My ‘return to Koh Samui’ trip featured on TravelMail website

From a great trip to the Baan Taling Ngam Intercontinental Resort on the Thai island of Koh Samui earlier in the year, my feature is now published on the TravelMail website. It was a great opportunity to re-visit the island after a 15-year gap and compare and contrast the luxury resort with my last visit…as a backpacker staying in a beach hut and¬†clutching a copy of Alex Garland’s book The Beach under my arm!
