Days 15 and 16 – February 15, 2014
Koh Tao, Thailand
With our time on Koh Samui at and end we moved over to the even smaller (and much more picturesque) island of Koh Tao.
Koh Tao is known for awesome snorkelling so we took a day trip that hit three different snorkelling spots as well as a stop at a private island.
The snorkelling was pretty good, we got to see a lot of neat fish and some cool coral.
The private island was what you would imagine as an island paradise. Clear, aqua water, white sand and totally relaxing. We snorkelled a bit at the island then took a rickety wooden plank path out to a lookout point.
On our last night on the island we decided it was time to tick off a couple things on our “must do in Thailand” list. First up was to let little fish eat the dead skin off our feet, specifically “doctor fish”.
It was ticklish at first, a bit uncomfortable, and definitely the weirdest sensation ive ever felt on my feet. Afterwards I checked my soles and they did feel a bit smoother, but I’m not entirely convinced about the effectiveness of the treatment.
With clean(er) feet we decided it was time for a bit of entertainment and headed into one of the infamous lady boy shows that are so popular in Thailand.
The show was pretty great, some acts were better than others but everyone looked great and it was an awesome way to cap off our time in Thailand!
