We arrived at ko phangan on the 27th, having read reviews of where we were going to be staying (after booking)we were a little un nerved by what we read. (Staff stealing and fighting with customers) but when we arrived at sunrise resort in Haad Rin we were pleasantly suprised. It was right on the beach and had a lovely swimming pool....perfect. We arrived about 2.30pm, the sun was still shining so we decided to have a bit of a relaxing sesh around the pool.
After an hour or so the clouds started coming over so we took a walk up the beach ( where they hold the full moon party's) and stumbled across a bar on a rock, ironically called 'the Rock bar'. Our intentions were to stay for a couple Of drinks, then go to the room and get ready for diner. However it started to pour down with rain which continued for about 3 1/2 hours. So we decide to stay and have some food and continued drinking. By the time the rain had stopped my husband was bladdered!!!!
