When we arrived in Koh Samui it was actually pouring it down with rain, we hadnt got around to finding anywhere to stay so had to walk the streets for and hour and a half until we actually found something cheap and nice and also happened to be right on the beach (not that it turns out that mattered much!). We chucked all our stuff down and you guessed it had a nap lol. After this we went for a wonder around Chwang, where we were staying. Koh Samui is very westernised compared to everywhere we have been so far, theres maccy ds, starbucks and pizza huts everywhere! As it was still pouring it down we did the english thing and grabbed a starbucks and then braved the rain again for some more shopping- when it rains here it pours so you get completely drenched! We then went back and dried ourselves off and headed out for some dinner to this really nice italian resturant (which we decided on after walking up and down the street about 10 times as its sooo much more expensive here than anywhere else we have been as yet). Then to bed.
The next day it rained and rained and rained, but as we are english and used to the rain we still decided to brave it and go and have a proper look around the shops, needless to say there wasnt a lot of people about lol. After buying some crazy cheap counterfit dvds and more clothes and braclets that we dont really need we got a bit fed up of the rain so went for our daily nap lol. In the evening we went out to get extra large maccyds to cheer us up and rented a dvd player (which didnt actually work) so had an early night. As the next day we were going across to the islands on the otherside.
