Managed to share a Songthaew taxi from my hotel with a bunch of people from Sydney. As we got dropped off I spotted Liz from my Northern tour and the rest of the guys - what are the chances! We got some fluro-paintwork (me two flowers on my arm) and headed in. It's essentially a strip of beach with rows of bars and different music. Spent most of the night dancing and talking to people. It was daylight when I got back - feeling pretty tired right now.. Just had to check out of my room and have a couple of hours before my ferry to Ko Tao.
Ko Phangan has been a good few days, would highly recommend the Sabai Beach - one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. Hosteling it for the rest of the week.
My ferry was not the nicest hour of travel - they put me on the top deck which I originally thought was great - I'd have a good view and fresh air.. No. Instead I got a load of sea water in my face and got sat by a bunch of rowdy Thai guys who reeked of alcohol and cigarettes and wouldn't shut up! Then a girl started being sick over the side of the boat right next to me. Not what you need after a night out..
Ko Tao is beautiful. Much less commercial than the other islands . Had a little look around before crashing out for the past few hours. Hostel is very basic but ok, only here for one night so it'll do. Sharing with 7 others - all a bit younger but seem ok. Going to have a little wander and then an early one - want to be on form for diving tomorrow!
