Thai Railway is one of transportation that I use a lot. Taking train traveling between Bangkok and Suratthani could be very cheap. I usually take sleeping train which provided bunk bed with fan if I travel in winter and taking air conditioner one in Sumbmer. It’s comfortable and cheap enough. Train ticket between Bangkok it could be cheap. Fo fan class, it’s less than 500 and for air con, it’s less than 800. However the price is based on distance.
Back in middle of October, 2012 that I got a chance to celebrate my birthday with people who represent most of important people of my life at the moment. I celebrated my 24th birthday with my mom, my love and one of my close friends, and new friends on the island of fun, Koh Samui.
I had only a few days in Koh Samui but short time of good memory is actually live in my heart for a life time.
Samui island is another attracting both budget or luxury travelers. It’s located in Gulf of Thailand about 35 km northeast of Surat Thani. Or 3 hours and half by ferry.
How to get there
Plane from Bangkok about 2 hour and half
Bus (8hours) + Ferry (3.30 hours), Train (10 hours or more) + Ferry (3.30 hours)
* There would be gap of transit
Best Mojito made from Basil leafs not mints!!?
Vacation work usually gives you a lot of experiences … I support that.
Back in December 2012, I was working at a resort as ‘Everything woman’. I did everything. But it was a nice opportunity for me to learn new skills.
A few starving guests ordered food in late afternoon one day. Unfortunately our cook was not there at the moment and I volunteered to cook and fill their tummy. I cooked for them under condition that they have to eat whatever I can cook. ( I can cook only one dish at the moment )
For five weeks that I lived in Koh Phangan I think motorbike is needed. First 2 weeks, I didn’t rent motorbike and I regret it. From my experience,
I think you need motorbike if you:
– You are going to be there for more than 3 days
- If you’re going to be there only the day you arrived and leave in next morning. Taking taxi will be more comfortable and more convenient
Would you think you will smile everyday if you lost a leg? Your life wouldn’t be the same isn’t it? But will you give up? Will you fight to live happily? And enjoy every moment without pain and sorrow? Well, a dog does!
My plan to leave my hometown seems to postpone. I’ve been here for 2 weeks now even I feel strange being a guest of my parents for this long. Anyway, being home during some festivals is nice, because it brings family to be together, have fun and update about things in living.
Yesterday was Chinese New Year and I got invited to my aunt’s house. She married a kind Thai Chinese man who’s become an uncle I really love.
A dog lover like me can’t stand smart dogs. What I mean with ‘can’t stand’ is, I want to hug them, I want to play with them, and I love them since the first met. This is also happened with “ABC”
ABC is a dog at Hansa Resort where I had a short vacation worked. First day I heard someone called his name “ABC” I was wondering if there is another dog named ‘DEF’ but no, they has another name.
Resort’s guess who gives love to ABC as well as other does
I’ve made it! I’ve arrived Koh Phangan where I can enjoy traveling, get new experiences, love and live my life.
After I’ve finished meeting with my bosses, I excused myself to explore this paradise island with my friend. Yes! Mr. Sunshine’s going to be my guide.
Love at First Sight
I don’t really believe in love at first sight. But I was craving love as much as I craving enjoying the beach! On the ride, I enjoyed the view from both side of the road. At some points I saw really nice restaurants, resorts, bungalow and even ocean. It was about sunset time. But with cloudy sky, the light was not that beautiful. I was a little bit disappointed but I told myself that, I have plenty of times and tomorrow the sun may come!
