    I have a friend who’s stayed there and loved it. I didn’t know you could get a day-pass. Interesting.

    I like the idea of a resort day pass, especially if one is on a cruise. That’s what we should have done instead of a bus tour when our recent Azamara Southeast Asia cruise stopped at Ko Samui, an island in the Gulf of Thailand.

    Great tip! As we are on a budget that doesn’t allow for much luxury day passes are a great option.
