Koh Samui was next on our list of places to get to. We not only had to get to our next hotel which we had a reservation, but we also had to meet up with Kevin Dale and Jamie Grzbubowski? Ghzerbowski? Gerbowski?
As I had mentioned in the Koh Phi Phi blog, we got the opportunity to stay at a great spa resort in great little a-frame bungalows and air-con!
This is also where Kevin and Jamie were staying. It was great to hang out with them and share a few drinks and just relax for a few days. While on Koh Samui we caught a Muay Thai fight,
checked out Chewang Beach,
and then sadly had to say good-bye to mom/pat. It was sad to see her go after traveling with her for a few weeks; we had some great times and shared some great experiences. Love you Mom/Pat!
After the 4 nights on Samui with Mom/Pat, Jamie, Kevin and his family, we were off to Koh Phangan for the famous Full Moon Party! We had to book in advance a place to stay because Koh Phangan gets about 10 000 people arriving in the few days prior the party. We ended up waiting to long to book and we were only able to secure accommodations on the opposite side of the island in a mid-range hotel. No worries though, we can take a cab there and back from the party so we don’t need to worry about transportation.
The hotel we have is like I mentioned mid-range. So it is a bit nicer than most of the places we have stayed at thus far. The rooms are spacious, clean, and come equipped with fridge, a/c, and satellite TV. The view from our room is just as nice, it overlooks Haad Salad, the beach area where we are. Our room is perched up on a hill so it’s a bit of a steep climb to get to the room but once you are there it is well worth the hike.
So as I write this we are getting ourselves prepared for the Full Moon party tonight. We are going to arrive fairly late, probably around 10 or 11 pm and try and make it to the sunset. We promise everyone that we will be super-careful tonight, we are on the buddy system all night!
