Knowing it would take four working days for my Bangladesh visa to be ready, my friend Julie and I decided to get out of the steamy concrete metropolis that is Bangkok and relax for a few days on the island of Ko Samet, four hours drive and a short ferry ride to the south east. And was it worth it or what! Ok, so it lacked the serenity and peaceful nature that made Rabbit island in Cambodia what it was, but you really can't ask for more than clear blue water, sandy beaches, good food and cocktails by sunset when the other option is spending time in the city!
