The laid back beach shack vibe of this place is very appealing to me. There is no big shiny restaurant and no giant pool with a bar in it. Just simple, comfortable accommodation in a relaxed garden setting deceptively close to the beach. It's a wonderful little hotel which has perfected itself over its 20 year existence.

... the tetchy response at breakfast! Jamie had found staff lying haphazardly around the train on any available flat surface when he had ventured out for an early cuppa. Aware that our train stopped at our destination Suratthani at 8am we started to pack up, thinking that, that was the trains final destination we were in no hurry. It was then brought to our attention that it was not the final stop, so it was a mad rush to get everything hastily together and flung off before it moved on. ...
... thrown, and I think it's hilarious when I walk last the loo to hear Nath playing games on his phone- even worse when he cheers (the game....... I assume) but I don't think it's acceptable to take your time in a restaurant toilet, that's not a place to loiter and catch up with the latest world events.

Then, our moment came. During the surface time in between dives, our instructor nonchalantly mentioned that there was a whale shark in the water! Within minutes we were swimming furiously in the direction he’d pointed. We swam and swam, surging up and down in the huge waves, taking in water… and saw nothing. We tried so hard but we’d obviously gone in the wrong direction, or too far, or come too late, because there was nothing.
... Standing on a dirt path trying to hold your place can be exhausting. Another bus rocked up. One man stood there with his little book of tickets and pouch of stickers, whilst a mob of tourists flocked round him trying to grab both. You see you had to give him your ticket, and then he would give you back a different ticket and of course a sticker. You had to have these things before you got on the bus. And there was one man to about 200 of us. Sweaty chaos. Amy got right to ...
... planning the next leg of my trip. On Wednesday, I will be going to Ko Tao to learn how to dive. I can't say I've always wanted to dive, but as they say "when in Rome". Chaweng Beach is like Wasaga Beach on steroids. There was a strip of shops, many, many shops set back from the beach on the closest road. The resorts and stores are so built up in this area you can't see the beach and it took me awhile to find the alley ...
