Going to Hat Sai Keaw at Koh Samet
Another relaxed long-weekend with some friends at the island Koh Samet. This another beach, called "Hat Sai Keaw", the first beach coming from the pier where the ferry ends. No high-rise buildings, no disco's but only resorts and restaurants along the beach. It is actually amazing that within less as 3 hours drive (and 15min speed-boat) from Bangkok you are at such a beautiful relatively unspoilt island. There were a lot young Russian people at the beach and in the evening the beach is transformed into a evening entertainment area with restaurants and beach bars. Twice we had dinner at "Ploy's Restaurant" where the you do not only come for the food but also for the spectacular "Fire show" of a 15-man group entertaining you with their fire-magic shows. And of course a Philippine live band creating a great evening. Later in the evening we ended up at the "Sunrise Bar" to enjoy a good mojito. Yes it was again a great and enjoyable long weekend at Koh Samet!
