Hello! We have now arrived in Krabi/Ao Nang but I'll tell you about the last few days in Koh Samui first! On the second to last day in Koh Samui we decided to book a small tour around the island for the day. So far we preferred Bangkok and Koh tao to koh samui, but we were hoping that seeing the rest of the island would change our mind. The trip started off at a place with a Hindu statue, Buddhist statue and a Chinese statue. The Hindu statue had huge dog poos all around it so ...
... our first experience on the iconic boat and I absolutely loved it! Railay was beautiful and like most beautiful places in Thiland highly westonised. Resorts that we had no hope in hell affording stretched the length of the beach. We didn't waste any time and went strait to one of the meny stunning beaches. We walked took in the surroundings and climbed around on the rocks trying to get a better view. This wasn't hugely successful and we knew that there was an epic view point and ...
... Talin Chan station should not be confused with the old one. At a haggled 350 baht for our tuktuk we were still ripped off.

We ruined ourselves with KFC, our first western food since arriving (boredom will do that). The first to make me ...
So we moved on from relaxing on koh lanta to the crazy party island of ko phi phi. We'd been warned that it was expensive for accomadtion but we still thought we'd find something in our budget. We didn't. But we found the cheapest room we could which was actually pretty nice and clean so we didn't mind too much since we were only going to be here for 2 nights.
We wandered around town for a bit and conveniently bumped into Will and Dixie, 2 of the Scottish (and Irish) guys we'd met ...
Being a bit more expensive and nearing the end of our Thai visa, we
only booked two nights. But wow, what a great two nights to end
Thailand with. Soft sandy beaches, great snorkelling (so many Nemos,
puffer fish and a purple starfish) and a generally nice vibe, it was
definitely worth its recommendation.
ferry ride (or rather a fast but very harsh and bumpy speed boat)
awaited the next day for our next stop...Langkawi Island, Malaysia!
