The islands in Thailand are known for their pure sands and blue sea and normally Sun! We have been blessed with rain so far on our beach days but it hasn't stopped us! My new group is as awesome as the last and we are making the most of every second, it's a few people last few weeks like mine . We have been true Brits and were sunbathing until the rain was to bad for reading, swimming in the sea until things started nibbling our legs. The sea is pure blue and warm and the sand is beautifully white with the backdrop of lush green mountains. Unfortunately it was to wet for the climb to the mountain top view point. Koh phangan one of the islands is known for its partying so off we went to the half moon party, we enjoyed dancing, chatting and getting painted with glow in the dark paint! It was great night followed by a day on the beach before our journey to koh samui where we are sitting having breakfast hoping that the rain will stop...fingers crossed!
