I decided it would be very cool to spend the day sailing around Koh Samui. I booked a sailing boat (Viva 2) through Sailing in Samui. We ended up Sailing to Ko Phangan, a near by island, the plan was to do some snorkelling on the way but the day did not go as planned…..

We hired a small 2-4 person Yacht and went sailing to Ko Phangan, which was supposed to be our first stop for lunch, but that went downhill after I went to the bathroom on the boat.
It was dark(ish) room which was really hot and had stale air, suffice to say that was the end of my ideal day of Sailing.
The rest of the way to Koh Phangan was spent laying on my back with my eyes closed trying to sleep off feeling so sea sick!
We finally stopped of at Koh Pangan, which is where I started to feel better after a yummy Thai lunch. After lunch we went and relaxed on the beach and had a bit of a swim.
The ocean was getting pretty rough due to a coming storm so while we were swimming it felt like we were getting dragged out far from shore, the tide was super strong!
We decided to head back an hour early, as I just wanted to “get the sail back to Samui out of the way!” The weather had made a turn for the worst! It was stormy and very wavy. The instant we are back on the boat, I felt really sick again.
I tried really hard but I ended up throwing up a lot and had to go lay in the cabin and try to sleep on the way back. Which seemed to take months! (it was only a few short hours)..
I was really upset with myself as the scenery on the way to the island and back was really beautiful.
We had spent a lot of money to go sailing to Ko Phangan and had not been able to enjoy it but it was nice to experience it and next time ill make sure to take sea sick tablets!!
