17th July, 2008

Today's weather;

Another gorgeous blue sky is reigning over the Gulf and Koh Tao is baking this morning! Current temp at 7 am was 26.5C.
The PADI IE has also been completed today, see my dive blog for updates and we'll be on our way back to Koh Samui later today.

Today and tomorrow are also big Buddhist holidays, known as Buddhist Lent or in Thai as Khao Pansa, where tomorrow people will walk around the temple. Stay tuned for pictures of this event tomorrow at our local Plai Laem temple.
It's also the day when His Majesty replaces the Emerald Buddha's summer costume with that for the rainy season, which traditionally begins on the first day of Buddhist Lent.

Yesterday was a very warm, edging in on hot, day on Koh Tao. Sunshine all day long! Max temp reached 33C.

Hi Camille! I'm trying to find suitable place to stay in Koh Samui for a family with 3 kids (oldest is 7). Do you have any recommendations, or know of any web sites that offer good information about hotels? (which ones are best suited for children, - where can we expect to meet other families with children, room size specified etc).

I'm not really picky on where in Koh Samui :)

Best Regards,

Hi Terje,

Try my Samui hotel recommendation blog, Centara in Chaweng or Paradise in Maenam spring to mind, amongst others.
