Arriving in Haad Rin Nai (a city on Koh Phagnan) only a few days before the Full Moon party meant that all the prices of the rooms were inflated. We looked around for a little bit but everything was more than we wanted to pay (1500 Baht a night, give me a break, that's American prices). Luckily enough, Maggie remembered a cheap place she stayed the last time she was here so we headed over there. They had rooms for only 400 Baht a night (which has now turned into 300 Baht a night the day after the Full Moon Party) and there were shacks on a hill side with wifi connection in the shacks - what else could we ask for? It's also not on the crazy party side of Haad Rin where the actual Full Moon Party so we get a little peace and quite when we want it and not 24/7 blaring techno music.

The next series of pictures takes you on the path up to our place. It involves a steep flight of stairs that leaves the legs burning every time we climb them and then a walk across piecemeal wood planks that can be more or less secure depending on where you step.
|If you look closely, you can see two of the many kittens that live around here sitting half way up the stairs|
Our place has a nice little poach with a great view of the water and the island of Koh Samui in the distance. The interior of our place is nothing special, one room dominated by the bed and a small bathroom but we have electricity and wifi, so really no complaints from us.
