My stay at Patong Lodge Hotel was horrific! I hated it so much!! Oh my goddd!! The staff we so awfully RUDE, the only one who had a genuine smile was the dude at the front on concierge, Abdul.
When i lost my phone, help wasn't on their agenda, they just wanted to get rid of me as quick as possible. When i asked basic question, they speak in Thai, and i'm thinking really, do you think i understand! Facilities were ok-ish. Room's were bareable. Breakfast was standard.
When asked ow long it would take to et to Koh Samui, staff reasured me it would take around 5 hours, which i knew was rubbish after all the research i did!! OH I HATE IT!!
I feel for people who have to go and stay there!!

... the traffic - there seems to be no rules on the road, you can meet cars and people and particularly bikes coming towards you on your side of the road. In Thailand and Singapore, they drive on the left side of the road, same as Australia. Trent was rather anxious riding our bikes through the city streets, but I felt strangely safe and put my trust in David's bike riding skills.

... pick up the passport and make the long drive back. Simple enough, until you realize that the driver speaks only rudimentary English and can’t answer any questions. It’s Thailand so you expect some communication problems, but this was just ridiculous. The Thai government changes visa regulations all the time, so many were complaining that we had to go in person to the embassy, but the poor driver ...

Education - The education centre was not as hands on obviously and the day was usually much less strenuous – most people didn’t like being on it but despite not being able to work alongside the animals, I still enjoyed it as it involved talking to lots of people about what the GRP gets up to – as I’ve outlined before with my standard speech in my previous entry! We are also ...
