Sep 8, 2014 - Koh Phangan - Full Moon

This was a big one. We watched the fireshow late, over cocktails and so it was a tough get up again. Lucky for me there was nothing happening tonight. Oh wait? What, there's one of the biggest spectacles of idiotic young travellers in the world tonight? Oh no. So despite my ignorance I had planned this a while. Every full moon on the adjacent island of Koh Phangan there's a gigantic neon all-night party the whole world goes to. My plan all along: go to the island from Koh Tao at 4pm, come back to Koh Tao at 8am the next day with no hotel...

Sep 20, 2013 - Koh Phangan

Its safe to say that this island is 100% party island!! Its the standard to go out on the first night in a new place...well we've kinda made it our rule lol so first night we all purchased a bucket.....ie a sand bucket & added lots of booze to the mix....played ring of fire with our new neighbours from 'cali' and had one hell of a night getting familiar with our new surroundings. Dancing on bars....watching people skip a rather large skipping rope on the beach & obviously more alcohol consumption!!! Made a few friends mainly isreaelie peeps...

Dec 23, 2012 - Full Moon on Christmas Day

Finally, one of my most anticipated party sessions was finally here… The Full Moon Party. And what a better way to celebrate it then on Christmas Day. So Will and I headed over to Koh Phangan a couple of days early so we could travel around the island and see the sights. Having taken the advice of a friend we met in Koh Tao, decided not to stay in Haad Rin (where the parties at) and headed for the west coast. Decision well made. The bungalow was beautifully set right by the beach where an amazing sun set could be seen. We debated the issue...

Dec 22, 2012 - Seeing some of Koh Phangan

We thought it would be a good idea to hire a moped today to get about a bit and show Samantha some of the island. So for the usual 200 baht (just over £4) we were underway (see photo). Angelica gallantly volunteered to stay behind on the beach (no hardship for her) as we couldn't fit 3 on the bike. S was nervous at first sitting on the back but soon got the hang of it and we zoomed along at 40 to 50 kph. We stopped at a Chinese Temple in the northern part of the island which was only built in 1992. Very peaceful and marvellous views of the...

Dec 21, 2012 - We are still here!

Snorkelling at Sail Rock: We went with Sail Rock Divers, a very professional diving school which is apparently only one of two on the island with a practice pool. The rock itself is about about a one hour boat trip away in the direction of Koh Tao and is a rock that sticks up from the surrounding sea. For divers it looked great but no so good for snorkelling today as it was quite choppy waters which kept on going down the tube. We saw huge shoals of fish swirling just beneath us possibly being pushed up towards us by the divers below. Later...

Dec 20, 2012 - Relaxing in paradise!

When the hardest decision you have to make all day is which swimming costume to wear, you know you are chilled out. We found about a week ago we no longer knew or cared what day of the week it was. That is a good feeling though I have to say rather alien to me after a lifetime of working. Today was one of those days. In the sea. Out of the sea. We have lined up a day of snorkelling off Sail Rock for tomorrow. This is supposed to be one of the best locations in the Gulf of Thailand to go scuba diving. Will report back tomorrow, unless of...

Nov 28, 2012 - My 'Trip' At the Full Moon Party!

When I think of my time in Koh Phangan – ‘I like to sleep all day and party all night’ springs to mind. The journey from Koh Tao was pretty terrible as it was raining so much everyone’s bags where on the outside of the ferry and it was pouring. The boat was tipping and crashing against the waves, people were being sick in their hats – it’s a good job I don’t get travel sick. After 2 hours we arrived, still absolutely pouring we got our soggy bags and made our way to a tut-tut who took us on a god dam awful journey up and down bumpy roads...

May 8, 2012 - Koh Phangan with ang

The boat or catamaran from Koh Samui was great and as the hotel had arranged our taxi and boat tickets we didn’t even have to think, we just woke up had our brekkie and fell into the cab. The pier was packed full of Da Youtt as there was the full moon party on Koh Phangan that weekend and there were up to 30,000 people expected. Anyway we had arranged our accommodation so the hoards of people trying to get you to stay at their place didn’t have to worry about us and the hotel sent a cab for us so that was a bonus..until we got in the back...

Jan 18, 2012 - Last night in Southern Thailand

Well today was quite an adventure. We woke up and decided to keep the motorbikes for another day. We ate breakfast and headed to the Northern part of the island for some white sand, clear water beaches. Beautiful! There was a sand bar to a close island which was neat. We rented some snorkeling gear and also laid out. We all got some mild sunburns on certain parts of our body. It was soo crazy hot there I kind of expected it after a while. We found some neat shells as well. After the beach we headed back to out resort to change, eat and...

Jan 17, 2012 - On the islands

We were supposed to go to the Half Moon party but it ended up being too much money but I don't feel so bad about it cause some of the other people at the resort came back from it and said it wasn't that great. Instead Roslyn, Ella and I sat at the bar and started playing cards. Joy (the very sweet and friendly bartender) came and took a seat with us because the bar was slow. He tried showing us a game and we kinda got the idea but with the language barrier it was a little hard to understand fully. So we got him to play 21 with us and he...
