Ko Chang Chill
The second part of my vacation, after Bangkok Dangerous, was hanging out at the beach for a week. We went to Ko Chang (Elephant Island) which is about 5 hours southeast of Bangkok (close to the border of Cambodia).
It was gorgeous weather and I spent most of the week swinging in a hammock/sitting in a lounge chair (re)reading book(s) and looking out at the ocean.
We stayed at Paradise Huts which had this beautiful pavilion with hammocks and a fountain
It was a little ways from the beach and the action but super-nice because it was quiet, and when you wanted food or party you could wander down the beach to the Treehouse (a cool restaurant with a pavilion built over the water that always had fun stuff going on at night)
We also went swimming and kayaking around the nearby islands,
and did a little acroyoga,
This was a perfect morning: a tropical smoothie and a blank page in my notebook
it was a perfect break from work and Chiang Mai and I'm back at school relaxed and refreshed!
