I know I haven’t been writing for a good while. I blame it on wedding planning and my time devoted to workout so I can look sexy in my wedding dresses. However, I am trying to get back to the game and write more other than just food reviews. So I would like to start with one of the best trips I have been on in my life – honeymoon in Thailand!
It was a fun, exciting and romantic experience. We arrived in Koh Samui, Thailand in the early afternoon. The airport is tiny and tranquil. We took a cab ride to our resort, Hansar Samui on Bophut Beach. During the short ride, we got to see the undeveloped and original sides of the island. People were riding on scooters without helmets fiercely. Or they were on the back of a truck without sea belts. The low-rise houses or shacks along the road is a sharp contrast to the resorts they built for tourists.
Our resort has breath-taking views, infinity pool and extremely friendly staff. In addition, our suite is very sexy, just perfect for honeymooners. Our room is facing the pool as well as the beach and has a balcony right on the porch so you can relax on the couch and take in the beautiful views and feed the mosquitos.There are so many damn mosquitos! The shower is right in the center of the room with glass windows and shower comes right down from the ceiling. It is very sexy indeed!
We enjoyed every single day on the island and wish we could stay forever. We started our day with fabulous breakfast buffet, which comes with traditional Thai breakfast and even Pad Thai! Of course they also serve Western breakfast such as cereal, yogurt, pastry and bacon/sausage. After a feast, we went skinny dip in the infinity pool so we could get a healthy color on our skin and stayed cool under scorching sun. Reading by the pool was also a must do during the day before the sun went down. It was also nice to walk around the Fisherman’s Village and explored the neighborhood.
The highlight of the island really lies in their gorgeous beach, fresh and delicious food and friendly locals. I have never experienced water that clean, warm and welcoming. The food is cheap and you can try so many different food if you are up for it. You have to get fresh coconut everyday because it costs a merely $1.5. The locals are very friendly and love to help, except the cab drivers.
For the short period of time we were on Koh Samui, I felt totally immersed in the surroundings and forgot all about the hustle bustle in New York City. It was a shame we couldn’t stay longer and enjoyed the peace and quiet longer.
We shall be back real soon to celebrate another life milestone!
