Koh Tao, an island north of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, has been excellent- just what the doctor ordered. We got here last Monday, which was a gorgeous day. We are staying in one of the few mid-high range boutique hotels here- Chintikari Hotel. It's located on the 'quiet' side of the island and on top of a very steep hill. Our bungalow (see pix below) sits on stilts in the middle of a jungle like atmosphere, overlooking the ocean. We have a gorgeous balcony and can sit outside and listen and watch all of the interesting birds and reptiles in the area. We are literally in the trees and we see exotic birds all the time. We also have free internet and a beautiful pool area.
We went kayaking the other day and got to see some really cool coral. We also took a snorkeling trip around the entire island and saw some amazing fish. Koh Tao is known for it's scuba and coral. Unfortunately, Jay got heat stroke and was dizzy and cold. And trust me it is so hot here you do nothing but sweat all day and night. He's ok now though, just has a red back.
