Trip Advisor review for transport in from Koh Tao, Thailand to Penang, Malaysia: Really dangerous bus ride on poorly lit/windy roads, lots of drunk bus drivers w no regard for safety, but much cheaper than going by plane or train
Me: Did u say much cheaper??? *books* *almost dies but doesn't* *feels validated*
Don’t worry folx, we made it to Penang unscathed - despite the perilous 8h night ferry with beds about 6ftx1ft in diameter and seas that were anything but calm, followed by a never-ending mini-bus ride sitting next to a man who had what I unfortunately venture to have been a very illegal exotic animal he was transporting in a box. Not ideal.
But for the purposes of this post, I think I’ll be writing a little differently. See, nothing I’m about to share has any flow as one solid story, but it’s all worth sharing individually (in my completely unbiased opinion). So instead of forcing an awkward timeline, today you get bullet points.
In regards to our dives, they were in no way as amazing as those on Koh Tao in terms of visibility, but they were still pretty great, and now we’ve got 15 dives under our belts!
Thanks for reading – until next time lovelies!
