Island Hopping in Thailand

Evans - As you most likely read earlier, Scott and I took our Advanced Open Water dive course in Koh Tao. And I have to agree, it was surreal. You can't even begin to explain what it's like over here. It really is a whole new level. And the water wasn't even the only thing great about Koh Tao, the island itself is a wonder to behold. It's a paradise that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. Preferably more if you have the chance. And I'm sure you'd make time for that if you ever came down here. After spending around ten days there, partying with new friends, and seeing the annual Koh Tao Festival, which we were lucky to be there in time, we headed off to Koh Phangan. This island was no different from the first. The water was magnificent, and the beaches were amazing. Koh Mah, our favourite beach on the island, was absolutely stunning. Lots of fish to see while snorkeling in the water, and just a breath taking view all around us. We rented a motorbike and took it around the island a few times, and the views continue to amaze both of us. We were there for the half moon party as well. We didn't have our camera, because we've heard there are troubles with theft there, so just look it up on google to see it. It was set up in a tribal type of scene, it was really something else. We're now in Koh Phi Phi, and it's our second day here. We went to a Reggae bar last night, and they have a fight ring set up, and if you volunteer, you get free drinks. I had a little too many, so I volunteered. It was loads of fun, that's for sure. It was just kick boxing mostly, with three one minute rounds. We're planning on taking the day trip/tour around the island, which we're both really looking forward too. And we're going to try camping out here as well. And possibly more scuba diving too, since we've heard this is a great place to do it. That's it for now, I know it's been a while since I posted, but I'll try to add more next time.
