Sawadee Pee Mai
If your like most people, you probably have a few war wounds and missing brain cells from the events that took place during Songkran.
Despite being in the hottest month of the year and that for weeks the weather has been unbearably hot, Mother Nature had alternative plans for us during Songkran. She joined the celebration in full force offering us thunder, rain and no-shine; all day long.
Staff from Big Blue started our New Year celebration by walking through the streets of Mae Haad. The lanes were full and everyone was splashing and being soaked by copious amounts of water. After being completely soaked, by others and Mother Nature, we took Koh Tao’s notorious ‘yellow brick road’ and made our way to Sairee. Celebrations were had at nearly every dive school, restaurant and beach club. Our favourite must-stop places included Maya Beach Club, Fishbowl, DJL and, lastly, Big Blue. Water slides were built and we witnessed people swimming fully clothed in the ocean, pool and even in an oversized pot (yes, a pot).
The really good news, though, is that fun was had and a New Year has begun. Our sins were washed away and our blessings from Mother Nature were received. Sawadee Pee Mai everyone – we wish you adventure and health for the year ahead!
