Koh Tao Diving August 2017

We did a three day dive trip out of Chumphon to Koh Tao and around on the Tapana Catamaran with Sainamtalay. We stopped in Cha Am on the way down and the way back.

Ah, the usual pit stop at Amazon.

Lunch at the Thepprathan Steak House. The food was just so-so.

Cha Am sunrise. Always nice.

Phatangko (Chinese doughnuts) for breakfast.

Marriage registration at the Cha Am City Hall.

Chonburi and Cha Am - July 2017

Another combo trip. First a night in Chonburi followed by a few days in Cha Am

On the way we stopped in Muak Lek. Mam consulted with a client while I had coffee at Van Coffee.

Yes, it's an amazing water fountain at the Amazon Cafe at a filling station in Wang Noi.

We stayed near here at beautiful Jomtien.

Some of Jomtien is not so nice.

We stayed at the Pattaya Non Dee guest house. A very nice place. 

Big room.

We had a few drinks. Forgot the name of this very blue bar.

More Non Dee.

And more.

Breakfast at Non Dee.

On to Cha Am. Baba Beach Club still underway.

Breakfast on Cha Am beach.
