Friday we went out to Koh Larn, located just outside Pattaya. I had really high expectations from the.pictures we've seen but it wasn't good at all. Too touristy and not that beautiful at all. Not Pattaya nor this island is worth a visit. We had some great food though!! And the ferry ride to get there wasn't that bad either!
Yesterday we arrived to Koh Samet, an island located about 1h south of Pattaya. And it is amazing!! So beautiful!!! Unfortunately, as Olivia wrote, we weren't able to sleep last night so the energy wasn't really on top today.. so we've spent all day at the beach, just swimming and taking it slow. Tonight we're gonna have dinner at one of the beach restaurants yey!!
Every time we try to go to sleep early we end up waking up at midnight and lying awake for hours. Why? I hardly believe that we can still be jetlaged. Can't see any other explanation though.. I spend my time listening to some real emo music and waiting for better times.
Btw. We found out the hard way that we both left our phone chargers at the last hotel. FML.
Arrived to Koh Samet earlier this evening. Instant regret that we didn't come here straight away, it's amazing! So far we've only had dinner here though and I had a walk on the beach, we're so tired that we're already in bed (9.30). I'm so ready for tomorrow!
Not my favourite place ever. Everything I had heard about it seemed to be true. Definitely the sex capital in the world. Walking down the street you saw hundreds of prostitutes, girls dressed up to sexy nurses (and such), stripclubs and so on. I don't know how many times they tried to get us in to see a ping-pong show or whatever. Or how many times people were being inappropriate to us.
But some people might like it. Probably half of the people there were from Russia. There was a lot of things happening at least!
Found an ok club and took like 500 shots there. Feels like it anways. None of us have eaten anything so far today. Not really left bed either.
Visited this amazing rooftop yesterday. Had a mojito and it was easily the best one I've ever had. Unfortunately we've decided to start living cheaper which probably means less rooftop bars and cocktails.. Unfortunately pt. 2 we've already failed with doing so today.
Tonight we're going to Party in Pattaya and will not save any money doing that either (been looking at a rooftop bar that looked very nice). Almost a bit scared since partying in Bangkok was so cray-cray!
So tell me, what's better than waking up in a hotel room to a sunny morning and loads of fun plans? Not much.. would be a bit better if I could get this old waterproof mascara off my lashes but it's a no-can-do. That's about it though!
Gonna go down soon for breakfast. Hopefully it's good because apparently we chose a pretty nice hotel this time! As usual we do this trip fancy backpacker-style and live a much more luxurious life than we can afford. Probably not a very good idea but it has worked for us so far!
So yesterday we left Bangkok after 2 amazing days. It felt like we were there for a week though! We really managed to make the most of it! Among other things, we had time to: eat a ton of good food, go on the river, go in a tuk tuk, have cocktails on a rooftop, go out clubbing twice, go to to crazy afterparties, go shopping, die a little coz of the heat, go in a rooftop swimming pool, eat street food and get an unknown amount of blisters. Favourite in Bangkok? Easily going on the river tour. A must do!
The weather was mostly cloudy with some showers every now and then, and I reckon it was perfect. We probably would have died if it had been sunny, and doing these tourist things would have been unbearable haha!
So now we're in Jomtien, which is just 10km from the more (infamous) party city Pattaya. We took the easy way out and just got a cab straight from our hostel in Bangkok. No ragrets!! Taxis are so cheap here anyways!
