Right on the beach with an powerful A/C for the hot and humid nights. But its best feature is the large windows overlooking the beach which ensures that you don't get up on the wrong side of the bed each day.
When it comes to blogging, much like law school, I've fallen behind after the first week. So instead of futilely trying to catch up, I'll try to put up picture intensive, less wordy entries more frequently. I think it would be more enjoyable.
Last off I left you at Bangkok. I flew to Ko Samui on the 10th and stayed there until May 15 when I went over to Krabi to catch a cheaper flight to S'pore.
Ko Samui is a sleepy island in the Gulf of Thailand. It is the most developed of all islands in that region. Even then, once you get past Chaweng beach (which is the most develeoped), you don't really see any high rises or resorts. It much more peaceful and less crowded than any of the other beaches I have been to (Virgina, Goldcoast, Varedero, LA, etc. ) Mind you that I went there during the low season which might have something to do with it the lack of crowds. I know it is not really off the beaten track, and most of the activities are touristy, nevertheless, I had a great time there. Enjoy the pictures.
