... on the island your hotel is then just let them know. If you get there before 6pm I believe the price is 50 baht (at least that is what I paid to return on the main ferry). The private boat taxi waited till there was a minimum 10 people to make the trip. So I waited about 45 minutes. The boat was very fast and I was on the island in 15 minutes. The regular ferry is about 45 minutes.

The bus arrived in Surat Thani a few hours later where we decided to brave a local orange bus. It was absolutely packed beyond belief and by the looks of things we were the only non locals on board. It was too full for the doors to close and Nick hung on for his life for the first ...
... Unfortunately they don't make dog repellent and there were a lot of stray dogs that live on the beach which isn't really my thing. Particularly as we seemed to have coincided our trip with mating season and the female doggy just loved to hide from the other dogs underneath my sun bed!!!
Anyway, we had a lovely quiet week of sunbathing and swimming. I was still on anti-biotics for the first half of the week so we stuck to the banana shakes until ...
