Last time I wrote before we were leaving and here we are now, in Asia. First we went to Thailand for two weeks and there are no words to describe our trip there. We were two nights in Bangkok, which was reeeeally big city. My friend is studying there now so it was easy for us to be in Bangkok because she already knew the city and how to get from place A to place B and what is good price for tuktuk and taxi etc. She showed us the city and we went for example to Khao San Road, which is really popular street for backpackers, and also we went to see some market. There was so cheap!

From Bangkok we went to Hua Hin because Kerttu’s mother’s friend has an apartment there so we could stay there were cheaply. Hua Hin was OK but maybe not for us.. There was too much finnish people and also some menus in restaurants were finnish and I don’t like that..

From Hua Hin we went bu bus and ferry to Ko Tao which is a peace of heaven. I really liked that place and I’m so happy we went there. There we met amazing people we hang out with. We ate really cheap and really good food and also went to see the ladyboyshow, hahah. On our last day we┬árented kayaks and went to a really small island ┬áNang Yuan. The landscape was amazing and you always only see that kind of views in internet.

On monday 21st of September we took a ferry to Koh Pha Ngan and stayed there in Coral Bungalows. I miss that place and that island really much. We spent wonderful time there with out new friends from Israel and Wales. We had a pool in our bungalow so there we just tanned ourselves all the days. It was like +32 every day and in the evenings it was +26 also so it was really hot in there in Thailand.

We were four nights in Koh Pha Ngan and then we had to leave. We went by ferry to Surat Thani and we had booked a flight from there to Kuala Lumpur, where we spent one day. We went to see the Petronas twin towers and Chinatown. Then we left to BALI!!!! It was like 3-4 hours flight from Kuala Lumpur to Denpasar but it really felt like 10 hours haha I felt that I had been sitting there for a lifetime..

But finally we arrived in Bali and one guy from our accommodation came to pick us and drove us to our accommodation. It was really late so we didn’t do much, just went to sleep!
