After Ko Lanta we decided to go to Ko Samui, which would give us the option of hopping islands to Ko Phangan for the full moon party if we decided to later on. Getting to Samui wasn't too bad but did take a while. 7am departure from our lodge in Lanta, A/C minibus to Krabi, then a big bus to Surat Thani, followed by a ferry to Ko Samui. All in all it took 10 hours but it wasn't too bad.

Once we arrived we decided to head to the famous beach at Chaweng. We found a guesthouse pretty easily and settled in.

Ko Samui was the most westernized place we have visited so far (outside of Bangkok) and very heavily touristed, but neither C or I minded since we had been in the seclusion of Ko Lanta for the last week. The beach at Chaweng was great, we even woke up at 6am one morning to catch a really amazing sunrise. We did alot of walking around Chaweng browsing through stores for cheap buys, and rented a sea-doo as well which was really fun. I also managed to flip us both of the sea-doo into the ocean, which is fairly impressive. The restaurants right on the sand at the beach were also great and we had a few meals at night sitting metres away from the waves rolling in, enjoying random fireworks displays, etc.

We decided after a few days to move on to Ko Phangan and see if we liked it and whether we would stay for the world famous full moon party.
