Touring the Island of Koh Samui.

While spending our month long vacation on Koh Samui Island in Thailand we decided to hire out a little yellow 4WD Suzuki Jeep we figured it was a lot cheaper then Taxis or Tuk Tuk's and we could go where we wanted when we wanted the Jeep was going to cost us $25 USD per/day which was great value and more fun we could explore some of the island's jungles and hidden beaches at our own pace. This particular morning we decided to just jump in the Jeep and just drive you can't really get lost on this island there is a main road that goes right around the whole island called the Ring Road so no matter how far you travel inward the island it will always bring you back out at the Ring Road.

The morning we set of it was raining and gray but that was not going to stop us as you know with tropical weather you have a down pour and then the sun is out again a few minutes later and the great thing about tropical countries even though it rains it's not cold it still has that warm feeling , not like our western countries. After driving a few kilometers along the Ring Road we decided to hit the inland of the island we drove up the mountain side road getting up to the highest point of the island where we started to see some blue shades in the sky it was very lush green up here looking across the island valley moving on we were hoping to come out at the coastline of the island at the other end which we eventually did without google map.

Moving further along we had reached the Ring Road that runs around the coastline of the island it was about mid-morning so you would not see many places open just yet as they mainly all opened early afternoon for party time and going to all hours of the night it's like the island doesn't wake up till after mid-day expect for a couple of foreigners we saw at this beach hut starting early drinks.

We were now back on the Ring Road coastline about in the middle of the island you can actually drive right around this island on the ring road in less then two hours non-stop but driving into the roads in between the island would take you longer but we felt like we were the only people on the island so lush green , coconut farms everywhere and so peaceful and tranquil this was the road of the real tropical scene.

Driving along the ring road coastline we spotted this old car on concrete pillars down one of the little side alleyways leading to the beach we thought this looks interesting must pull in here and check this out and maybe grab some coffee and breakfast. So a quick left turn parked the yellow jeep and of for a stroll. Well it turned out no breakfast or coffee we were to early no one awake yet but the old rusted out Zephyr taxi car and Spider-Man were awake and made a interesting few photos for us the ideas people come up with but it looked quite amusing had to have a laugh 🤣

But before we said good-bye to Spider-Man out the corner of my eye i saw a ship wreck on the sand and i needed to check this out it looked of interest just like Spider-Man....lol...as we walked around the back of this other bar restaurant we couldn't believe our eyes there was more here then just a ship wreck.

We honestly couldn't believe our eyes on what we had stumbled on a whole little area of Reggae bars all so colorful with amusing sings that were all interesting to read and laughable and you wouldn't even know this place existed unless you were told about it by someone there were no signs from the road end telling you about this hidden reggae party area right by the beach only by luck that we had stumbled on it.

I loved the way this place had been put together with lots of bits and pieces that had been recycled and used in a good manner of use and well thought of like these big old drums once maybe oil drums it gave me a great idea for may outdoor party area back home.

Even the Ship Wreck was no waste and put to use it had a drinking bar set up on the deck at least if you got to waste and fell overboard you wouldn't be lost at sea maybe a broken arm or leg or a few bruises but at least you wouldn't be lost at sea 🤣

And how is this cool Tree Bar pretty neat with two levels looks as though there has been a lot of fun thoughts gone into this Reggae party area and most properly over a few drinks obviously , i would say but yeah hats of from me what a great atmosphere this would be sitting here having a cold one listening to Bob Marley.

And we did say to ourselves that we must get back here to check out the night atmosphere but unfortunately we didn't , time got away on us maybe next time we visit Koh Samui we will book a room nearby so we won't have to drive half way across the island.
