Arrived Koh Tao this morning and found items stolen from outer compartments of ruc-sac, luckily nothing of real value. On speaking to owner of guesthouse he immediately guessed that I had travelled with Songserm Express Bus & Boat from Bangkok via Chumpon. Apparently an almost daily occurrence with the suspects likely to be the staff on the overnight bus as they have hours to go through the bags. I am not naive to the fact the drivers of the buses are probably not employed by Songserm but the management of this company need to take note & hopefully people will seek other means of getting from BKK to the islands. You have been warned - Don't leave anything of value easily accessible - I had an expensive pair of board short & jandals taken ! I feel a beer Chang coming on.
