home sweet haad rin nai

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 view from the street looking up at our place--that's Maggie in yellow

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.
