From Patong, Phuket we hopped a tiny little plane with Bangkok Airways to Koh Samui. The flight was extremely short lasting only about an hour and the views prior to landing magnificent clear blue water. We were only in Koh Samui for a few hours before catching our ferry to Koh Panangh, our boat was extremely delayed by hours so we made the most of the location and went swimming at the port.
Once on the island we checked into the Bayshore resort which was nice however the rooms not quite as luxurious as The Kee Resort, but located right on Haad Rin beach and the most beautiful pool - just check out that view!
Our first full day on the island we booked a tour heading out kayaking, waterfall climbing and swimming, exploring the island's Chinese temple and caught a boat out of the local fishing village to a snorkeling spot to explore. This island is honestly jungle meets the beach and you can really see the Thai authenticity compared to tourist over run Phuket.
The following night we sipped margaritas on the beach post dinner and lazed around prior to the full moon party on Haad Rin beach. This party was crazy with buckets of whatever your heart desired only at 400 baart a pop. Proudly I lasted until midnight before heading to a street stall getting a slice of pizza and heading to bed. Our stay on Haad Rin beach was five days of great fun, relaxing and lapping up the sun - ticking another thing off the bucket list.
Until next time ..
