We arrived in Koh Chang after travelling for 30 hours exhausted and overheated (April norms) and made it as far as a Italian restaurant in White sand beach. At which we asked the owner of the restaurant if she new where the Elephant and Castle was, after we had dinner there, She said "John" one of her best friends and even talked to the taxi driver for us to get there, WE WHERE EVER SO HAPPY. We trudged up the small path to the Hotel and John immediately took us in as Family!. This place will grow on you in no time, one of his four Dogs adopted us and made us feel safe at she guarded our porch of out clean Bungalo every night, remember the Elephant and Castle backs up to Pristine Thailand Jungle and every morning the sounds of Tropical bird's and buzz of insects will be sorely missed now. John has a minage of animals he has rescued, and one pet jungle frog. So long story short John and his Thai Wife are extremely friendly, if you want to stay where you are just a Tourist go for it "Or Come Here" where you will become Family and by the way John is a Thai Guru on the culture and the best Tours and Deals, He had to call me out on my Tipping as in Thai customs 20 Baht is good money(75cents) Our Highlight was my girlfriend ridding on the Elephant and Jungle trip which he recommended, the look on her face riding bareback was" priceless", They later put the cage on for me. They also down the walk have a family restaurant "Great cheap food" and I rented my moped there also "miss my 125 Honda now". Peace and quite and close to all the excitement of White Sand Beach. WE WILL BE BACK SOON!!!!!
