Koh Samui

23/06/18 We've just arrived in Koh Samui. Yesterday we flew from Siem Reap to Surat Thani via Bangkok, but unfortunately we didn't get to Surat Thani in time to get the boat here, so we had a little stopover there.

Although not the capital, it is the biggest city in Vietnam, and also the most liberal and developed. The great speed at which this city has developed is evident in the… Continue reading Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon)
