After three flights and 24 hours of travelling, arriving at Koh Samui airport would bring a smile to the face of even the weariest of traveller. Looking more like a Hawaiian hut than an airport we were collected from the plane by little trestle trains, brightly coloured and open aired. “Only in Thailand” my man and I said to each other as we trundled along the runway towards the arrivals hut alongside landing jet planes.
This is what we love about Thailand (hence this being our third visit!). It’s not only a beautiful and magical country full of wonderful people and the tastiest of food but also quirky and unique and in so many places still really undeveloped.
