Koh Samui – Day 2.

After the very long journey we really enjoyed our lazy day around the house.

We decided to head into Mae Nam for the evening. Thursday night is “Walking Street” night in Mae Nam and my sister had also located a Turkish restaurant in the same area.

I have been thinking about hiring a scooter but in 2 days have seen 2 smashes and am really not so sure now. Anyway we drove through some pretty crazy traffic…… They drive on the same side as the UK here…so glad someone told me I would have driven on the right otherwise.

We managed to find so we here to park and set off to explore walking street. It wasn’t long before we started seeing things we wanted to buy. I got a great pair of trousers for about 1/3 of the price I have paid for similar in Turkey. Hubby got a great shirt again crazy cheap…..I got a hair slide…which was expensive in comparison but still cheap. We spent about 600 baht total…. 40 Turkish lira or about £13. What a haul!

At the end of Walking street we can to Mae Nam temple…it was just there in the street and was one of the most amazing buildings I have ever seen

It was so ornate and beautifully decorated in bright colours and amazing designs of Chinese style dragons. The picture is not fantastic but you will get the idea.
