Thai Police Officers
Koh Samui is a very popular tourist site, so there is always a concern for public safety. At no time when we were in Koh Samui did we feel unsafe, especially with plenty of law enforcement officers. Many were on motorcycles, or patrolling the ferry landing such as this police officer. It seemed as if this particular officer was used to the crowds, as he took time to smile for each passing tourist!
Say hello to the next one, and get a smile as you pass by! Important Numbers in Koh Samui:
Samui Rescue (Ambulance) 077-421 444
Fire Dept Nathon 106 ou 199
Police : Emergencies 191
Rain Every day
If you are in Thailand you don't have to think about clothing. If you have not enough you can buy on the markets. Thailand is summer all year long. I heard before I need a lots of stuff with me,(Like toiletpaper) but when I was there I saw you can buy everything in the shops. You don't have to worry about. Be sure you have sunblock enough and you bring this staff with you. Thai sunblock are not so good. The other thing is something against the moskitos.
Lamai Town at night
Lamai town has a lots to offer, it is very small.. it just about 500meters long, but it hidden from the main road or from the beach... if u walking to this small town, just dont be shy to ask people where the town is... expacially you walk during the night.
Transportation around the Island
I thought dealing with the
Tuk Tuks & Taxis was bad in
Phuket and Bangkok.
But it seems the further you travel,
the worst it gets.
Like in Puhket,
try asking a Taxi Driver to
put the meter on.
This is unheard of.
From the airport to Lamia,
a 15 minute ride,
they will charge you around 400 Bahts.
We paid 300 Bahts from the Bangkok airport
crossing all the way over town
via the expressway.
A 25 minute ride.
take the liberty to charge you the same.
Chill Out at The Beach
Laying under the hot sun
with a book may get
a bit overwhelming or boring.
But still want to enjoy the sun and sea
without melting under that heat?
Well, go and relax
at Chill Out on Lamai Beach.
Several covered, open huts,
decorated with colorful rugs,
a lean back pillows are
available for you to just….
well, chill out.
Excellent Lounge Music plays
(and take it from this
Lounge Music Queen,
the music is great!!!!)
while you hang out at the beach,
sipping on a cool beer, having a massage,
and if you get hungry they offer plenty to eat.
When the games are on the tube,
the place becomes a beach sports bar.
Main dishes varying from 75-150
and breakfast from 50-130Bahts.
Fresh sea food is offered each day.
If enjoying there happy hour is what you prefer,
special prices for certain drinks are offered,
or you can go for one of their 95 Bahts drinks such as the:
Between the Sheets
Hmmm….sounds like something to indulge in.
Too bad I am not much of a drinker.
But if you had a little too much
of those erotic cocktails to drink,
Robinson Caruso’s style bungalows
are offered at 200-250 Bahts for the night.
Mosquito bites included.
Occasional Bonfire Beach Parties are held
with a Buffet and a laid back atmosphere to
Drum & Bass & Funky Groove spinning
which, all sound pretty cool to me, Dude.
All for 100 Bahts.
Open from12:00 am – 2:00 am
(Dude, get some sleep!!!)
