After Phangan we hit Koh Tao and stayed in Sairee Beach. We stayed at Amonrada House which was simple and small but at least had A/C for under $30/night. It's a short walk from the beach and close to several restaurants. We hit some rain here so I was weary to bring my camera out and only got a few shots of a nearby patch of palm sprawl. This was our last island hop for Thailand and we made the treacherous journey back to Bangkok which took around 10 hours. We took a ferry to Chumphon then caught a bus back to Bangkok. We made it back to Bangkok around 9pm. Another full day of transportation!
While we had stayed in the Khao San area of Bangkok last time, we opted to stay in Sukhumvit where we would have easy access to the sky train.
It has a more downtown, city feel, but we were missing the quaintness of the small Khao San streets.
While we love Thai food, I stumbled upon the perfect non Thai place for dinner one night. Ronny's New York Pizza. Two things I was missing at the moment: Pizza and New York. Done. Let's go. We finally find it among the fleshpot of Nana Plaza and go to town. It even feels and looks a bit New York-ish.
Big apple or Bangkok?
So our Thailand adventure ended with New York spirit! Next up? Cambodia!
