This morning we packed all our stuff and moved it to our new Deluxe Bungalow, room D003. The room is not bigger than our previous room, but it’s got a wooden floor, a TV and a safe. No fridge, and unfortunately there’s no more fan. This room is actually not worth the extra 1200 Baht per night we’re paying, but a quiet night is. We are satisfied.

Today we don’t want to do any tours but stay on the beach and relax. Our plan is to spend the hot hours of the day with massage and with planning the remaining days of our trip, so first we head to the Internet room and check information about Ko Ngai and Ko Lanta. Internet is very slow (as everywhere on the island) and costs a whooping 3 Baht per minute.

So after having spent almost 300 Baht online without coming to a final conclusion, we finally connected our laptop to our mobile phone and surf via GPRS. Seems to be a little cheaper and faster than the Internet cafe solution.

We decide to leave Ko Lipe on Sunday and head for Ko Ngai, where we will stay for 4 nights. After that we’ll move on to Ko Lanta. At Pakbara Speed Boat Club we’re buying our boat ticket Ko Lipe – Ko Lanta and also finalize our bookings at Ko Ngai and Lanta. It’s now almost 2:30 pm, so we move on to a one-hour foot massage. When we’re finally on the beach, the sun is pretty low already, but that’s good news for my brown-reddish skin.
