Koh Sukhorn was not the prettiest island in Thailand, but it was still very beautiful and the local friendliness put it over the top! The entire island felt safe and we were welcomed by the locals. What a great experience!
Crossing a border can always be stressful, but when you are in a remote area and someone is trying to rip you off, it becomes even crazier. We did eventually deal with it and slowly settled into southern Thailand over the next couple of days.
