We stayed inthe Bangkok Youth Hostel the first night we got to bangkok becasue we didnt know how easy it would be to find a place to stay, turns out we got dropped off at khao san rd. where there were tons of places to stay, and the youth hostel was way out of the way. the tuk-tuk driver didnt even know where it was even with thai directions.
This waterfall was in northern thailand, when we were on our day trip, elephat riding and visiting the tribal villages.
this bridge was actually falling apart as we walked across it. and beingabout 30 feet down to the river below added to the danger of this bridge.
"Angthong Marine Park"
The marine park is about a 45 minute boat ride from Koh Samuai, a southern island. We went on a Kyaking Day trip, we hiked up to this lake resovoir inside a small island. The water was such a beautiful colour, the kayak trip was amazing! the company was called Blue Stars. I highly reccommend it!
This is the very edge of bophut beach in Koh Samuai. A beautiful place.
"Big Buddah Beach"
This Buddah is on the aptly named "big buddah Beach" in koh samuai, its a nice temple on a small outlet off the beach, with the big buddah, a number of other statues by the shore, and you can purchase a patio stone to pave and help contribute to the temple, you can sign your name on your patio stone and place it wherever you want on the temple floor.
If you are on any of the islands, rent a moped and take a full day or two and drive areound the whole island.
get a map and go to all the sights on the island.
On Koh Samuai, there is the big buddah, there is numerous waterfalls, as well as a secret garden at one of the highest peaks on the island, a aquarium and tiger zoo, Many Temples, even just check out the other beaches that you arent staying at. Ridingmopeds is fun!
There are many different Buddhist Temples all across Koh Samuai, this one was a small temple with a school behind it and a very interesting sight in it...... a mummified monk.
