We stayed in Shiralea Backpackers Resort in the quieter North Side of the island near Haadyao, (the full moon party is on sunrise beach in the south).
The resort was lovely, beds were comfy with full backpack size lockers. It had a great bar with ‘shot bell’ rules, pool table, amazing food, 24h swimming pool, tv area, massage hut and plenty of evening activities like BBQ’s and bar party’s to keep us going.
We didn’t really need to leave but there were plenty of things close by like total wipeout, and a beach 2min walk away. There was a couple nice bars and places to eat along the beach too.
This was also the last stop of my Ultimate Thailand group tour. We had an amazing time together, laughing, drinking, singing. I have no doubt that we formed some lasting friendships and I can’t wait to bump into them all again some time in the near future.
