Thanks Jimmy, nice photos and good to be reminded of how nice it can be here. I don't get many visitors to show around, maybe time for what the Singaporeans call a 'staycation', a weekend staying at a hotel in your own country/island. Even though I don't live in a cramped public housing flat like so many Singaporeans, it can still be a fun thing to do here. If anyone won a local hotel voucher in a lucky draw and wants to sell it for a good price, just PM me!

Thanks, Jimmy, a good idea to follow – to show the true beauty of Land-of-Smiles, and perhaps also something amazing and different – can be inspiration for many of those readers/posters looking for a temporary or permanent move, and various treads can show different parts of Thailand seen with a local expat's, not eyes, but camera-lens...smile.png

Today, I finally stopped at a mini theme park,, I guess one would call it, it not finished yet, but undergoing a prolonged "soft opening"!

It's between Ban Tai and Maenam, Samui.... looks like a fun place for families..or even adults, young at heart! .thumbsup.gif

All kinds of little shops in there, quality of merchandise looked pretty good...

I know same same beach... Ban Tai Samui, but the only area deep enough without going half way to Koh Phangan! facepalm.gif

Next week I have promised myself to go further afield!

I have been putting leg weights on with tube and float in 5 feet of water for about 20 minutes each day... it is helping my back, recommended by a Samui member! thumbsup.gif
