We got up and had breakfast this morning and this music was still banging (not many people still on the beach mind). We spoke to the owner of the place we ate breakfast and asked how he copes with it every month. He said you just learn to get used to it as the party brings him so much business he can't really complain. He told us that there is a full moon on New Years Eve and he is booked up already.
We checked out of the bug hut and waited for our taxi to pick us up and take us to the pier. As we were the furthest away, we were picked up first and we went round the other hotels until the pick-up was full with tired, hungover people. The journey to the pier was definitely the most dangerous we have taken so far on the trip. He drove far to fast, overtook in places he shouldn't have, 13 grown adults aboard, at one point we were doing about 70mph when one of the bags on the roof went flying down the road. We all started banging on the window for him to stop and he took no notice of us. Eventually he got the idea, turned around and went back for the bag and set off again just as fast!
We arrived at the pier all grateful to still be in one piece and boarded the boat. We were really glad we weren't hungover today as the sea was really rough. After two hours we were both looking a little green but arrived safe and sound in Ko Tao.
Ko Tao is famous for its scuba diving but we have plans for some simple snorkelling. Seems a bit of an odd place really as most stay in diving reports with food and drink included, so off season its a bit of a ghost town.
