    Schnorcheln/ Wandern Koh Tao

    January 5, 2020 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Essen am Eagle Eye Viewpoint🦅 und plantschen am Sharkbay🦈. Logistisch kein Problem. Mit unseren bärenstarken Roller konnten wir bisher jeder Steigung und jeden Höhenmeter die Stirn bieten🤙🏼🐻. Der folgende Tag trieb uns zum Tanote Beach und brachte uns nicht nur beinahe wieder einen Sonnenbrand ein ..sondern, nach etwas Überwindung auch einen unvergesslichen 8m Sprung von der gegenüberliegenden Klippe🙊. Nach ein paar Tipps vom Strand ging es dann noch rasch zum Fraggle Rock⛰. Und wie so oft bestätigte sich: umso härter der Aufstieg, desto besser die Aussicht🤩.Read more

    Koh Samui -> Koh Tao (take 2)

    March 4, 2020 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Getting the ferry back to Koh Tao today (I’ve spent a lot of time on these ferries) but we booked it for 1pm so we had the morning to spare. After breakfast at the hotel we walked down to the giant gold Buddha about 15 minutes away. It was pretty big!

    Got our stuff and walked to the pier- was close by so very easy! Ferry took 2 hours so we arrived back at Koh Tao at 3pm and got the transfer to the hotel. Very strange to be staying in more of a fancy hotel/resort for me- but it’s lovely! It’s at the south of the island- shark bay and the beach is beautiful!

    Checked in and lounged by the pool until sunset, then found a restaurant nearby for dinner and funny little bar for a drink and cards!

    Koh Tao take 2 day 1

    March 5, 2020 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Chill day today for me and Fran. We had breakfast (it’s a buffet which is such a novelty!) and then chilled by the pool and on the beach. We can borrow snorkels for free here so we went for a snorkel in the morning and then again after lunch and I saw a shark - just a small reef shark but it was so cute!

    We then got the shuttle bus into Sairee in the evening (the busier area where I was staying before) and we had a massage, dinner and a few drinks.

    Koh Tao take 2 day 3

    March 7, 2020 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Last full day on Koh Tao! Feel like I’ve been here for ages- but I love this island so that’s ok 😍. Had a chilled morning; Fran holly and I ended up doing a photoshoot in the infinity pool 😂 and then we had a little snorkel in the bay. No more sharks but lots of cute fish!

    Headed into Sairee for the afternoon to have lunch and we wanted to see the sunset. Before sunset we went for a massage which was lovely! The sunset was amazing- too many photos have been taken! Had dumplings for dinner and then headed home earlyish as we needed to pack and we were all sleepy!

    Koh Tao take 2 day 2

    March 6, 2020 in Thailand ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Holly and George arrive today! They were on the early boat from Koh Samui so they actually arrived while we were having breakfast. Caught up with them by the pool in the morning and then headed off on a taxi boat to Koh Nang Yuan- a small island off the shore of Koh Tao. It’s actually 3 islands connected by 2 sandbars, id been here with Kate in 2012 and knew we needed to go back!

    The taxi boat was quite fun, very small boat and we saw a turtle on the surface! So cute!

    The island has an amazing viewpoint so we walked up to that first, so sweaty! But totally worth it as the view is amazing! Then we jumped in the water and did some snorkelling, sunbathing and had lunch. Headed back about 4 and then showered and went into Sairee beach for the evening. Had a delicious dinner at a small place- the best Massaman curry I’ve ever had! Then had a few drinks on the beach in a chill place and wandered down to the bigger bars that had fire throwers and buckets- we’d found out today that the full moon party had been cancelled due to Coronavirus so I thought we better get a bucket just in case it was our only chance! Headed home about 1.

    Koh Tao - Shark Bay

    February 1, 2019 in Thailand ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Koh Tao is a small island with a great underwater world. After a scuba diving day yesterday we went on a snorkeling trip today to see some more places. The first stop was shark bay, but we didn't saw any sharks there :(

    Koh Tao ist wie bereits erwähnt eine sehr kleine Insel die an sich nicht wirklich viel zu bieten hat. Aber dafür ist es Unterwasser umso schöner. Nach einem Tauchtag gestern ging es heute auf eine Schnorcheltour um die Insel. Der erste Stop war die Shark Bay. Leider haben wir hier zwar kein Hai gesehen, aber es hat dennoch Spaß gemacht.
