We've arrived at the beach! Man it takes all day to get anywhere around here. We left our hotel in Chiang Mai at 8am and arrived at this hotel (Lamai Wanta) at 830pm. Makes sense when you consider we took a taxi, a plane to Bangkok where we had to get and recheck our luggage, plane to Surat Thani, bus to the dock, ferry to koh samui and then mini bus to the hotel. Sheesh! We grabbed some dinner and are chilling on our deck having a Chang beer. This hotel seems lovely in the dark. We will see what the beach looks like tomorrow. We splurged a bit on this hotel as we figure we won't really be spending money lying on the beach reading.
Oh and that blue sign means "no durians" not "no Grenades". We've seen similar signs everywhere due to their offensive smell. We have tried them. It's weird but not terrible. XoxoRead more
