Sigh Tong Beach was recomended by my two german friends because they had stayed a whole week there and fell in love with it. When I saw their pictures I knew I had to see it too. So on my way back to Bangkok from Koh Samui I stopped over for 6 hours on the little island of Koh Tao (Turtle Island). The island is called turtle island because It is shaped like a turtle not because there are turtles there. From Talking to many people about the beauty of this island, I found out that it used to be a prison for all the naughty Thais to go
Imagine you were telling everyone about chocolate because no one had ever tasted it. How could you describe it's taste? or how it feels when it melts in your hand and you quickly gobble it down in the desparate attempt of not waisting a single drop? Now imagine everyone said, "oh well it cost too much money." "I am too old or too young. Too rich or too poor." since when has chocolate ever yeilded to poverty, or wealth. I know that back when the Spanish monks first introduced it, only the royalty could aford it, but come on that was back in the 16th century. Nowadays World traveling, just like chocolate, is for all ages, and social economic static. No longer are the rich the only ones spending summers in Europe and taking trips half way around the world. Europe is so the exotic place of the past. Come to Thailand and experience pure serenity and bliss. Imagine your self in these pictures. These exotic far off places really exsist and I am a living proof that anyone can come here. How about this just say, "no more excusses, I will go". Sacrifice what you have to, because trust me It was worth a life time of suffering and pain, just to be on that beach for 5 hours. Just pick a date and come.
See you when you get here.
