We were excited, going to the beach woohoo
Went downstairs, no one was there. fuck the reception is not opening before 8am, it was 7am and we had to be at the airport at 8am! The lady finally woke up, took her 15 minutes to do the bill (told u not quick in this country)
Took a cab on the street, took us 5 minutes to actually explain him where we wanted to go "airport, plane, flying" yea I`m not fluent in Thai yet haha
Arrived on time in Bangkok international...
After landing in Surat Thani, we didn`t know where to go. We catch a bus to go to Koh Phangan, thought it was going to be for like an hour ride but no it was 2hours in a hot bus... We arrived in some kind of Pier where we`ve been told that the next ferry to the island is at 2pm means 2h away.
Took the ferry, arrived in Koh Phangan 3 hours after.
From there we took a Songthaew, which is a car, like really big to put bagpack and lots of people.
But there, we made it, Haat Rhin, in the south of the island. Find a nice bungalow to live in, about 2 minutes from the beach.
We went for a swim, the sea is so hot u wouldn`t believe it and sand is white of my god, like a postcard!
Had something to eat, then off to the beach for some nice party, had few buckets... it was lovely!!!!!!
There it is... paradise!!!!
