    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 another week and we're still on Samui! Since the last update we have ventured out to the fishermans village (North of the island) for a spot of night market shopping and more street food were we nearly tried eating crocodile!

    Deciding we might want to spend Christmas Day in luxury we spent a couple of days on the bike stopping off at every resort we saw. Having found what can only be described as ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... showed. The culture of the western economy in all it's glory. Diary Queen, Starbucks, all leading brands in a mall after American model. The guide was proud of it. I wanted to get out. 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 ...

    ... next blog now will be from San Francisco. There's not a lot to report about the island itself, apart from its complete difference to the Thailand we know. It's a lot like Greece or Spain, but with Thai staff. So we plan on beach holiday'ing it for the next 4 days until we leave, with an overnight train back up to Bangkok, one night there and then flight on Sunday so a straight forward week for us. Hope you're all well, D & L
