So we left samui happily 2 days ago! Samui was let's say not the greatest place we felt it was over priced and soo tourist based you couldn't see how nice it could have been. We decided to do a tour of the island which was awful we saw monkeys being forced to work, elephants that looked like they were going mad ad they were chained up, done weird rocks shaped like mens and women's bits it weren't great! Lol we saw a couple of nice views and temples but for 6 hours and £20 we weren't impressed! Booked our tickets to Penang so here we are!!
It took 16 hours yes that's 16 HOURS!!! In a taxi to a coach to a ferry to a coach to a mini bus to another mini bus lol nightmare!! But were here and straight away we felt safer being jn a city than we ever did in Thailand and we dont no why! But we love it :) room us clean and our hostel is new so is a bit of luxury lol after our first night out for dinner we realised the food really wasn't guna be that great! The quality of meat isn't great and they use everything!! Ivf never seen so much fish head curry ewww! We discovered some goood curry houses tho which has better quality and everythjn here is so much cheaper than Thailand. We much prefer it we even went to a shoppin centre today felt good to be slightly normal! We walked 7km today ( with lukes great directional skills) to a place called the botanical gardens to see monkeys and trees etc was pretty! And we have seen lots of the city we've even extended our stay in the hostel so were here a week :) love it! Tomorrow were gettin a train to the top of the mountain :) and probably seeing s spice garden too!
Hope to speak to u all soon missin u! Xxxx
