Day 74 – 78 – XMas – Koh Chang, Thailand

We were up early to take our first bus of Thailand / Asia in elephant/ele pants attire. The drive and ferry ride to Koh Chang would take the majority of the day but we would be there for the evening. The island is not really a party backpacker island but for xmas this didn’t matter for us. A bit of pool, sun and sea would definitely but a new xmas experience!

Christmas Eve

Our first day of chilling on the beach and by the pool trying to loose those awful singlet/vest lines. I and George also made a trip to Tesco Lotus to stock up the fridge for an afternoon and night of drinking.

That evening was our xmas dinner ‘the gala dinner’ that we had to buy with our booking. It was all well presented and tried to be good but just wasn’t and the food wasn’t great, just more of a ploy to make as much money as possible.

Christmas Day

Time for the beach and matching outfits…

That evening our bathroom was inundated with ants so after a couple of complaints we got upgraded and had to move rooms twice. This slightly interrupted the Skype sessions.

Last day

Our last day in Koh Chang, tomorrow we would be leaving Kirsty and crossing the border to Siem Reap, Cambodia.
