- meeting a lovely UK couple called Guy and Sarah (hi guys!) who were over here for a friend's wedding: they were staying in the same resort and we ended up drinking with them one evening instead of paying the silly price for the Black Moon party (we'll come back for the Full Moon party instead)
- Bestaurants Pizza Chiara and AndoLoco in the nearby town of Tongsala
- watching Man Utd live (at 3pm on a Saturday) and beating Wigan 4-0 ;-)
- having a bungalow resort almost entirely to ourself (!)
- sitting with my new wife and watching dawn break on the beach
- the amazing beaches, especially Haad Rin!
Alas, it's now time to pack, ready for tomorrow's 14-hour taxi/boat/coach ride to Phuket... but both agree we shall be back here before we leave Asia, if only to explore the rest of the island.
