Ring Road Walk around Koh Samui – An invitation from Des Gillet!
We are planning another “Ring Road Walk” on 7th February 2016, it’s about 52 kms & our times usually range between 7 & 9 hours.
Our start & finish point is “The One Way Pub”, on the outskirts of Lamai & the start time is 7am.
We go anti-clockwise by Chaweng, Bophut, Maenam, Bang Po & Nathon, facing the traffic. It’s not the safest road in the World, so we all have to be aware of the traffic. It’s a good idea to wear bright coloured clothing, so the drivers can see us easily, most of the day will be spent walking in single file, as the traffic can be quite heavy.
It will be a fun day, it’s free & open to all-comers, there are many little shops on route, so you can buy any food or drink you may need & when we finish, Graham, mine host at the One Way Pub, will have some nice cold beer for us at his usual low prices.
The only rule we have is that is strictly a walk, no running, so if you’ve got a comfortable pair of trainers (blisters can spoil your day), come & join us for a great day.
