I would give anything to be back on the beaches of Thailand right now. This past week has been so cold here in Taipei, and I could definitely do with some rays. I could also do with 24/7 cocktails on the beach or by the pool, cheap shopping in the markets and eating delicious Thai food.
These photos were all taken in Koh Samui. When I went there for the first time in 2008 I just fell in love with the place. What's not to love? Clear blue water, soft white sand and a very relaxed atmosphere. I realized I could easily become a beach bum, no prob.
Last year, The Boyfriend and I went back to Koh Samui after visiting Bangkok and Koh Phangan as well. We stayed in a lovely resort called Iyara, where we were treated as VIPs and had a beautiful suite overlooking the ocean.
Thailand is only a four hour flight for us from Taiwan, which means that technically I could be on the beach sipping cocktails by sunset. Let me just grab my swimsuit! Who's coming?
