A few Days In Thailand


During my travels to Hong Kong, myself and Tommy booked a 4 day break to Koh Samui, Thailand. Having previously been to Phuket, I was advised to visit Koh Samui for a more quite, relaxing and luxurious experience. We chose to stay at The Melati which was a quiet hotel, with it's own beach, obviously being located at the edge of the sea, it was a short car ride to the centre were everything was. We spent our first couple of days relaxing by the pool, exploring the town and seeing what Chaweng had to offer. Streets were adorned with neon's, tourists were everywhere and the atmosphere was something I won't forget. The 3rd day was the most exhausting day, we booked an excursion. A day out in a 4X4 truck, visiting all the islands top spots like elephant trekking, temples, mountains, waterfalls, and so on. This took an entire 9hrs and not only did I enjoy it, it taught me something in life, to appreciate everything I have. Squatting in public roadside toilets whilst lizards ran around the walls, watching children run around bare foot and children working on the streets for money. This was more than a holiday, it was a lesson in life. The final day was spent chilling on the beach, by the pool and er yeh, in the lobby, we were trying to kill time until it was time to go to the airport.  I must mention too, Koh Samui airport is incredible! Made of bamboo and small boutique style shops, it was almost as if I had stepped into Bicester Village! I must also add that the service at The Melati was superb, the best we have ever experienced. Polite, attentive, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the island. 

Gah, how I wish London had this type of weather!
