Mid May 2006 was our first trip to the Far East and Thailand and if most of the people are like the Thai's then we want to explore more before we get too old to enjoy it.
Flew to Bangkok with Etihad Airways , fantastic service and stayed for 5 nights at the Indra Regent Hotel. That was interesting to say the least. Hotel super and comfortable.
Flew out to Kho Samui by Bongkok Airways. What a lovely way to run an airline , a complementry corner for drinks and pickie bits at both the airports. It runs like a taxi service. Arrived in Samui at the tail end of a Typhoon. Interesting landing and when it rains ,it rains! Stayed at Amanda Samui Resort , our own bungalow, surrounded by coconut trees , Mangos and orcids. Although this resort is on the "wrong" side of the island it was ideal for us, away from the hussle and bussel of Chewang Beach!
The staff and management were wonderful and went out of their way to make our stay "special". Nice pool, massage sala and resturant although the chef could use his imagination a little more the food was still good.
Certianly we will be going back next year.
