Yet another day and another amazing change of scenery and this time a slow life...
A 5.30am start saw us leave our jungle retreat in the pitch black and after 2 1/2 hour by truck, breakfast in Surat Thani, then a 2 hour coach journey (most people asleep) and finally a 2 1/2 hour ferry (furry as Chai calls it). Ferrys will always be referred to as furrys in the future we finally arrived on yet another scene...
White sandy beaches, palm trees and party !!!
Yet another hotel, this time with hot showers (YES !!!) and a poolside with palm trees, cocktails sun, this is a different life to the last 15 days..
After an afternoon sitting around the pool living like kings and soaking in the sun, Chai had us once again off on an early evening walk along the beach, with warm sea on our toes and roasting sand with a narrow beach with palm trees and the odd seller (of course) and small beach huts this is what you imagine as the truly seaside resort we ambled along for around 3/4 hour before coming accross some rock formations ! Mmmm... (to be described later to friends)
A quick walk down the local high street saw us back to the hotel and then all sprussed up in our finery (my god the lasses actually look normal again with makeup and dresses !) we hit the party scene
A 1/2 taxi drive (16 in one bus !) saw us on the beach on low tables next to the setting sun with a live disco (actually on stilts in the water) fire juggling acts, beach booze and party..
Afterways a caberet show with ladyboys and whilst the older ones of the party retired back to the hotel the younger ones (no not Helen) stayed out drinking and dancing until the early morning)
A totally different part to the holiday
