FINALLY to the last day of Koh Samui. It was so bittersweet. I was sad to leave but eager to get to Koh Phangan. We decided to lay low for the day and chill by the beach, clearly one of our favorite activities. It was another gorgeous day. We started off by having some strange breakfast sandwiches, instead of the usual Thai food.
It was the perfect day. We headed home to chill a little bit before the night market right on the street leading down to Mae Nam beach. I was so excited to go to another market, that was my favorite part about Bangkok. I love browsing all the food and little trinkets being sold. Especially when they’re so inexpensive. We bought amazing mojitos for 60 baht each ($2), and lots of different street foods along the way. I was overwhelmed with all the goods being sold, so I opted for a pair of lovely “Ray-Bans” for 150 baht and called it a night. Spense got an amazing Kabob sandwich that I forgot to document, but it was one of the best things I’ve had here! I saw the ladies who owned the salon I got my pedicure at and had a few laughs with them. They of course harassed me to get a massage but I was a little too loose from the drinks to accept. I think they were too.
The boys bought some Bose headphones and speakers for so cheap. They spent spent 2200 baht on two pairs of speakers and two headphones, unreal. They are most likely fake but they still sound good! They definitely beat my Ray-Bans. I was so impressed with the craftsmanship there, especially those homemade candles! They were gorgeous, but I couldn’t justify carrying one around with me for this whole trip.
We went home and went to bed at a reasonable time so we could wake up and pack up.
I really loved Koh Samui, it had a really strong sense of community that settled well with me. It’ll always have a little place in my heart.
Next stop, Koh Phangan. One love.
