After some time in Bangkok we took a night bus (long ride and lots of waiting at the pier from 2am to 6am...) towards the south of Thailand to eventually reach Kho Tao, a wonderful island near Koh Samui. Apparently Kho Tao is heaven for divers. We didn't dive but we sure enjoyed the scenery, the sunsets, the clear water, the food and the quiet beaches in the early morning. Kho Tao is extremely picturesque because of the big stones that can be found everywhere on the beach or inland in the forest. Kho Tao is quite touristy so it's not easy to find the perfect bungalow on the perfect beach and accommodation and food are slightly more expensive than on Kho Phangan but it's definitely worth a stop for a few days or a week. The best is to get up early, rent a motorbike and ride around the island looking for the perfect creek, a secluded beach... or the perfect banana shake! I love Thailand! I love my life! Bises a tous! I hope you enjoy the pictures!
I am a 36-year old language teacher, currently working in Beijing. I was born in France but China has been my home for many years. I taught French and English in Fuzhou, Fujian Province, for 6 years.
