We managed to jump on the ferry and after a couple of hours we arrived in Krabi. This place didn't look too great so pleased we were not hanging around. We got a taxi to the coach and jumped on. Because of Charlie's leg getting up the coach steep stairs was next to impossible so the guy said to go through the door on the left which was like VIP! We had couches and was it was spacious and clean. After travelling for a few weeks this was like heaven! There were two other girls sitting down already and it wasn't long before we started chatting and sharing stories. One of the girls was just on holiday but the other one was also travelling and had a years working visa too. We took her name and said we would add her on Facebook and meet up in oz. Facebook has been a gem whilst we have been travelling because no one really has phones which work or have credit on and most hotels and bars provide free wi fi so its a great way to keep in touch with everyone we have met along the way.

So after travelling all day and after two boats, two coaches and two taxis we finally make it to Koh Samui.

We arrived with no accommodation organised so we asked a couple of travellers who mumbled something and walked off... Charming! We only wanted to know where the main strip was!

Anyway we had some lil Thai lady rambling on and on and following us about so decided to listen to her and ask her what deals she could offer us. We found out Cheweng was the livest part of Koh samui so decided to head there. She said she would show us accommodation for £5
A night per room with air con and hot water so we decided to check it out.

The journey to Cheweng is one i shall never forget. She is a crazy driver, speeding and overtaking on bends! I did a few times fear for my life!

Anyway we arrived at the hotel which was tucked away down some side road which didn't look too appealing but when we went in and checked the room out it was nice so decided to stay. We gave the boys the location and name of the hotel for when they arrive the next day.

After not having a chance to eat much we decided to grab some food. After some of the food we had eaten in Phi Phi all we wanted was some nice grub! We found this lil restaurant which looked nice so decides to eat there. Both fancying pasta we chose a pasta dish each and some garlic bread. The food was actually really nice and for £6 for drinks and a two course meal
It wasn't a bad price either.

We had a little look around and checked out the market, we brought a couple more bracelets and then grabbed a lift from the sweetest receptionist at our hotel into the main nightlife.

We had a drink laying on the beach in the Ark bar and chilled out. Drink prices seemed much more expensive than other other places we have been but then clothes and other buts seem much cheaper.

After travelling all day we decided to call it a night and headed back to the hotel.

The second day we had a lil walk Around and decided to get out nails and eyelashes down. We were the only people in the shop so felt like a celeb. They did a good job even if putting eyelash extensions on was a eye watering experience. After over 2 hours in the shop we headed back to the hotel to be reunited with the boys. They had made it.

We went and got changed and headed out. We headed to the irish bar and started chatting to two guys. One of them had a massive bandage on his forehead. We soon discovered he dived into the pool which was shallow and smashed his head! Not good!

Anyway we had a couple of drinks and then met up with the irish boys.

We walked up the strip and then went down
To what would soon be known to us as sleeze alley and had a drink in a small Irish bar where buckets were only 140bart!

Koh Samui isn't as busy as Phi Phi and is far bigger. also after around 2am the police would turn up and the bars would have to close. We managed to find a few bars that was still open but the nightlife and all the madness that comes with it just didn't compare to Phi Phi.

We all went to some bar and this girl was absolutely off her face and couldn't even hold her head up. Everyone around her acted like this was acceptable even the men trying to grope her! Alan managed to get her friends to take her home in a taxi.

With the weather not being that great (still humid and hot) we all decided to play football golf. charlie obviously couldn't play so I played against the boys. What should have took a hour or so took three hours due to the boys being so competitive and constantly arguing about the rules. I started off quite well but after a hour started to get bored and with an a aching foot just gave up ans started booting the ball
Anywhere! I don't think Scuzz aka Alan as we called him should ever play any kind of sports. Ive never seen a guy spit his dummy out so many times in 3 hours if he didn't get the ball in the hole within the first few goes. He spent more time looking for his ball after booting it in anger than he did playing and having fun! Watching him was pure entertainment especially since the boys knew how to wind him up.

We went to the small irish bar most nights whilst in Koh Samui and there was this girl called Pupp who worked behind the bar. She was bloody awesome and would get her self hammered whilst working. Every shot we got she got one for us! Another girl we met was a hooker but a bloody funny one! She had Charlie and I in stitches! Hanging around with hookers and lady boys is completely normal in Thailand. The owner of the bar was a lovey guy and would always come over and chat to us.

Waking up to some actual sunshine on our last day we decided to check out the beach. We got about 10 mins in but that was our own fault for bit getting up until late.

With the full moon party being around the corner we were all excited to head on to Koh Phangan!
