    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!

    ... up of Soya sauce and sugar, maybe some mayonnaise as well? There was also a sort of a root type veggie which was prepared with coconut milk all mashed up, and of course, what would ribs be without chips. Man, was this good or what.

    We decided to watch a movie and selected Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. On the face of it the movie looks great. The storyline from IMDb reads “In the bleak days of the Cold War, espionage veteran George Smiley is forced from ...

    ... somehow made in into our luggage, totally forgotten by me, remembered by Adri. Never thought for a moment I’d ever eat biltong in Thailand. Anyway, the wifi was playing up, very frustrating, so I rather carried on reading, there was no point in trying to get things working if the network was this erratic.

    Adri started supper which would eventually turn into a delightful penne bolognaise. We bought decent looking beef mince at Makro, fresh and lean, reminds ...

    ... with. It was a great day too, weather was beautiful and the drinks were flowing. Sunday fun day was perfect for day drinking rum cocktails and vodka shakes around the pool. It was great to speak to people with their travel stories and to share ours too, even though Will wasn't there. The pool party was in full flow now and everyone was having a great time. The time pasted so quickly so before we knew it, it had passed lunch and onto dinner. We all went to get ready and head out ...

    ... well at least we knew it would be quiet. The room was decent and we had a pool (no hard rock I might add). We dumped our bags and went straight to the bar/restaurant area for some food. We didn't too much after dinner as you can imagine. Our aim was to wake up early and make most of the day as we went to bed early. However, this did not happen as we woke up at 10. The travelling must of took more out of us than we thought. With this in mind we decided to head to ...

    ... major. As we got to Samui, Oat picked us up at the pier and brought us around the island for 4h. First stop, nathon. This was the old main city of Samui. We visited the market. We then went for lunch near one of the best places to see the sun set on Samui (unfortunately it was mid day ;-p). Next we went to namuang where we saw elephants and waterfalls. One of the elephants had ...
