A military coup? Oh really, let me just get the leeches off my feet!

Now a lot of people seem to really like Koh Samui, its one of the most famous places in Thailand for holiday makers, people we’d met travelling said they’d loved it and there were a hell of a lot of Russian speakers staying to fill up the hotels. But I’m sorry readers we didn’t. Maybe its because we’ve been totally spoilt by the beauty and tranquillity of the islands we’ve seen so far, or that the crowds were too much for the beach or that we just really really didnt want to buy a suit or  pay three times too much for a taxi. Anyways, theres pretty beaches full of pink westerners socking up the Thai sun and plenty of places to party if thats your cup of tea. I think also it was our first introduction to the seedier side of Thai culture, with visable prostitution and hostess/strip bars, which wasn’t very palitable. I apologise if you love Koh Samui, but its not our idea of an island paradise.
