After 24 hours of travel & landing in Bangkok at 1 am, my first impressions of Thailand were something like, “Oh my god … I am really here.” “This is amazing .. it is so warm & there are people out!” “My god I can’t read any of the signs .. I am going to get lost.”
I woke up early on my first day & started my trip to Koh Samet, a beautiful Island Beach 3 hours drive south of Bangkok.
Koh Samet wasn’t on my original list of places to see in Thailand. I went because I was meeting my aunt from Poland there, but I am very glad I started my trip there. It’s a small island, with a beautiful beach & a friendly, laid back vibe. The perfect place to decompress & relax.
