After staying on the very busy Koh Tao, we arrived at Mai Pen Rai and breathed a huge sigh of relief! This felt like going back in time to what we had hoped to find in other parts of Thailand, now sadly over developed. Here is a small piece of paradise, with a very refreshingly laid back, friendly atmosphere, set in a National Park, a wonderful place to go back to nature! We stayed in one of the beach bungalows, which was a very clean, simple structure, and as I'm always worried about mosquitos, we had taken an extra mosquito net, and a coil to burn, and werent bitten once. The beach is beautiful, the perfect setting for sunning, swimming, and relaxing. Everyone working here was very helpful and the food and cocktails were delicious, we just wish we'd had more time to stay, relax, and to explore the surrounds. Being woken to the sound of the waves on the shore from our little beach bungalow is an unforgettable, amazing experience!
