I spent 18 hours by bus from Chiang Mai to Surat Thani , then 1 hour and half to arrived to the ferry and another hour and half to reach Koh Samui.
Now…Tell me if it is not woth it!
Now I stay in Think & Retrò, a beautiful accomodation along Lipa Noi beach.
Think & Retrò is born from the idea to create business recycling, to reduce the waste of the island. Is a great message in Thailand, because Thai usually don’t recycle at all.
The most notable recycle is the decor of Think’s cottage that came from Old Containers, painted with bright colors, but all around the hall and restaurant you could discover funny, intelligent, way to decore and recycle!
Bottles, old sewing machine, woods and plastic, tin cans, lanterns, straw hats…a lot of materials used to create something beauty and functional at the same time!
If you stay only one night in Lipa Noi, don’t miss the dinner in Think & Retrò, you’ll stay directly into the beach, a thin strip of land, with few tourists (no ombrella or other turist beach amenities). During evening you coul see lanterns flying from the beach into the sky!
