Ko Samui

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — admin @ 11:47 am

An uneventful ferry crossing took us from Ko Phangan to Ko Samui, the costa del sol of Thailand. After looking for a cheap place to stay for an hour we found a cool place called The Loft.

After failing to make it to the beach in Ko Phangan  (other than for the Full Moon Party) I was determined to get to the one here and we managed to go a couple of times. As with all these places, the water was crystal clear and the sand was the correct golden tone. One drawback was that the water was shallow and also very stingy. I don’t know what it was but something in the water would irritate the skin. It wasn’t all over and didn’t last long but it took the fun out of swimming. I guess it was stray stings from dead jellyfish but who knows.

Other than the beach, the main activity in Ko Samui is drinking. We avoided the multitude of prostitute bars and found the best pubs and clubs the place had to offer. The Green Mango gave us a chance to dance ourselves into a sweat and we met Jo, Bex and some of their friends there for Doetie’s last night. She’s off to Hong Kong before heading home to Holland.Our plan was to head off the next day too but after a multitude of buckets, beers, whiskey and cocktails the planning fell into disarray. Belinda had kept herself relatively sober so she left the next day for Krabi, while Helen, me and Doetie were all feeling the effects and stayed for one more night.

The next day, me and Helen headed off to Phuket where I aimed to extend my Visa to allow me to see a last bit of Thailand.

On another note, I’m now onto my 4th pair of flipflops, a lovely pair of black Havanas. One pair broke, one pair went mouldy and the others were lost at the Full Moon Party. Hopefully I’ll keep these for longer but somehow I doubt it.
