Days 13 and 14 – February 13, 2014
Koh Samui, Thailand
Lamai Buri Resort
We left the mainland behind this morning and took the ferry to Koh Samui, a small island off the east coast of Thailand. After checking in we immediately headed to the beach for a quick swim in the ocean and happy hour with our toes in the sand.
In the evening we went to a local night market which was again, mostly touristy crap with a taser or two thrown in for good measure. I’m not really one to buy souvenirs so I just wandered around until it was time to go to the bar.
We ended up at Swing Bar, so named because the seating around the bar is swings, suspended from the ceiling by thick ropes. After ordering drinks we headed to the beach for a nightly fire show that got a little close for comfort, but was still pretty neat.
The next day was spent by the pool and the evening was spent dancing the night away at Ark Bar at Chaweng Beach. After doing so much with the elephants and exploring in Bangkok over the last couple weeks we knew that our time in the islands would be taken at a much slower pace.
