Hello world!!! travelling over the last week (most notably a 8 hr train journey and 2 hr ferry ride) we have arrived on ko tao...............and to be honest, its absolutely gorgeous!! Basically one long stretch of perfect beach! We re stayin in bungalows along the beach for around 2 or 3 quid a nite!!! Even the bars and restaraunts are all opened out on to the beach.
No sooner had we set foot on the island and stashed our bags than we were back on a boat and headed for ko pang nan and a full moon party :P, 36 hrs of a rave up on the beach, we arrived at 7 at nite and returned at 11 the next morning thoroughly raved out and drunk (and having endured the most horrible boat journey of my, bav's, life. I emptied the contents of my stomach about 6 or 7 time over!) Having arrivced back on ko tao we ve just bin chllin and checkin out the beach.
Snorkelling is awesome here and u can swim for ages and still be in around 10 feet of lush coral reef!
We spent new years in Bangkok b4 leaving on the 2nd to a place called Chumphon, perhaps best described as the thai equivalent of littlehampton. anways it served a purpose and the next day we caught the express boat which ws aweasome. new years was really good but everything closed down as about 1am cos of the bombs (ps thanks for checking how we were those of u who didnt!!). the nights before that we explored the city and saw some well cool places, see pics! we will update soon. peace out x
