White Sand Beach has been a very fun place, and even better is, I am loving my hotel. I took a chance on this place, as there were several bad reviews, but I thought, who cares for 1 night.
The reviews were very wrong. My room was clean, the bed was decent, and it had hot water, which I was not expecting for the price. Online I paid 600 baht for the night, but after seeing how great it is, I decided to stay an extra few nights, and Freddy the owner, only asks for 500 baht for each additional night. How cool is that, I got a discount without even asking!
My first night here, at around 8 pm I heard some music playing and took a look to see what was going on. On the hillside Freddy setup a TV and cushions for everyone to come relax and watch a movie or listen to music. Very chill and friendly.
I ended up becoming friends with Freddy and his girlfriend, and we had some drinks together that night. Really loving this place.
During the day, I explored the beach and swimming. Nice clean water, but no real fish to see when snorkeling. There is other eye-candy though!
The next day I was sitting eating lunch, when another guest of the hotel asked if he could sit with me, because I had the fan table. I said yes, of coarse.
His name is Ville, and he is from Finland. He has been coming here for years now and everyone knows him. We have a really good conversation, and start having beers together. Eventually he leaves to shower before we head out on the town.
As I am waiting for him, I meet another couple from Germany. Marie and Marco are best friends traveling together. We all hit it off pretty quickly, and when Ville comes back, we all head out on the town.
Our first stop is Little Red Light district. I did not know this even existed on White Sand Beach, but it does. a Mini walking street, with, yes, you guessed it. Ladyboys, hookers, and dancing.
We have one drink, and decide this is not for us, but Ville wants to stay, so this is where we part with him.
Now Marie, Marco and I are off to continue the shit show.
We went all over checking out different bars, drinking and just having a damn good time. So much of a good time that next day, I think we all felt it.
One bar that was pretty cool, was a Rock Bar where we met 2 guys from Austria, who ended up in our gang of drunks that night. I don’t recall their names though.
What a night is all I can say!
The next day I spend just relaxing and catching up on email, etc. However, that night Marie messages and asks what the hell am I doing. So, I head down the to the beach to meet them relaxing, and having a pint. What a great place to enjoy a cold one.
This night was a little slower, but still had some great conversations.
Onto the next day, I wake up early, go for a swim and book a taxi / ferry to Koh Mak. I had not planned on going here, but then I heard it is awesome, quite and a decent price. So, Yeah, I am going there.
Later in the day, I meet up with Marie and Marco. We go swimming, suntan, and enjoy our last day in White Sand Beach. Tomorrow they are also leaving but to go to Cambodia.
That night we eat at the local Night Market. Marie tries some of the local bug snacks. I also tried them, and they are not half bad.
I enjoyed my shell fish!
Our night was awesome, and I will really miss these two crazy Germans who liked to show me pictures of dicks! Long story, but they will know what I mean. lol.
Well, Goodbye White Sand Beach on Koh Chang!
