Paradise Resort - Ko Samui, Thailand

Ko Samui, Thailand

I can´t belive I posted a picture of modern man made things and even with people on it. But there was something special about this location so here it is.

 

On our way to and back from Ang Thong national park we stopped at the island of Ko Samui. This tropical Island has many postcard perfect beaches with white sand and coconut trees and has become one of Thailand's most popular vacation destination.

 

The most popular beaches of Lamai and Cheweng are on the east side of the Island. The northern part of the Island does not have as large and wide beaches as the east part does but it is much more relaxed. We stumbled upon this beautiful resort on the north side of the Island while driving our motorbikes down a small dirt road. It was pure luck as we had no idea where we where going.

 

We did not stay at this resort, we just had a stopped there for a fruit juice. Currency crises in Iceland means that even in "inexpensive to travel Thailand", resorts like these are well out of budget.
