Koh Samui

After bussing from Phuket, J and I caught a ferry to Koh Samui and spent two nights exploring the island. This was the first (and only) place we hired a scooter to look around and it was so much fun, and a great way to really get a feel for the place.

A surprisingly tasty stirfry on the ferry, with a lovely gooey egg:


Dinner at the restaurant in front of our hotel. We chose a 2-person set menu that cost 450 baht total (about $13). It came with fried pork with garlic and black pepper, green chicken curry, Panang chicken curry, tom yam prawns, stir-fried seafood, rice, and finished with banana with coconut milk (which I must have forgotten to photograph).


My plate with the assorted curries. They were delicious and *very* spicy. We discovered that neither of us are fans of the miniature Thai eggplants though.


More snacks! The Shark brand of energy drinks are nice and almost as common as Red Bull.


Some grilled meat from a roadside stall, fish balls on the left and chicken on the right.


A blurry photo of a gorgeous dragonfruit, also purchased from a roadside stall.


The innards. Very refreshing!


A beautifully-prepared pineapple - so sweet and juicy.


Cute penguin icypole:


The incredible range of Pringles in a supermarket:


Some Chinese (I think) buns from the same supermarket:


One had a savoury filling:


And this one was sweet, pandan-flavoured


J's Massaman curry at the hotel restaurant - delicious


I wasn't feeling very hungry and so ordered a chicken salad - but ended up with a huge plate of food!


I developed an addition for seaweed snacks on our holiday, these are some of the types I tried. I've found a limited selection of the same brand at a few places back home, but sadly for about 8 times the price!
