Back On Koh Chang…………….

I have been back on the island of Koh Chang for a few days of swimming and relaxing, before I make  the tiresome journey from Bangkok to Goa (via Mumbai, with a 5 hour wait for my connecting flight in Mumbai international airport……….whoopee)

I leave here tomorrow (Wednesday) for the 7 hour trek back to Bangkok, where I will stay for 2 nights and then on Friday evening I take the westbound flight to Mumbai……….

I have splashed out by staying at the Chang Buri resort hotel again……….. lovely large, clean rooms, good bathrooms, air-con and a wonderful swimming pool with a large decked area and steps into the deepwater part of the bay……….

………so just a few photos from the pool area taken in the early morning light……………..

Whenever I stay in an Hotel for more than a night, I always give a tip to the room maid, in Thailand, usually 100 bhat (£2.00)…….they work really hard for a small wage, clean the rooms immaculately and always offer you a friendly smile and a salutation (sawadee ka)……and your bathroom towels are left on your bed in a different animal incarnation everyday………… the stuff that smiles are made of………….oh, and next week, I will be found on a beach in Goa selling miniature bottles of shampoo and shower gel (^∆^)

  1. You have got lucky with that hotel! It’s beautiful! Good luck with the journey to Goa! Your first part of your trip looks like it’s been amazing! Lots of love! Ps have got quite a lot of water in this neck of the woods!

    • Thanks Liz…………I will reclaim my Indian SIM card from Agnelo’s sister Fiona when I get to Goa………….so, once I get settled in I will give you a call for an update on flood levels and the London Borough of Hounslow’s stocks of sandbags…………stay dry, keep smiling (*∆^) XX

  2. Got me again……………..yeah still using the same calculator………..I give them 100 bhat which is as you rightly point out is 2 quid…………you may remember that 50 bhat notes in Thailand are like rocking horse s**t……..seems to be either 20’s or 100’s…………….I shall amend !!
