Riding around Ko Phangan, Thailand

It’s a bit windy and cloudy this morning.  But, the sun is trying to break through.

The wind is onshore here at Sandy Bay, so using my surfers knowledge, we head to the north of the island and stop at a lovely little beach, where the wind is off shore, making the sea smooth.

We relax for a while, watching the local kids mess around, and also catch a truck delivering large quantities of ice onto fishing boats moored up at the pier.

We jump back on the scooter and take one of my favourite roads in Thailand, the main road south through the island.  It’s a wonderful display of tourist and authentic Thai life, all pitched wither side of the jungle road.

We pass schools, small houses, big houses, business, and more.

We get to Thong Sala, the main ferry port and town.  We buy our exit tickets for Monday morning, as it’s always good to be a few days ahead with your planning.

We grab some lunch, and then head over to Tesco.  Even a small island like Ko Phangan has a Tesco.

We stock up on birthday treats, including a small birthday cake.

Back on the bike, and back to the bungalow.

We chill on veranda.
