Unfortunately we had to move on…..
We had thought because we were flying in to Bangkok and out again on Bangkok Airways that we would have no problem changing planes, as we had noticed that all their flights seemed to be from the same area…. Wrong! It is such a huge airport….. and of course we arrived in a totally different area.
We were faced with this departure board when we arrived….. but couldn't work out where we were supposed to go….
Our arrival in Koh Samui was totally different.
For starters there was no real building…… just walkways between covered areas for baggage etc.
Our car was waiting to take us to our rented villa in Bang Po…Villa Serena… which we had rented for a month. We chose the north side of the island because it has very little nightlife.
It is almost on the beach… which is just past the swimming pool
Our first evening we were able to take a walk along the beach to a local restaurant, mentioned in a Travel and Leisure article…..
We weren't expecting to see a buffalo en route…. and indeed we never saw it again...
The food here was so good it has become our local …..almost every other night! Average cost of a meal for 2 is less than $20!
And we have discovered that we are just along the beach from a home owned by David Beckham
A slight difference in size however..…..
Actually don't think we will bother…it seems as though he has only visited it once since completion! Or has managed to arrive un-noticed!!
