Travel Blogs from Ko Chang
So we're melting.
It's 30-something degrees by 10am every day, and what we've learned is that air con is both our best friend and worst enemy. If you use it, instant gratification and suddenly you are no longer a sweaty mess. But then you go outside and it's back to square one (if you'd been tough and stuck it out, maybe by now you'd have …

Loooong overland trip
I knew the trip here was going to be a tough one because I wanted to try and avoid flying, one because I hate flying and airports and security checks, two because of the environment. I was expecting it to take two or three days, so in hindsight 28 hours of travelling + waiting was not so bad. < …

The only downside is that the bars nearby have loud party nights, so bring ear plugs.
