The Koh Phangan Daily Routine

We’ve settled in to a very pleasant routine here on Koh Phangan. We wake about 8am and get ready to head to breakfast with Nonna and Poppa (and this morning Richard and Lucy too since they arrived yesterday.) Sometimes we head down the beach…

…and sometimes we head up the hill.

We eat muesli and yoghurt, fruit, pancakes, omelette, cornflakes, toast and drink coffee (of varying standards.) Following breakfast we head back to the resort and get changed into swimming gear and do the suncream battle with the kids. Then it’s swimming time! We usually head to the pool as the tide is quite low in the mornings.

Our new digs. (Still on Koh Phangan.)

Pool Time

After swimming we get lunch supplies from the 7-11 and eat sandwiches on the bungalow balcony. Lunch is followed by quiet time inside away from the sun. Ed eventually falls asleep and Dave and Lil head off to do some school work (journal or mathletics or reading.)

Ed wakes up around 4 or 5 and there might be time for a dip in the sea or some sand castle action or another pool swim before showers and dressing for sunset pre-dinner drinks and nibbles on Nonna and Poppa’s balcony.

Then it’s off to dinner where we eat yummy Thai food (and Lil has a pizza or burger and Ed has plain rice) and drink Thai beer to the sound of the waves nearby (or music of varying quality.) By this time it’s about 9pm and we go back to the bungalow for bedtime. Ready to do it all again tomorrow!

    Ha–sounds very similar to our daily routine during our recent 2wks at Haad Yao too, including Mathletics and journal work! We had a scooter though and went out for lunch as part of our routine followed by ice creams at 7-11! Love KPN!
