      This was our first hotel in Koh Samui and we were based just outside the lively part of Koh Samui, in Chaweng.

      The hotel was actually much nicer than we expected it to be and our room was really modern and quite spacious. Our hotel had it's own private beach........

      We were only a ten minute walk into the main street in Chaweng which was probably the most westernise area we had been to in a long time and was the party area in Koh Samui but also had many other shops including massage parlours, shops selling fake clothing, perfumes and watches, suit shops, McDonalds, Burger King and everything else you can imagine!

      We were glad we were staying in the quieter area of Chaweng as we were close to everything that we needed and the hotel was prefect for us!

      Well, we have reached our last stop on the east side of Thailand and our time on the three islands have gone very quickly! Our last island is Koh Samui and is the bigger island out of the three. After probably the smoothest and quickest ferry journey we have had so far, our first destination in Samui was Chaweng which is the lively part of the …

      ... I suppose. I settled in at the bar and in honour of meeting people from Nakuru, had a Singapore Sling and some spring rolls. This is the drink that reminds me of Beth, and Nakuru definitely reminds me of her! The strongest drink of all time, I almost couldn't finish it, but at the prices at this resort I was definitely going to do my best! After chatting with a guy staying at the hotel at the bar for quite some time, he assured me I could go on ...

Elles wanted to shop. I won and the tour begun. First we went to see some rocks named Grandpa and grandma. I'll include a pic so you can imagine where the got those names. Weird formation. More amusing are people to assume positions for ...
