After yesterday’s day of travelling, it felt only right that we should relax and use the resort facilities. Coming from the calm and tranquility of Ko Lanta to this resort is a bit of a shock. Firstly, it’s not packed solid, plenty of sunbeds available at the pool, plenty of empty tables at breakfast, but even so, from what we’ve been used to, it’s a bit different.
Breakfast: the normal deal of absolutely any food available. Who would normally eat chicken nuggets? Or stir fry? For breakfast? Well I suppose some people must. The issue today was making the 10am breakfast cutoff!
The Pool: definitely the feel of a resort. The water polo nets are up and there are plenty of kids splashing and screaming about. Also, they play a lot, and I mean a lot, of Sam Smith. We even heard a blast of Gloria Gaynor’s ‘I Will Survive’!! Having said that, you can swim to the pool bar and get a drink! Swings and roundabouts I suppose.
We headed out into town tonight, a lot more touristy than we’ve been used to: tattoo parlours, lady boys, massages, souvenir shops and neon lights. We had dinner in La Casa, not great, probably some of the worse food had so far. Ended up in quiet bar on the beach.
Day 10 – Pool. Town.
Fact of the Day: It is illegal to leave the house without wearing underwear.
