Sunday was our last day down in the islands and we spent it exactly the same way as the day before. We woke up and went to the beach, rented sunbeds with umbrellas, went for a morning snorkel, read our books, had lunch and then went for an afternoon snorkel. Again, the snorkeling was great - we saw many large schools of fish, lots of different pufferfish, a fish that we had never seen before (about an inch long, black with large white spots and fluttery fins) and a bunch of our favourites. It was the perfect last day in the islands, which the exception of one of the fish biting Jeff! Who knew that fish bite snorkelers. The wrasse fish (about 10 cm in length and bright green, blue and pink) were swimming along with Jeff and all of a sudden he yelled that one bit him. He had two marks the size of pencil erasers on his thigh!

On Monday, we flew back to Bangkok as we were flying on Tuesday to Vietnam. Checking in was a breeze (I think it took us less than 10 minutes to check in and go through security) and the flight was painless. We met our hotel shuttle and arrived at the hotel. Turns out it wasn't the hotel that we had expected. Back in January, we had stayed at the Convenient Resort when we arrived in Bangkok, but it turns out that we stayed at the Convenient Grand. This hotel was a bit sketchy and I was a bit annoyed with myself. Jeff found the situation hilarious and laughed for a good amount of time.

So it wasn't just us! :)

Remember when we met up I said that the place Jeff reccomended was a lot sketchier than your picture from January seemed?

Did you arrive at night and have the ominous drive to the hotel?

Jeff on

The drive the first time was actually sketchier and longer. This time we were thinking oh this driver knows a shortcut. Then when we drove up we were like are we coming in at the back of the hotel. Funny thing was another couple actually came to the wrong hotel when they were supposed to be at the other one we stayed at the first time. Dana wanted to go with them.
