Arrived in Ko Samui two days ago and stayed one night in Chaweng. It was awful. I’ve never been to Cancun… but it looked like they could have filmed MTV Spring Break there.
Yesterday, we caught a ferry to Ko Phan Ngan and are now on a small beach called Thong Nai Pan Noi. We’re staying in a small bungalow in a place called Baan Panburi. Our hut costs 650 baht a night (about 12 bucks), and comes fully equiped with fan, mosquito netting, and cold water. 🙂 It’s beautiful.
The beach is quiet, there’s lots of sun, and the restaurant is great.
The Baan Panburi restaurant:
It’s right on the beach. 🙂
