As part of our “Thailand Road Trip ver 3.0” Gracie and I kept driving south from Cha-Am to several points along the coast, ending up in Donsak. As many of you might know, the Donsak pier is where the ferries to Ko Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao leave from.
There are two main piers: the “SEATRAN Pier” and the “RAJA Ferry Pier”
I have only taken SEATRAN to/from Ko Samui and RAJA to/from Koh Phangan. It wasn’t really by design, it just turned out that each time I flew to Surat Thani and then took a shuttle to Donsak, those were the respective ferry companies that I ended up taking.
SEATRAN is definitely my preferred company. Overall they have better infrastructure (Pier facilities, the boats’ age and condition) and far better customer service in my experience.
SO, this trip to Ko Samui, we purchased 2 ferry tickets, plus car. The total came to 800 THB. Arriving at the ferry port, we were told we needed to get a Swab Test. We parked the car and walked over to an specific building for this. There were medical staff and administrators that were VERY nice, provided great customer service and had our NEGATIVE (whew) test results for us quicker than I could say, “Cat in the Hat” 😉
We stayed at a resort I have stayed at a few times. LIPA BAY RESORT. As the name suggests, its on Lipa Bay, and thus, just south of the Nathon Pier so, an easy commute.
The next morning I found this place on AirBnB so wanted to shoot this video and give you some idea of the BARGAINS available right now. Keep in mind it is about the 2nd week in October of 2021. The result of the travel restrictions have resulted in close to ZERO tourists.
This house is just one example of a house easily available for rent in Samui (and well as Phangan)
If you don’t want to watch the whole video, the cost via AirBnB ended up being 1255 THB ($37.75) for 3 nights or about $12.60/night.
I have a word to describe 2 story houses that rent for $12.60 a night: F R E E!!!

Thanks for watching and commenting.

At the request of a few of you, I pulled out the end of the previous video’s topic: Needs vs. Wants.
I agree, its a good discussion on its own. Definitely GRATITUDE ATTACK worthy all on its own.
Enjoy,

I just love the HEAT and HUMIDITY that is South East Asia and specifically my permanent home for almost 2 years, Thailand.
Just 2 years ago, I boarded my one-way flight from LAX to BKK. A few days later, Gracie and I were getting off the bus that goes from Bangkok to Hua Hin at the Cha-Am stop and heading to our first AirBnB.
Since then we’ve lived here, and in Bangkok and traveled to several places here in the Kingdom of Thailand.
Each and Everytime we make our way back to Cha-Am I seem to be more and more content. Walking on this beach just after sunrise continues to be one of the best medicines for my psyche!
During this trip, I find myself getting Extreme enjoyment from walking during the hottest part of the day… for hours.. In about 38°C (100°F) heat and 65%++ humidity.
(as I type this it’s 41°!!! and I could feel more “comfortable”)
This is the second in what seems to be a series of lengthy “Walk’n’Talk” videos that I like to schedule as a Premier. This allows me to offer a “live stream-like” experience with Live Chat from a produced video.
Hope you enjoy.
Looning forward to sharing more of a life that I label as “Extraordinarily Ordinary”.

Live the Dream!!

As I began my “noon time” Beach Walk ala “absolute warmest, sunniest part of the day, I thought AGAIN, how ridiculously lucky I am. I am actually quite pleased that the “broken record” life I seem to have is one of almost non-stop, varying levels of gratitude.
The phrase, PINCH ME! comes to mind.
So, thought I’d take you guys and gals along and we’d have a live-stream-like premier and see if this works.
Thanks for joining!
Hope you’re Living the Dream!
