What felt like the hottest and longest summer of my life has now come to an end. I am back in Chengdu, teaching my second semester at my school. Although I am feeling pretty miserable that it has ended, I enjoyed all that I did, and even managed to tick off everything from my summer bucket list. If anyone is interested in seeing my summer bucket list, the link for that post is here.

Moving on from Koh Tao, we took a ferry trip to Koh Phangan. After a very short journey, we arrived at our bungalow on the beach and we were greeted with paradise! The weather was completely the opposite of what we had experienced on the previous island, with a cloudless and clear sky, a flat calm on the sea and the whitest sand I have ever seen! This is the bliss we had been expecting and we welcomed it with open arms! We were all still pretty exhausted from the last couple of days and still very sunburnt, so we spent the day chilling and taking it easy.

After leaving Chiangmai we began the very long and arduous journey to the island of Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand. This journey consisted of a couple of taxi rides, two planes (from Chiangmai to Bangkok and then on to Surat Thani), a coach and a ferry trip. Everything was running smoothly until our ferry trip. After an hour on the ferry, the bad weather started and we ended up having a very rough journey there, so rough that my friend and sister were almost sea sick. 5 hours later we arrived at our island of Koh Tao, exhausted, ill and a bit fed up. All we wanted was a comfy bed, some aircon and a meal. Instead we were greeted with a bed as hard as the floor, a weak fan as a substitute for aircon and a shower without hot water! Guess that’s what you get for paying £6 a night!

Moving on from Bangkok, we took a direct flight to Chiangmai, about an hour north of the capital. Upon arriving in our next city, we rushed straight from our new hotel to catch the end of the weekly night market to purchase some souvenirs before heading back for a sleep!

This August, I was lucky enough to visit Thailand with a friend and one of my sisters. It was an incredible experience with many highs (and a few lows!) while we travelled to different places within Thailand. During our trip we visited Bangkok (twice), Chiangmai, Koh Tao, Koh Phangan, and had an unexpected stay in Surat Thani! By going to all of these places, we were able to see the different sides of Thailand; from the bustling city life of Bangkok, to the peaceful paradise on Koh Phangan. 

Over the next 4 days, I am going to upload 4 posts from my trip to Thailand, one from each of the places we went to. And of course, I will be including plenty of pictures from our trip! Enjoy!
