Day 5 & 6

Last night we picked up and left Hua Hin and went to Koh Samui (an island in the Southern part of Thailand) We took a bus all night and then we waited 3 hours for another bus and then got on a boat. This is a shot of the country side:
When we got there we looked around for a hotel room but all the places in our price range were taken. I decided to run along the beach to find a hotel that was close to the water and in our price range and available. This is what I found (picture one is the walk way connecting our bungalow to the beach and the second is our bungalow)not bad, huh?

Then we went for the first meal of the was 2 in the afternoon, we were starving!!!First we had fresh coconuts, this island has the highest quality coconuts in all of Thailand and so we just had to try them! These are some pretty young coconuts, but they were really delicious!
This is a mango salad:
