Koh Samui or Phuket?

by schmechi

We are a group of six male twens and want to spent next winter in Thailand. Which site would you recommend? Partying should be part and parcel of the journey, but we also want to do some sightseeing. None of us is interested to sunbath whole day and we definitely do not want to be "captured" in club areas all the time.

So what do you recommend? Or do you recommend other sites (also outside of Thailand)?

Re: Koh Samui or Phuket?

by 2Adventure

Hello,

Partying is available almost everywhere and you will not be limited.

I think you would do quite well in Thailand. How many months do you plan on staying in the country? Thailand is pretty cheap to travel around so you could plan a trip that takes you to more locations inside the country. My first trip to Thailand was also in Phuket - however, I prefer the islands or smaller locations in order to fully soak in the adventure. So, my suggestion would of course be Koh Samui - safe and easy to learn the Island and navigate yourself.

Just land - grab some MOPEDS and your gang of adventures will be smiling the whole time.

You can fly too Koh Samui from Bangkok Airport via Bangkok Airways or Thai airways and both from the International airport.

Take a look at a few websites online to see the various activities that you can do on the island (martial arts, paint ball, jungle canopy you ride, atv, motorcross), most of the adventure is done at the coast by taking boats to other islands close by. I also have a group of friends coming the end of January to spend time adventuring around the islands here and near Koh Samui.

If you decide to focus on phuket I would still suggest that you take a trip to the other islands such as Koh Phi Phi and or focus some time on Krabi and take boats from there.

I currently live on Koh Samui, however I am a new resident (few months now), but I will do my best to help answer any questions that you might have. I have traveled all over Thailand having spent some time in the following locations:

Bangkok
Chiang Mai
Pai
Ao Nang - Krabi
Koh Phi Phi
Phuket

Travel Tips for Ko Samui

Massage

by phil_uk_net

Not just Samui but everywhere in Thailand is it possible to get great massages for hardly any money. Whether you want a hard Thai-style workout of something more soothing everything is available!
I was chatting to these girls for a while but didn't indulge myself on this particular occasion.

First House convenient store.

by Princess_Emily about First House convenient store.

Located at First House Bungalows, this new looking and very clean shop has, in addition to all the standard basic supplies, an assortment of whiskey, cognac and other spirits. Postscards and M&M's. average prices compared to other shops.

The Most beautiful airport in the whole world!

by Kivi

When arriving Koh Samui by plane, especially if arriving from Bangkok, the beauty and easy-going feeling of the island fullfills you already in the airport.

Instead of normal cold, unpleasant ugly passenger factories, Koh Samui Airport is full of sunshine, trees and flowers.

Everything tells you that RELAX!

BBQ

by JoJo_of_the_west

At first I was confused by the use of BBQ in the restaurant advertisements in town and along the beach. BBQ simply means “grilled”. By far it is the best way to go. I had several delicious meals that averaged 350 bt. Each. A typical dinner consisted of grilled snapper, grilled shrimp, calamari, vegetables, and Thai coffee or tea. Just walk along the beach at Chaweng or Lamai and there are dozens of places to dine.
