While in Koh Phagnan, we thought about heading to Koh Tao - an island consistently described as 'laid back' and also a mecca of sorts for divers. Since we don't dive, and found Koh Phagnan to be a bit too laid back, we decide instead to head back to Koh Samui. We booked a room in Cheweng Beach this time.

... of funny and nice but it was lovely to receive something on Christmas Day. Only a couple of the shops and bars had had Christmas decorations up in the past week and in fact the locals almost treated it as a fancy dress opportunity - a lady with her two small children passed me on a moped on their way to school....all dressed in Santa outfits!
