So I think I've covered just about everything I can about our trip to Thailand with Pandora. We've looked at the Pandora Factory, the Mandarin Oriental Bangkok, a Tuk Tuk ride through the streets of Bangkok and even a look at the airline that got us to Thailand. I think it's about time we took a little time talking about Koh Samui and the reason we were there. In short, we were on the island to celebrate one of Pandora's most prestigious charm collections - Essence. In short, the Essence collection is all about expressing yourself with meaningful and beautiful charms. I now wear the Essence collection bracelet and have memories of the most incredible moments in Thailand, which I wanted to share with you here.

Without further ado, here's a visual diary of our journey in building up our Pandora Essence charm bracelets in Koh Samui. 

Our first night in Koh Samui we sat for dinner in the most beautiful spot at the Four Seasons Koh Samui. On this night we were presented with our first charms from the Pandora Essence Collection - Balance and Wellness

Showcasing the Pandora Wellness Charm, the ladies on the trip took to the beach on Koh Samui to take in an early morning Yoga session. Yoga and jet lag, who knew they'd be such a good mix?

One of the most memorable moments of the trip was visiting the Temple in Koh Samui. To showcase Pandora's Faith charm, we visited the temple with offerings in hand and paid our respects to one of the most beautiful and calming places in the world.

To showcase our sense of Freedom (as well as the charm for Freedom), Pandora took to the high seas. We boarded a yacht at the harbor for Koh Samui and spent the day drifting in the open water. The Four Seasons catered a beautiful lunch and those of us on board were all challenged to set our spirits free and jump from the top of the yacht into the open water. Never a dull moment with Pandora!

Dinner under the stars was used to present us with our Pandora Zodiac charm. Naturally, dining under the stars and a full moon can cause a bit of craziness amongst a group of girls. The night turned into a sing-along event followed by a jump in the pool. Truly a night to remember!
