Samui Culture

We went over to see the Big Bhudda today and then had lunch on Chaweng beach, picked up some bits and pieces followed by beer and a curry. Smashing day

Private pool

We checked out of noisy road dog poo beach bungalow and moved up into the hills of koh Samui. Private pool (sometimes), biggest hotel room I have *ever* stayed in and absolutely stunning views over to Ko Phangan. Bit of a trek to the shops but ho hum. Off to big bhudda and Chaweng today. 

Koh Samui

We made it to Koh Samui. Beautiful sunsets just like we remember but the place has changed massively and not in a good way 🙁

Koh Phi Phi

We headed into the Phi Phi national marine park by speedboat. We popped into a few beaches but Hat Maya ( where the beach was filmed ) was just ridiculously busy. Even the main Phi Phi Don beach was pretty rammed. Quite disappointing and annoying in many ways 🙁

Finally escaped the traffic of Bangkok

Wedding over we took the first opportunity we could to escape the chaos of Bangkok City and fly out to Ao Nang beach in Krabi province. Massage, snorkeling, streetfood and beer. Not necessarily in that order. 

Tuk tuk ho

A morning in Lumphini park looking at the monitor lizards and then a crazy tuk tuk ride home. Quick dip in the pool before heading out for a dinner cruise on the Chao Praya River. 

Mooching along Khao San Rd buying sarongs and other assorted tat…..and beer. Arrived via tuk tuk from Wat Poh where we couldn’t get in because we had shorts on. 🙁

Fish feet

For some reason the fish preferred the old feet of Emma and I. We were in hysterics with the fish nibbling away. Strangest feeling ever
