Milky Bay, Koh Phangan, how we love thee ....

We are back at Milky Bay, on the Gulf side of Thailand, having just left Krabi on the Andaman Sea. This side of the land of Thai is quite different geographically, with no limestone rocks but plenty of beauty I can assure you. Our favourite island - so far - is Koh Phangan, specifically Milky Bay. We are enjoying, for the second year running, the Milky Bay Resort, owned by the one and only Chris Zanasi, of Primi Piatti fame once upon a time. This resort has it all...it's stylish, quiet, has a stunning private beach, a pool overlooking the bay, amazing staff, a great team of masseuses, very good food & more. The town of Koh Phangan itself is a vibe ...it reminds me of a village in a bit of a time warp...quaint and very old buildings, some very interesting architecture that feels like it could be 1960's Vietnam. Hop on a a scooter & explore it & the beaches around the island...most gorgeous being Haad Salad & Bottle Beach. The latter is only reached via long tail & is well worth the visit & even a sleepover. Stunning....I'll prove it, as below...
