Travel Blogs from Surat Thani
I have just returned from my fall break and after two days of class on Friday and Saturday after break, I am finally getting around to updating the blog. If the Internet cooperates, this blog post may also have a picture or two.
I did not realize how much I was in need of break until break began on November 7th. Although studying abroad …
... was scheduled for noon, it was a lazy morning excepting for getting fitted with my dive gear which took less than 20 mins. No sooner as one truck came back with divers from the morning trip we were loaded and ready to go in the same truck and heading off the pier. Apparently there was a last minute change as to who I was diving with (though I didn’t even know who I would be diving with in the first place) and was quickly introduced to David in the back ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
I recently stayed at the Green Valley Resort with three other friends while traveling to the South of Thailand. I would HIGHLY recommend Green Valley.
The rooms were clean and the service was fantastic. When we got there, even though we arrived after 9, the kitchen offered to cook dinner for us. Additionally, breakfast each morning was both free and very good.
The hotel is only a short walk from the national park and is close to one of the best places to eat in Khao Sok (Pawn's). I highly recommend it and this place is sure to not disappoint!
