Ko Chang:East coast - The souk

North of the island

Said bye bye to Bang Bao and Tetanus. Took a songtow jeep taxi up to another resort called White Sands to try to find a bank.

Nice place more classy than Lonley beach where we went yesterday (buckets, yooof, noise, pollution) not our cup of chang at all.
But this beach was nice and civilized, did our errands then found a nice beach cafe for a spot of lunch.

After lunch Jason needed a haircut so we stopped at a salon that said "Haircut for Man"

Showed her a picture of Noel Gallagher, he came out looking more like Noel Coward.

Funny, you know that bit in the film "Dumb and Dumber" Where they are getting made over, and they each have a lady working on every part of them? well thats what it was like.

"Mr! I give foot scrub"
"Mr! I do manicure you nails wery dirty"
"Mr! U want rock star haircut"

Pissed myself laughing until I got talked into having a manicure, about 2 mins in I realised that Alix (my ten year old niece) could do a better job. That wiped the smile off my face and a fiver out of my pocket!!

Once we had calmed down from our pampering/ mutilation we phoned our next hotel to ask for directions and he said he would pick us up from the ferry, very kind.
He is a really cool young Thai guy called Eddie he's very well travelled and has worked all over the world as a chef. The place gets rave reviews so we were looking forward to it.

Had a mess about in the free Kayaks for an hour then had a delicious dinner in Eddies on site restaurant.

Not sure how I will sleep tonight, this place is pretty much open to the jungle...

The ceiling is covered with Gekko/lizard things (like your tattoo Faye) which make a funny noise and scamper about the roof.

Currently there are 7 of these creatures above our bed. I am definitely not getting out of the mossy net tonight!!

I had my hair cut in the same salon. Number 0 all over, mind. Know what you mean about Lonely Beach. it is party central but we prefer to stay up at White Sands as better accommodation and not in your face.

Am enjoying reading this blog!

Hahha Jason nearly got a number 0 all over too! She said "you want machine?" I'm sure you can imagine his response.
