Jul 17, 2017 - Koh Samui

Leaving Penang several days ago brought us back to Butterworth where we caught a train to Surat Thani, Thailand. Then the next morning, we took a bus to Donsak Pier and got on a boat to Koh Samui! We spent 3 lovely restful days on the island doing a whole lot of nothing, such as...relaxing in our infinity pool by the ocean. :) We did also make it to the Big Buddha Temple, Fisherman's Village (a large local market with lots of restaurants and shops), and drinks with a friend from the States who happened to be on Koh Samui at the same...

Jan 21, 2016 - First stop koh samui

After a relaxing first day out when we met all the folks we will cruise with on cruise critic,....will explai that later...we got to simply enjoy some beach time at the fairly Lovely Lipa resort...good family type place that the Russinas have also discovered. Da! We could come back here, just good to hang out for a bit. BUt I have to run as the last tender is moments away and pops will be one too pleased if I miss the boat. Me, too as my wallet will go with it...

Apr 3, 2015 - Nathon, Koh Samui

After a day at sea we arrive at the island of Koh Samui in Gulf of Thailand. On a very hot day (82) and high humidity in the 80s, along with our shipboard friends Trish and David, we hired a taxi for four hours to drive us around the Island. The Island is most famous for its long white sandy beaches and one very impressive Buddha that to our surprise was built in the 1970s. As the day was so hot and humid we decided to head back to the coolness of the ship soon in the early afternoon.

Jan 12, 2015 - Entspannen auf Koh Samui

Nach unserer Rundreise in den Süden von Thailand haben wir uns zuerst einmal im Hotel eingerichtet - Superzimmer mitten in der Anlage! An den beiden ersten Tagen mussten wir uns zuerst an die Sonne gewöhnen und haben deshalb noch die wichtigsten Einkäufe mit den üblichen Souvenirs (T-Shirts, usw.) gemacht. Wie stark die Sonne scheint trotz Bewölkung haben wir dann am 3. Tag gespürt - nur ca. 1 Std an der Sonne genügte, um jedem einen leichten bis stärkeren Sonnenbrand zu verpassen. Werni sah sich an seine Eindrücke in Bali vor 4 Jahren...

Jun 23, 2014 - Don

Today had an awesome sleep in and went for a walk. Found an awesome shell shop and wood table shop.. Wanted to buy it all and ship it home!!! A five metre long table worth $300. Bit sad for such a beautiful tree. Got on the massages and cocktails today. Had breaky at a beach restaurant with a massive language barrier and basically nothing on their menu available. Scrambled eggs and rice were meals all round. Don is our new favourite kid on the block. Funny kid who makes Nutella pancakes from his cart. Is Don, is good,,,he is meeting us...

Jun 20, 2014 - Bangkok has us!

Survived the 9 hour flight to Bangkok! Enjoying the Thailand air and unsanitary roadside restaurants. The massages are ace and our private pool and outside cinema make for a great way to relax and cool down. Keeper pool has opened and am now super stress because I'll be away for the compulsory assessment day. I have just sent an email to the lady in charge of recruitment so hopefully something can be sorted out. Koh Samui Day 1: No electricity all day, which meant no cold drinks, no air con and no refrigeration of meat and dairy....

May 19, 2014 - Day 4

After we checked in, Pool was the first thing that was on our minds. We took a walk into town had a walk on the beach and managed to find the strip aswell. Definately recognise the area from when we last came here. We want to try and find accomomation for cheap to visit next as we dont have a double here despite your reservation (just to singles pushed together which is not really ideal. We found a place called the cottage which is £5 a night which seems quite nice. Good ratings (8.2) and free wifi, just on Lamai Beach. Its a new area that...

Feb 26, 2014 - Koh Samui: Chaweng y Lamai

Y por fin llegamos a las islas. La primera es Ko Samui. El aeropuerto es como...como un chiringuito pero a lo bestia. Techo de madera y hojas de palmera...y una sola cinta transportadora. Primero nos alojamos en Chaweng, zona muy turística. La playa no es gran cosa además de estar repleta de gente local intentando venderte de todo y muchos guiris bebiendo. La playa está algo sucia. Pero hace buen tiempo y tenemos playa, que es lo que queríamos. Investigando en Google maps vimos que justo al sur de la playa de Chaweng hay otra playita y...

Feb 10, 2014 - CNY en Thailande

English below 9 ans plus tard les "survivors" reviennent a Bangkok. Bien plus "lourd" que 2 gros sacs a dos, cette fois-ci, ils sont charges de 3 enfants: Bahia, Aloe et Marin. Ils ont choisis la Thaïlande comme destination des vacances du Chinese New year (qu'ils connaissent deja un peu), par soucis de facilite parce qu'ils ont en tete de faire decouvrir le backpack aux enfants... et la Thailande c'est facile. A moins qu'ils ne veulent decouvrir le backpack avec enfants. Saisissez la nuance. Ils prennent un vol sec pour Bangkok. L'aventure...
