Bangkok & Koh Chang

Bangkok and Koh Chang

storm 35 °C

We set off from Heathrow airport on the 8th of October and arrived in Bkk on the 9th of Oct! We stopped in Doha in the dead of night and sat in a deserted airport on sticy seats for six hours twiddling our thumbs-
Servs us right for getting the cheapest flights!!!

We stayed in four sons place near the koahsan road for the first night,P1010856.jpg
then off to White sands beach Koh Chang.

It is so refreshing to come back to the place you have missed for four years and things are still as you remember them! (I know I sound like an old fart!)
Actually it is slowly getting over developed, with monster five star resorts that none of us mere mortals will be able to afford!

We chilled there for a week making friends with a Thai fire twirler called Bon ('second best on island, best over there somewhere!')P1020070.jpg
And with a dog called Wolfy, he is a gorgoes ancient beach dog with the softest ears, he slept outside our room, just for the fussing!! (And shade I think)

On the 19th oct we moved to lonely beach, which is on the south west coast. If white sands beach is like the Jazz field at Pilton festival, Lonely is the Green fields!
The accomodation is gorgeous and cheap, there are lovely eco friendly "resorts" built in to the jungle setting (not fighting with it)

We are both in love with a place called the tree house - which has the best vege food I have ever come across!
Tofu with everything please! It is part Ewok village, part Exmoor bovvy!
We will post some pics of the toilets and showers which definately get you closer to nature.
Open air with free hanging vines, pebble walls and tad poles swimming in the shower pools.
Beautiful but a bit too close to all the bugs for me so we opt to stay at Katchapura; more ewok style pads but bathrooms with a degree of 'sealdness'.

Sitting here chuckling about your bathroom comment, I too like a sealed bathroom. Open air showers v nice but you want to know you're not going to come across any nasties at 2 in the morning when you need the loo !
