Up early, packed our bags and got ready for a morning of exploring.
We jumped back on the scooters and headed to find some waterfalls. The sky was dark but luckily not raining.
On route to the waterfalls we passed elephants and monkeys. Not wild, but still.
At the national park HQ the rain fell and we sheltered undercover and ate breakfast.
From the HQ we could follow a nature trail along a series of waterfalls to a view point. It was wet and slippery and in order to get to a view point you have to climb. The girls were less than happy about the walk, but it all payed off once we got to the top. A superb view of the west coast of Koh Phangam.
Getting down was a lot easier that getting up and once at the bottom we got to feed an elephant and talk to its owner.
We headed north next. The beaches in the north are suppose to be the most picturesque. Even on a cloudy grey day they still held some beauty. We ate lunch on a beachfront restaurant before heading back to the guesthouse to collect our bags and check out.
This afternoon we left Koh Phangam and headed to Koh Tao on another rocky boat.
The plan for Koh Tao was to stay at a dive school so we could get PADI certified. Bans diving school, provided accommodation and a highly recommended dive school. The place was huge, two pools, beach front, bars and restaurants. We checked in and soon started our first lesson at our PADI orientation. We had a good little group, Buller, Siobh and Me, with Morris (Irish) and Beth (English). Our instructor was John and he was from Manchester.
The itinerary was set for the next 3 days and we had some homework to do for the night!
We met Donna afterwards and headed for dinner.
