Arriving On Koh Tao

on Friday, 30 July 2010

This morning we leave Koh Samui and head to Koh Tao to do some diving. It finally feels like we are doing something again, like earlier in the trip. We get to the pier and they say the boat is fully booked and we will have to go on the waiting list. Luckily 5 minutes before departure they say they have some space and we get on, Koh Samui is a great place and I wouldn’t have minded staying, but can’t wait to get some diving done in some clear water. We arrive on Koh Tao, which is an absolute paradise island, more so than Samui or Pha-Ngan. We get a taxi to the resort and after about 2 hours of trying to check in, looking at rooms and trying to make deals, we get a room and settle in. I am unsure whether to do my Advanced course, or just some pleasure dives. We will decide tomorrow!

That night be walk along the beach and have some food and a beer, I leave early as I am so tired and go back to the hotel, while the others go out to some other bars and end up spending almost the whole night out! Probably won’t be on time for their Discover scuba courses.
