Banyan Tree Christmas market

Today, from 1pm to 6pm there was a Christmas market at the Banyan Tree Samui in Lamai. I found out myself at a very late stage, so unfortunately I couldn't make a notification and add it to the upcoming events.

Great location at the beach, beats winter and snow anytime in my book!

It was very well organised and after we parked our car, it was all golf buggy rides from there onward, first off to reception to register and from there straight to the beach, which made for an interesting and enjoyable ride through the facilities. On the way out we flagged a big buggy down which brought us safely back to our car.

We arrived rather early and it was not busy at that early opening hour but an hour later when we left, a steady stream of people was arriving and it was getting nicely crowded without being too busy.

The location was well chosen, on the beach at the bay of the resort. As already mentioned in the first picture, for me this beats snow and winter anytime!

There was plenty of nice food available and the above stand by the Banyan Tree had all kinds of special Christmas food, like ginger bread houses, Marzipan Christmas stollen, English fruit cake, coconut macrones and much more.

I'm happy we could make it to the Christmas market and also bumping into some friendly and familiar faces was nice. You all stay good and enjoy the up and coming Christmas days.
