My holiday is finished. We went to bed since 10pm last night. It's really quiet here-i was still thinking about Jamakiri, would be nice if I stay there. Anyway, this morning we brushed our teeth without toothpaste, we took a shower without soap and we didn't wash our hair, to save the ocean. We had lunch, then took a cab to the pier to go back home. A long journey again.
11 am-wake up
4pm-on bus to the train station
5pm-waiting at the train station/eating
8pm-the train announced for the delay
9.30pm-the train came
What a day!
We lose a half day for transportation. We told each other, no more bus again, if the plane is too expensive, we’ll choose the train but if not, only plane from now.
We're at Chumphon train station. It was just raining when we arrived. We're waiting for the train which would come in the next 4 hours, and it's also delayed about 45 minutes. It was also my first time to take a first class train. It's nice. The price is a little bit more expensive than bus but more comfortable. Two beds: ground and upstairs, our own sink, room service, a soft bed, our own light to read and locked-door, only one bad thing for me is we can hear the next cabin. In the middle of the night, I woke up because of the noise of baby who was crying non-stop :D
The conclusion of the trip: for me I don’t like. I told myself I’d go back to Koh Tao again if I go to dive but if I need to relax, my Phangan Island is always the safe place! And if anyone tells me that Koh Tao is beautiful, not for diving but for the beach, shows me the pictures!!!!!! :D
p.s. Actually I think it's beautiful as much as the other islands, but just me that didn't plan a thing so my first time in Koh Tao wasn't impressive at all, but I'm sure I'll go back again with a nice plan! :)
