Koh Phangan and Koh Tao
I took 24 seats VIP bus from BKK to Koh Phangan.
From BKK to Koh Phangan was quite far,so I sleep to the destination
One hour was fast while I was strolling around waiting for furry arrival.
Morning Ray on the new day were greeting the far away visitors with the shimmering reflexion on the sea water.
The 4 paws host voluntarily came to welcome visitors as always.
At 8.00 am. the furry engine started, its time for a solo tourist like me should hurry to find a peaceful nook. I had better take some rest I felt a bit exhausted from count down activity on the bus last night.
After taking a nap for a while, open my eyes again where was I? Such a wonderful blue sky today!
Lately morning the furry arrived to Koh Phangan, I didn’t want to wasted time so I phoned to the resort owner to pick me up immediately.
Haad Yao Overbay Resort was my place for tonight http://www.haadyaooverbayresort.com
The resort huts located on the hill offered both of the 360 ํ beautiful mountain view and sea view of Koh Phangan every room.
Simple but clean room with greenery view on the back side of the hut
There was inside bathroom with hot water and washing facilities needed.
Soft and clean pillows and bed induce me to lay my back down right now.
I think the bed was fit for two (- -!).
TV and refrigerator were common facilities for every room here.
Prefer Air conditioner or not? Up to your choice.
After unpacked I took a tour around the island by a motorbike under the Sun for a while, the sky please me with cold raining water then.
Even the sky was dark blue and the rain was pouring I still took driving around visited almost every beach except Thong Nai Pan Beach. Then I was back to the resort for dinner.
For the hot vacation destination like this we had to wait for orders longer than usual. So, be patient at the bar was a good idea!
I think, outside was more peaceful this time.
After I finished my dinner, the tourists were going back to their room, but I preferred to stay taking night shots around.
Because it was my turn! ^ ^ Laying down on the wooden cool floor.
Reception area of the resort was builded from wood so the floor and the temperature around here was cooler than it should be if it was concrete and cement.
Thai fabrics and simple furniture were used for the decorations. The style was less that made more.
Since I was here I could see the many available tables like this only late at night.
Bright blue sky of the next morning induce me to take a second round motorbike tour while waiting for boat to visit Koh Tao at 2 pm.
I edged my way around to take some photographs.
At Blue Sea Resort, the beautiful resort, unluckily I was not allowed taking photos inside. This was the view of the beach there.
So, I was continued my tour and stopped to bow to the holy spirit of the island.
About late of 3 pm. I arrived on Koh Tao by siting on the garbage tank of clouded boat which made me think about the clouded public bus in BKK in the evenings.
Coral View Resortwas my place for tonight. The way to reach the resort was rough and bumpy but you will forget the torment after you arrived.
This wonderful calm resort was next to Shark Island ( Koh Shalam) the coral island, the popular island for diving tourists. The rent was only 700 baths a night and this was mine.
I arrived here almost sunset so I spent most time left in the resort, had some beer and chatting with the resort owner. He was so kind and friendly, she also gave me many bottles of beer.
Then he took me to test sea-food at LookPi Sea Food restaurant, the recommended sea-food restaurant. You would know the best of sea-food here.
The next morning with plan to visit Koh NangYuan at first, unfortunately I felt badly on my thigh
I tried to massage myself but it couldn’t help, so I walked lamely to the resort counter service asked for mussel pain killer.
Even my leg was hurt but I didn’t forget to take beautiful shots of shark island from the highpoint spot.
Ignoring sour leg (thought at first, it didn’t matter), walked to the beach and took this shot.
I couldn’t bear my pain anymore, I walked back to my room but then I slipped on the last step, what’s an unlucky man!
Hobble to the beach…
Thai massage was the good idea for now, and the charge was affordable.
After the massage I talked to a Japanese old man who was fishing over there. He told me that he was back and forth traveling to this island since he was young.
We talk about traveling and got along well very fast, he advised me some interesting place around the island and invite me to drink at the bar.
After talking and drinking for a while, I excused to take a walk and he went back to go fishing.
Sunbeam was reducing it power while tourists were going to get sun tanning on the beach. Here I had opportunity to talk with resort owner, he told me that this place was popular for sunbathing because of it calmness and no clouds to bother.
The owner told me that almost 100 per-cent of tourists here was foreigners. Some rented for months.
Greenery beach with small hill and crystal clear water, I couldn’t see one piece of garbage or plastic bag.
Even it was calm and peaceful but we could find adventure activities such as canoe or ca-yank for rent.
Such a wonderful place for vacation, don’t you think so?
The tourist group was coming back from diving; the service you could find from resorts here.
One shot of cute girl on the beach to coloring the lonely trip of my. Not spying! the resort owner were siting with me.
The beautiful sea like this time almost made me decided to make a off to visit Koh NangYuan as I planed at first but then I realized that work could not wait.
I had to say good bye the wonderful sea-view of Shark island.
I got boat and car ticket around 4 pm.
So, I leisurely sat and waited for arrival time, I saw Koh NangYuan not very far from this but I couldn’t reach!
The boat started its engine at almost 5 pm., with this last light I said good bye Koh Tao, bye for now.
In fact, my first wish-list destination was Koh Ngam Yuan, but it was my stupid to overuse my legs for walking, so I got thigh muscle pain badly.
Anyway, wonderful experience from this trip shown that pain couldn’t harm my heart.
Thank you for following as always.
