Thailand 101 - Koh Samui

Next stop are the islands Samui and Phangan. I took a flight on Bangkok airways from Phuket to Koh Samui on one of their prop planes. The flight took about twice as long as a 737 but was 5 times less expensive. I think I paid US$10 for the flight. 

The flight took around an hour and a half, we even got an in flight meal. Once we got to Koh Samui, I took a bus to the local mall, just to check out where the locals shopped. It was essentially like any western mall, except with different chain stores. Although, in saying that, they did have a FKC with an unusual offering, a corn sundae. I was intrigued. I purchased a corn sundae and well... it delivered. It was a sundae with creamed corn. I must say that this is probably not a good buy.

After wandering around the mall for a while, I headed out to see the local sites, of which there were few. Samui is more of a relaxing stop before you head over to Koh Phangan and the legendary full moon parties. In my next post I will tell you a story of an expensive speedboat ride into Koh Pahngan, that led to one crazy night.

  3. At first seeing that it looked liked sliced pineapple. How was it? Was a sundae all you got out there or was there a food that you actually enjoyed?
