I caught the bus and ferry from Bangkok to Koh Chang today. I was here last year and liked it so much that I decided to come back for a while. I got the same room as I stayed in last time. It is a little more expensive than last time, but they said they would give me two nights free if I stayed a week, which makes it nearly the same price.

It is amazing in just that short time, new developments have sprung up. Last time I was here it was rainy season, so there weren’t as many people around. But still it is a pretty laid back place. It is also so much greener down this way. Up north it was so hot and dry. Today it was so mild and even rained a bit.
