West Coast Islands To put it in short we LOVED the west coast islands. We didn't even plan on visiting the western side because its the monsoon season and prone to days and days of rain. Along our way a couple we met told us that they had just come from the west side and only ran into rain for one day......... we figured it was worth a shot and headed out. Too bad we didnt plan to visit the west coast from the beginning and spend more time..... I think we only did 6 days between Phi Phi and Phuket and we could have spent weeks more jumping to other islands. Phi Phi Island Phi Phi was my favorite of the two islands hands down! The island had one dock for incoming ships and ... read more

East Coast Islands We started our trip on the eastern islands of Koh Tao, Ko Phangon and Ko Samui..... not a bad way to start the island/beach circuit and some nice surf and sun.

We took a taxi from the dock and kinda round-a-boutly ended up at a very nice small resort right on the beach for about $25 a night. The place was quiet enough and every night they turned the beach in front of the place into a little relaxing bar with torches and the sunset and a dj spinning mellow music........... I think our location really helped make this island for ... read more

I transferred the text from those previous posts here but I lack the patience and the intestinal fortitude to wade through and post the photo's again. For the original Japan and Vietnam postings with photos cut and paste this url in the address bar: http://www.travelpod.com/members/gred78 Vietnam Hanoi Hanoi is a bit of sensory overload and it took a minute to get a hang of things, my first impression wasnt all that great, but it grew on me somewhat and helped me learn a few Vietnam survival skills for the rest of the trek south, first.......... the hotel. The hotel After being picked up from the airport we maneuvered through the city streets to the glorious "Win Hotel". ... read more

I remember (and my mother loves to remind me) being in grade school and being livid that she would not let me go to Africa on safari......... I knew I could ... read more
