We are finally back among our own kind! We’re in the city and loving every minute of it : )
We left the suburbs (and the house-sit) and headed for Chaweng Beach… the party beach of Koh Samui. Actually, it’s a “normal” beach during the day… but after sunset it’s a never-ending string of bars & nightclubs along the beach.
We found one place called “Ark Bar” that sets up a restaurant on the beach with lights and music… we had to check it out.
Wesley was not that into it at all… until a woman came around selling trinkets. Including a green laser pen that seemed to shoot at least 1km down the beach… we saw it hit an airplane that was taking off overhead! AND it had a prism attachment.
So of course we had to purchase one!
Our hotel in Chaweng was wonderful! We stayed at the Beachcomber Hotel… a little hotel on the beach with a restaurant and pool. We thought it was fabulous.
The room said it came with air-con, an en suite bathroom and a double and twin bed. We have found that to be the most confusing thing about booking hotel rooms in Asia… the beds. When they say it has a “twin bed” they might mean it has a single… perfect for Wesley. When they say a “double” they might mean a twin or double bed… not a queen and barely enough room for two. Except for the times that they DON’T mean that and a double is a room with two SINGLE beds. You always have to check!
