Day 6, Koh Tao, Thailand the first adventure.....
So the ride from Bangkok to Koh Tao was nothing less than interesting. Koh Tao is a small island located in southern Thailand off the coast of the Gulf of Thailand. We took an overnight train from Bangkok that took 8 hours! We heard it was slow and late but thought since we were traveling at night it would be okay, not to mention we got second class tickets in an air conditioned car. Sounds good right? Well the car was about 10 below 0 .... Freezing! We had to get our fleece jackets out and I wrapped the scarf I bought around my face and head. This wasn't so funny since we were traveling with muslim Thai women. After we arrived at the station, we had a bus ride, then took an almost 3 hour ferry to the island. After w stopped for breakfast we took a taxi (a four-wheel drive pick-up truck) through the jungle to the other side of the island to arrive at Posiden to check into our beach bungalow all before noon. Then we hit the beach which is all we plan to do for the next 2 days. A little snorkling, a few beers and food!
