Koh Chang for 3 days
It is unbelievably hot and humid, and sweaty with every 5 minute walk. So today we decided to rent a motorbike, which we rode around the island and visited a waterfall with. The motorbike was convenient, as Brooke sliced up her foot, and Tina her leg, in a wonderfully stupid attempt at climbing some barnacle encrusted rocks along the cliff at the beach. We'll survive.
The island is overrun by tourists, pizza shacks, and annoying techno music despite its peaceful resort town charm. So tomorrow we are headed back to the mainland where we will take a bus back up to Bangkok and from there catch a 10 hour train to Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. No barnacles there...
