The holiday begins - yeah.
We caught the 11am ferry over to Samui and had paid an extra 200 baht to be transferred to our hotel. On our minibus transfer there was another couple and the driver asked them where they were staying - The Library. This is a famous, minimalist hotel that has a red swimming pool. …
