I'm currently in Thailand, have been for 2 weeks and will be here till the 7th july, then I'm headed to Malaysia fo 2 weeks (which I never intended to do originally, Laura made me, she'll be dragging me kicking and screaming) with my current excellent travel bud Laura who is then unfortunatley staying there, then buggering off to Austrailia, lucky so and so. As I only intended to do Thailand, I'll be going back there as I have more to do and see. I'm flying back into Bangkok on the 21st July. I then plan to go to Kanchanaburi to go to the Erwan NP to see the amazing waterfalls, the temple where the monks keep tigers, the bridge over the River Kwai, the Death Railway and the museum there. Then I'd like to do some islands, Ko Chang + Ko Samet for some final sun, fun and relaxation(already done Ko Tao and Ko Pha Ngan and by then will have done Phuket((which IS an island)) and Phi-Phi). My trip will end with poss a week or more in Bangkok to see Grand Palace and LOADS of other sights, go shopping for family presents etc... So , if there's anybody who has any of those plans in common with me, let me know as I'd love company for the end of my journey. Safe travels x x x
Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet up with you on Ko Phangan. Full Moon Party was a bit crazy. I stayed in Ko Phangan for about 3-4 days and then I went to Koh Tao for some scuba diving. I left Koh Tao on the 22nd for Krabi/Raileh Best.
I am leaving Thailand on the 30th after I go to Koh Phi Phi and i'll also be in Malaysia approximately the same time. (I'll be on the Perhentian Islands and then Kuala Lumpur for 2 nights until I catch a flight to Cambodia)
If there is a slight chance you'll be in any of the same places let me know. I still have the same Thai phone number but the shitty phone I bought doesn't really work very well. Battery is bad and the ringer doesn't work so I never know when anyone is calling unless i'm looking at the phone.
Anyway, If I don't hear from you, have fun. Sounds like you're already having a blast anyway.
Good to know you're still alive! I left Ko Pha Ngan on the Tues, went to Ko Tao and did my PADI. I'm currently at Patong Beach on Phuket, I'm going to Phi-Phi's either tomorrow or Monday, there for 3 nights weather dependent then to Railey in Krabi! We're following the same path I guess. We're also going to Songkhla for a few days before Malaysia. We're headed to those same islands first too, but I won't be there till about 7th/8th July.... Let me know as I'd love to put a face to the name... Take care x x
Interesting, I was diving at Ban's Diving Resort for 6 days. Where'd you do your PADI? It wasn't Ban's, was it? Diving in Koh Tao was pretty nice but it was bit crowded. Who knows I may have seen you on Koh Tao.
Anyway, I am leaving for Koh Phi Phi this morning and I should be there until about the 29th-30th and then I am heading to Malaysia. Give me a buzz if you're around. Phi Phi is supposed to be small so I guess I could probably run into you.
West Railay beach is really really nice, unfortunately there is absolutely zero night life here at the moment. It's a nice place to relax but because of low/monsoon season there is not many people. Everything here is a bit more expensive as well food, accomadation and internet. Internet here is 3baht/minute. West Railay so far has the best beach i've seen
I did my PADI at ASIA DIVERS which is about 5-10 mins away from where you was. We were more in the town where as you was on the beach near the night life, lucky bugger! I'm on Phi-Phi now!! I have your number still so will try to contact you through text... In case I don't hear from you as your phones busted, have fun!
