Finally we have made it to the islands and wow, it was very eventful to get here! We decided to get the night bus from Hua Hin to the ferry port which after being two hours late the bus finally arrived and for the next six hours throughout the night (where we thought we would be able to get off to sleep) was a bumpy journey to the ferry port. Once …
... eventually handed us a phone with someone on the end who spoke very little English. It didn't look like anyone else was staying here and we could see just how far away we were from a beach and probably any main road! We surprisingly declined the rooms as the money we'd lose we'd have to spend on taxis every day getting any where! Fortunately the owner gave us a lift (costly of course) to Haad rin the touristy area! So close to the full moon party, the good ...

Ci fermiamo facilmente a Koh Tao per altri 16 giorni spesi a fare tai boxe e girare l’isola in cerca di posti per fare snorkeling…
Il prossimo stop sara’ l’isola di Koh Phangan per il famoso full moon party!
I was very apprehensive about doing the 3 day detox and doing yoga 2 times a day. I was not sure if my body could cope. However this trip was about starting fresh and the detox was a great way to start. To prepare for the detox we had two days of eating raw food, this was ********* me then not eating. All the cabbage caused severe bloating in me and made me very uncomfortable. Also there was not much variety in the raw food menu and this really ...
We boated across to Koh Phangan, Thailand's infamous party island. Underestimating the size of the island, we got a taxi ride half an hour away to our hotel, far from the party center. Oh well. We're here only for the big party so it doesn't matter too much. The island is hugely mountainous, some of the roads feel more like roller coasters with sheer drops and steep inclines.

Asia Divers was our third hotel/bungalow stay in Koh Tao, although our room was basic it was far the best we stayed in during our time on this island.
The hotel was situated in probably the livest part of Koh Tao and we were pleased about that as the past 5 days we were far away from the main roads and although it was beautiful but it was now nice to people watch, walk around shops, walk to the beach and go to different restaurants.
We booked into Asia Diving Resort for four nights but ended up adding another three nights there as it was really enjoyable and Robyn decided to do a diving course with the hotels diving instructors at Asia Divers!
Asia Divers was the perfect training I could of needed in order to complete the course! Unfortunately Aaron doesn't like underwater so couldn't experience it together, however he came out on the boat and we both had a great 3 days throughout the course!
