The Boat From Koh Phangan

Truly one of the very few airports that actually deserves its own blog!

Simply amazing. If only all airports were like this...well, this is provided that the weather is this good all year round of course.

The airport is essentially entirely outdoors with the departure lounge being a nice little street of shops and bars.

The security area was fairly minimal apart for the amazing security moat that must have been at least 3 or 4 foot wide, who could jump that? At 3 feet deep, who could wade that with their vicious koy guard fish!!

The gates themselves are little open air huts with free water, slushies, bread and much more free stuff...shame I only learnt of the free stuff as we boarded the plane.

This truly is an airport worth talking about...

Oh and even from the runway you can see an "ancient" golden pagoda type thing on a nearby hill. Thats a tourist attraction that you dont even need to leave the airport to see...it just gets better eh?

I flew from the humble koh samui airport to the gigantic & modern Bangkok airport, I definitely know which I prefer!

The airport is still just like that!!
Very very clean and everything is wooden and minimalistic. The conveyor belt is still just a couple of lads behind the counter carrying your bags haha!!
