Welcome to the original Koh Samui info and weather blog with lots of information on things to do and see around tropical island destination Koh Samui in Thailand including daily weather updates, brought to you by long term resident Camille Lemmens since February 2007.
Today I had an afternoon off in Khao Lak, in-between the PADI IDC and the PADI IE and I decided to drive to Takua Pa, a city that became famous after the 2004 tsunami, because of it's hospital where many injured found their way and for the identification center after the tsunami, which was located just outside of the city in Ban Muang. The cemetery where all unidentified foreign bodies have been buried is opposite the identification center. More on this come 26th December, with the 10 year remembrance ceremonies.
The view on the whole car and the sales area
Driving around the city, it turned out that it was a lot less picturesque and a lot smaller than expected, so I was basically on my way out when my eye caught this month's entry in the Food on Wheels series!
Simple and easy, on any hot day in Thailand, and there are many of those, it'a nice to have a cold, refreshing drink. The lady with this van can accommodate that! And some snacks to go with it as well.
The actual drinks on sale
It's mostly drinks for kids and non alcoholic drinks that are available. A nice variation to the theme in Thailand, we've seen the drinks but not the vehicle and well worth to be added to this series.
It's cloudy this morning with a few blue spots and the sun fighting hard to break through around Koh Samui. Current temp at 7am is 27.5C
In Khao Lak, we have a lovely blue sky with a few isolated showers. Current temp at 7am is 23.7C
Looks familiar? If it does, you've probably been to Thailand before! Plastic chairs, cheap tables and a counter to get some food, a typical Thai restaurant. This one is near the Raja Ferry pier in Lipa Noi
Yesterday saw a dry day for a change around Samui with a max temp of 30.7C
We also had a dry day in Khao Lak with a max temp of 31.3C
