Koh Samui Day Trips: Angthong National Marine Park Day Trip

Here comes the most interesting part of my Koh Samui trip – Angthong National Marine Park Day Trip! We were happy and excited. The van picked us up at the hotel lobby at 7.30 am in the morning and reached the pier around 8.20 am. The Angthong tour boat looked like Halong Bay cruise, made of wood but doubled the size.

Although the tour package included breakfast, I just did not feel right and insisted that we should eat something solid at the hotel before we started the journey. Some of my friends turned a deaf ear to my advice. They just drank milk. I bought an instant cup noodles and shared with two of them. I had made the right decision. The breakfast given was just tea, coffee, banana and bread with super sweet artificial jam.

I do not have beautiful photos of Anthong National Marine Park here because we were not able to reach the island. The weather was not good and the waves were too strong. We had already sailed through the ocean for about an hour but the boat started to swing left and right in the middle of the ocean. Two of my friends vomited badly on the boat. The thrown up foods splashed on others. That was bad and disgusting but we could not help in that situation. Everyone was scared and sick. I was not feeling well and wanted to vomit too. A lesson learned. We should take medicine that prevents seasick before boarding and bring along some plastic bags.
