Thailand travel 29: Island hopping on Rose and Thong Krut Sunday lunch

Submitted by on September 24, 2016 – 9:45 am
Thong Nai-Pan Yai Thailand

Nice Beach Restaurant t Thong Nai-Pan Yai.

We set off not too early on Rose on a perfect sailing day with Jack the Burmese skipper at the helm. Wade to the boat carrying the beers and the wine and the SangSom that we will add to our blended fruit drinks when we have lunch at Nice Restaurant (true!) where we sit with our toes in the sand.

It’s on Koh Pha-Ngan Island, the location of the full moon raves at Haad Rin Beach.

We pass that by and head on via a stop-off at Hat Yao East beach and to Thong Nai-Pan Yai. Barb and I have the fried noodles at Nice Beach Restaurant (true! — check the menu) where we settle in with our feet in the sand under a palm tree and an umbrella for lunch after lazing in the water. Richard has the fish and chips.

At some point make the hectic trip back to Koh Samui in blustery conditions and drizzle.

Then the next morning, Sunday, Richard drives is right down the island to the family-run Beach Restaurant at Thong Krut,   It’s a favorite of theirs. And it’s fabulous.

Chill out in the evening and drank lashings of quince tea and read.
