Then he ran and hid behind his mother's leg, giggling at himself (or us) No one seemed to object to us walking around so we did.

Having said that, we cannot wait for Part 2, a fortnight spent roaming the once rustic now prosperous islands and blonde beaches of Ko Samui, Ko Phangnan, Ko Tao, Ko Phi Phi and Ko Up The Beers (made that last one up).
