Traveling across Thailands islands for three weeks. Lot’s of water sports and spectacular sunsets at numerous locations. Phuket is always crowed in February with all the tourists partying and dancing to the late night beats. But up on the hill overlooking…. Patong beach is the Crest Resort Hotel and Spa with it’s pool access rooms and private villas. You will have the best vantage point for watching the sun go down over the horizon from the pool bar with your favourite libation in hand.
While your staying at the Crest View Resort and Spa be sure to go down and spend the day at Paradise Beach. Get there as early as you possible can because by lunchtime it will be packed with people. Cheap paddle boards and kayak rentals or provided and I also made a new friend. He absolutely loves to join you on the paddle board or accompany you swimming. He does not play fetch however! This is also the location for the ‘Half Moon Party’ if your interested.
One of Thailands most famous islands is Koh Phi Phi. You can take the ‘Pirate Ship’ on a six hour trip around all the famous beaches and snorkeling spots. My favorite part was kayaking around Maya Bay and checking out the cheeky monkeys on ‘Monkey Beach’.
The monkeys are used to people and you an get very close to them. I don’t recommend feeding them by hand unless you don’t mind loosing a finger or two.
This place is called the ‘Pool Villa by the Passage’ and it’s on the northwest corner of Koh Samui. I’ll tell you a secret. The best back packer bar with amazing green curry is just around the corner from here. About a five minute walk and its called The Beryl Bar.
