Back In Koh Samui

on Saturday, 18 September 2010

This morning we leave the pier area and decide to head to Koh Samui. We are up and at the tour office at 8:00am. We get a lift into town and have to wait an hour for a minibus to take us back to Had Yai. From here we get a ticket to Koh Samui, we get a minibus to Surat Thani, which takes four hours, we arrive at another tour office and are told we have missed the bus to the pier by 10 minutes and that we will have to wait till 11pm and get the night boat to Koh Samui, which takes all night or we can pay another 350baht each and get another ferry to Koh Samui. We argue with the women for a while, but are getting nowhere and the women is actual starting to cry. We have no choice and have to pay the extra 350 baht. We get another minibus to the pier and then a huge ferry to Koh Samui, which takes one and a half hours. We share a taxi with a Dutch couple into Chaweng and find a hostel for the night. We manage to find a room for 600baht, which is really really nice and we can’t believe we have got somewhere so nice for this price. We go out and get some food and end up staying out late having some beers and playing some pool.
