Koh Samui Rupert writes
Our first stop on our unexpected tour of the Gulf of Thailand’s south islands was Koh Samui.
Largely built up for package tourists with, hints of a backpacker paradise history, this island was, to put it simply, easy. We started in Chaweng with Isabel and James, staying in a fancy room that was way over our budget. The same night we found a fantastic Indian Restaurant that had low tables and those Indian cushion seats – when calling the waiter over for another order of samosas whilst leaning back on a cushion, legs stretched out, bottle of Chang in hand, it’s not just a feeling of luxury; it’s a feeling of peaceful tranquility mixed in with subtle embarrassment.
