... pure luxury! Mum and i had a few massages and the others spent a lot of time in MBK shopping centre. One evening we went to Asiatique which is a really nice shopping complex with restaurants by the river.

We arrived on Koh Mak around 11am on Wednesday by speedboat which took about 1 hr from Koh Chang.

First day was spent touring the island with Ball, our tour guide for the day and for 350baht each we saw the museum, temple, school and all the view points.
