We had breakfast and got on the boat at 11 am, the journey was far less rough than the previous one. Don't think we could have survived that distance in rough seas.
Koh Samui is a real holiday resort, it has all you can image of a holiday destination in Europe, fancy reports, honeymooners and package holiday makers. That sounds great but we're thinking when you have very little money it its the kind of place you can visit easily.
We walked along the beach in hope of finding a half-decent place hidden between the big fancy resorts. The result was an eccentric old Thai guy with a crazy filing system and obviously never threw anything out. The room was in a good location, sea view, but a fair mess inside (there are photos). The was a fridge totally covered in black marker sat at one side of the room which had been turned off for years. The electric sockets had bare metal showing (although for some reason Rachael couldn't see an issue in this) and to top it off the fan looked as though it was going to drop from the room. Anyway at least its cheap, £5!
After checking in we decided we'd go and look for another place for tomorrow night. We walked around the south of the Lamai beach and soon found a better place run by an Australian couple, we decided we'd go in the morning.
In the evening we went into the town to see what it had to offer. It was pretty buzzing and now feeling for the first time on the trip we're on holiday we thought we'd splash out for dinner and grab some seafood, unfortunately it was a little disappointing but least we were full. The cheapest beer we found all night was in a great spot on the sea front on the way home.
