while later and bam ..targets everywhere. Still struggling to post pics... My picture files are a total mess spread over three computers.

    Man, love the pics. Making my mouth water given the closed beaches in the area and lack of metal detecting opportunities right now. We want MORE!

    Metal Detecting Goal in Life is to Find Wife a 2ct Diamond Ring (so she'll be quiet about all my metal detecting).

    Hey Lawrence..Thanks buddy...You are not the only ones on lock down, only one of us is allowed out of the marina once a week for groceries and medical supplies. I am getting square eyes from all this computer work. I have been on a yachting forum for about ten years and only have three posts so far...So trying hard to make a hundred posts on here and its hard work for me
    At least we are still alive.
