After a little searching, Abby and I have rented a house in Lamai, Ko Samui, Thailand.

It’s 1 bedroom house, about a 10 minute walk to the beach. It’s very close to a Wat, and amongst Thai surroundings. We even have a small view of the mountains.

We are renting the house here to have a more permanent home then a guest house, and to save money during the next 6 weeks we are here in Thailand. We hope to get a further 1 month visa extension giving us nearly 3 months here.

The house was fairly basic inside. We have a sofa, bed, some furniture, cable TV and air conditioning in the bedroom.

The house costs 7,000 Bath per month (£124). So this give us a bit of budget to buy things for the house. On our way to the supermarket we noticed a Thai style shop selling home wares. Pretty much everything in the shop was 10 Bath (20 pence!). We stocked up on a lot of things such as bowls and clothes. A trip to the supermarket got us everything else we needed.

Thailand is pretty cheap for most things, and we didn’t need to spend too much to get what we wanted.
