Where I stayed
Bang Bao Remark Puzi - beach huts
We were staying in Bang Bao - a small development on Koh Chang, with a street and pier of shops and little shack like restaurants. On the first day we wondered along the bays and found hidden idyllic beaches - white sand, mango shakes and turquoise waters with scorching sun - lush. Jk walked me, a lot, and then we relaxed back at our huts in the adjoining his and hers hammocks before prepping for New Year. Our last sunset of 2011 was spent on a rock side, eating a freshly cut watermelon, looking out to sea.
New Year's day, we woke to what appeared to be the Hangover part three. Parched, with no expensive camera, blurry-eyed, I had someone else's shoes and jk didn't have any... what had happened? We tried to ignore the impending insurance claim and panic of 'we've been robbed', by sleeping in till 1pm. By which point we dragged ourselves up, only to find the camera hidden in my bag, in my slightly tipsy way (if I hide it, no one will nick it). The camera allowed us to verify that the night had gone as we imagined and not taken a turn for the worse. We hit Lonely Beach and went to several lovely bars, with live music and good food - Jk ordered his, promptly tipped it all over himself and ordered another. We saw the New Year in with some lovely Swedes (we can't remember their names), on the beach front with fireworks popping over the bay.
Happy New Year - we I hope it's happy for all of you xxx
