Ken and Clara surprised us at our resort in Ko Phangan before the Full Moon party. It was really nice to see them and arrange how we were getting to the party and all the details. We took a truck to Had Rin Beach where the Full Moon party took place. It was definitely an experience. There were two beaches that you could party on either the sunset or sunrise beach. We chose the sunrise beach. We arrived at 11:00 pm and there were probably 10 - 20 thousand people packed on the beach.
It was overwhelming at first but once we got our body paint on and our glow-stick glasses we were ready for the night.
We took a taxi back to our resort at 6:00am just in time for our free breakfast that Cookies Resort had ready for us. It was a great night and it was great to party with Kevin, Jamie, Ken and Clara.
On April 1st we left Cookies Resort and headed to Khao Sok where we stayed at the Rainforest Bungalows for one night. The bungalows that we stayed in had great views but the inside was nothing special.
The next morning we walked down the street to Smiley Bungalows were we stayed one night.
The bungalows at Smiley Bungalows was much nicer and the view was great as well, we had no complaints.
While we were at Smiley Bungalows we went tubing down the river. It was fun but we wished there was more water so we would've went faster. Supposedly November is the best time to go tubing because it's just after the rainy season and there's enough water to go fast and not dangerous. During the rainy season, the water level is really high and tubing is really dangerous. It was neat to float down the river and see mountains and jungle surrounding you.
Yesterday (April 3rd) we took a flight back to Bangkok. Kevin and Jamie are venturing off to Cambodia and we aren't for sure on what we are doing. We are either going back up north to visit some places that we didn't get to see before or we might go to Cambodia as well.
It was great traveling with Kevin and Jamie and we will miss having their company and jokes. Hopefully we can meet up with them again before they have to go home! We wish them safe travels to Cambodia!
