I can remember vividly the 32 hours we spent crossing Laos and Thailand, in 40-degree Celsius heat, to reach the much-lauded Ko Chang in the Gulf of Thailand.
We rode on the back of a ute with 30 others, hitched a ride with a Thai rock fan, caught a train, ate red-bean paste buns on a never-ending bus ride and then hopped on a boat to finally reach the island.
The first day we wondered what the brown muck in the water was, the second we knew it was sewage - we left immediately.
