    Hi Gabriel, not really sure whether you reply to comments on old videos, but here goes :). I'll be going to Koh Phangan next week and I am also planning on renting a motorbike, but from what I've gathered online most rentals require your passport as a deposit. This is not something I want to give, so I was wondering how (and perhaps where) you've rented your motorbike on Koh Phangan. Thank you, love your videos btw!

    My wife and I was here a few years back, we stayed at Sabai beach in a lovely bamboo hut on the beach. My favourite Thai island is koh Tau, I took my oasis dive lessons there. Good times , rather great times!

    I wasn't aware either , however these elephants are beaten into submission and tortured in order to become obedient . Their spirits have to be broken in order for them to become tame enough to ride . Please don't ride them people ! It's beyond cruel. There are plenty of videos on youtube showing the horrors of this practice.
