RSSToday I thought we would finish the chapter Thailand ,take stock what ... So we spent something like six weeks in Thailand from Bangkok,Phuket and Koh Chang.
We finished in Phuket for remaining days because it allowed us to easily go back to Singapore.During this week there,we were so sick all our plans have fallen into the water,we had an earthquake warning of land and a false alarm Tsunami.It is interesting to see how people react to it elsewhere.In the case of the earthquake warning,we were walking on a scooter when we saw all these people that lead to the point of appointment for this purpose,but do not have access to information,we returned to hotel where the manager said: "You can follow people,or stay here,it will not change much anyway",curiously I expected that people panic and run in all directions,but not they ran quietly to the point of appointment.Note,panic is not used much.Phuket, it's a little frustrating because we could not do much about,except Songkran !
FYI,here is Koh Chang,Phuket is rather sandy beaches
Phuket is: beautiful beaches with vendors of all kinds that offer you their products,a very touristy place and I still think we were there during the low season,a city that offers plenty of nightlife and boat trips,a little expensive compared to Koh Chang elsewhere.FYI,we stayed at Nanai Residence,which is quite cheap and okay and 7Q,close to the sea it is really good with a lovely staff!Example: the night watchman,helped me after my boyfriend when he felt bad and I panicked,and returned several times check that all was well.Never seen that before!
Visit Koh Chang
Koh Chang Island Elephants !We had a good week in Koh Chang.Basically we wanted to spend a few days on the island but we liked it so much we stayed. What to do in Koh Chang?A little bit of everything.We decided to visit the island on a scooter for more flexibility,which also helps to lose and fall on banana and rubber trees.If you remember well in Koh Chang there is only one main road,then what are paths ... it is possible to lose anyway.But lost on an island like this is fun!
Koh Chang is also activities with elephants feeding,from the mountain with them ... An encounter with an elephant,it's magic!Obviously not at the zoo,in true .Koh Chang offers a few large waterfalls that are worth visiting,Klong Plu is one of them. We can go on a scooter without a problem,then you have to walk a quarter of an hour before going for a swim in fresh water ... and fish.Without scooter must take the taxi transport on the island,which still costs more expensive and does not offer the same flexibility!
Conclusion: Koh Chang,I loved it.It is still wild compared to Phuket,friendly people and beautiful scenery.The cost is reasonable,although higher than in Bangkok for example.
This is where we stayed the longest in the end.We made "tour of temples" each more beautiful than the others,remember: Wat Pho ,Wat Arun and Wat Traimit .We kept the Grand Palace to the end but we had not realized that it fell on the day of the funeral of a member of the royal family ... It will be a next time.
