We moved to this hotel from the Hong Ping and what sold it was the amazing view from the room on the 16th floor. The hotel was nice and of a similar standard to a 3 star hotel at home (UK) The service however was bad, staff were very ignorant and in no way wanted to help with anything! Also the rooms have WIFI at a shocking charge of 15RM per 24 hours (about £3) It's free in the lobby, although logs you out about every 5 mins...PAIN!

... the sand. On the way back we had some corn off as street seller. It was delicious. We jumped back on the bus to Batu Ferrenghi and went to the beach closest to us. This beach is just used for water sports. We walked along then walked back towards our place. On the way back some Chinese/Malay kids where working together on their youth group project and did a fake interview with me an noel about the weather. It was hilarious. They even put on ...

... This goes for shoes too, Kirsty had spotted a couple that she liked but they didn't have them in her size, which aren't exactly large by UK standards. They only had one pair in the whole shop in her size!
We gave up after a while, even though the shops offered a cooling respite from the heat outside.
We found a place to to have dinner in Little India, a temporary oasis from the heat, from the noise and from the hustle and ...
... a high rating with Trip Advisor and I can highly recommend it . We have had some wonderful evenings there when visiting muso's have strutted their style. There is to be a music evening this Friday so I am sure we will be there. We talked the evening away with Jane and Rob,they are from Western Australia and spend 6 months here each year,they have purchased an apartment at Miami Green. They informed us of a fantastic wine shop where you can purchase good quality wines at ...
... Koh Samui, we took a boat to Koh Tao. We started looking for cheap accommodation on the spot, only to figure out that that was not going to happen (oh noohhh, all fuuuulll) and our choice was to either sleep in a bunch of stacked containers in the favela's (yes, figure of speech of course) or a resort. The resort won. But this part of Koh Tao was packed with drunk, pumped up, spring break Australians and we decided to relocate to a more secluded part of ...
