Damn fine stay, decent value at GBP35 for room and brekkie, friendly staff, very nice rooms, although on a small steep hill. Good location for Kata yai and Noi beaches and out of the way of the razzamataz.

The longest zip line was 400m long, with speeds apparently up to 60km/hr as you hung, spun and flew narrowly missing the tree ...

However, by this point (I forgot to mention) we had moved hostels! Caitlin told us about these beach huts right by the sea that were only £8 a night very basic but great location. So we moved all of our stuff and headed to the huts. Obviously me Lauren and Caitlin were given the hut at the back on looking the public toilets where ...
... country that you are travelling in. My Thai SIM card cost $1.50 and it was great for keeping in touch with people I met along the way. Talk to your bank before you leave the country. I had a bit of a sticky situation where I called the bank and told them I would be overseas for x amount of time and that I wouldn't have access to my mobile phone number. When I was overseas and wanted to transfer money onto my travel accounts, I was prompted to enter my SMS code that was sent to ...
