First trip to Ko Samui

by johnbook

Never been there before, so my wife and I were wondering if anyone could recommend somewhere nice to stay, around 3 stars? We'd like to be near a beach, some restaurants. We're not backpackers.

Any other recommendations for Ko Samui nubes?

Cheers.

Hi

We've stayed at the Zazen Boutique resort & spa.
It's a boutique resort, so the price is also above average, but what you get is definately way above average !
see my tip on his hotel : http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/114fff/16186f/3/

I'm also about to go to Samui for the first time and have just booked the Chaweng Regent. Says its 4 stars, but more like 3.5. Rooms to go for are deluxe regency wing or premier (premier more expensive). Have done a bit of research and the location is very central in Chaweng on the beach. The resort is old, so the buildings themselves look old its been there a while, but the gardens and facilities look really good - it has two pools, day spa and restaurants, the rooms look alright the deluxe regency a little dated, the premier more expensive look really nice. I am staying in deluxe regency. The resort reminds me of ones in Bali like the Mandira and Bali Rani if you have been to Bali before.

Old Fishing Boat Trip to Koh Som

by neurochic

In Bophut Village, you can rent an old fishing boat to take you out fishing in the Gulf of Thailand and then you travel to a deserted island called Koh Som where with your fishing boat captains you grill the fish up that you caught and have a Thai lunch. Sounds like a lot of fun right? Not really. The truth of the matter is that you go on this old raggedy boat which is actually kind of cool but if you get sea sick you definitely will on this boat. You spend about 2 hours out in the hot sun and you catch really nothing. Only the fishing boat captain catches anything and what he does catch it is the size of your palm. What is cool though is when you get to the actual island of Koh Som. Koh Som is deserted now but it used to have a bar on the island which you still can see the remnants of and plans were to make it an island for tourism as well, but it was too close to nearby beaches and the noise was too loud that already established expensive resorts on the other islands complained and Koh Som was left deserted. Your fishing boat captain will take you all around the island and you will actually take a sea kayak to another side of the island to explore where there used to be a bridge and where plumbing was set up for bungelows and you will actually see some deserted bungelows. You will be trekking over alot of deserted area with thorn bushes and hard gravel and a lot of washed up glass and junk on the island so make sure you wear some good water sandals to protect your feet. You will need to swim part of the way and if you aren't a good swimmer I wouldn't advise doing this part of the adventure because you have to swim in some choppy water where there are some high rocks that can really bash your knees and you have to make sure to keep your feet up so as not to damage any coral. Definitely have your tetanus shot if you plan on exploring the beach.

Rent a Scooter on Koh Samui

by JappaJukebox

Although we were at first reluctant to rent a scooter because of all the warnings and dangers we read online, we eventually grew tired of going through the whole negotiation process every time we needed transport. We also saw so many other farangs zooming around that we decided to get our own scooter. We rented one from our hotel for 250 Baht per day excluding fuel, which as I understand is a bit more expensive than the street shops, but we didn't have to hand in our passports as collateral and we had safe parking at night at the hotel.

It takes an hour or so to get a feel for what the traffic is going to do and if you are expecting impending doom around every corner and can live with it, you should be doing OK. Easy does it and common sense will get you through the rough spots.

Watch out for loose sand, water filled potholes and reckless construction lorries and your eyes locking on to the girl's butt on the scooter in front of you. You don't need that kind of distraction right now.

If you are not used to scooters, be careful not to burn your leg on the exhaust pipe when you get off or park the scooter. It happens so often that there is a name for it - a Samui tattoo

Fuel is available all around the island from private vendors who will pump a liter or two out of a big drum with old style pumps with glass reservoirs. Prices are around 100 Baht per liter if you don’t care to haggle about it.

Try it as an alternative to taxis and songtheaws. If you do come unstuck and spend half your leave in hospital nursing some major roasties, rest assured you will not be the first or the last to do so.

Beach Treats

by neurochic about Vendors At Chaweng Beach

Ok while on Chaweng Beach you must find the vendor that sells corn on the cob and pineapples right off of her portable grill. I know this sounds simple but in my journeys what I have found is the most delicious food is that which is local. Basically she smothers the corn in liquid butter and then grills it to perfection and then salts it and places it on a stick for you to enjoy. I swear it is the juiciest and sweetest corn you ever tasted. And being a Midwestern girl it was a nice treat that reminded me of home. This same woman also will sell pineapple that she will cut right in front of you, slice into slices, and then she places it in a ziplock bag and gives you a toothpick to pick up the pieces. On the hot Thai days, the pineapple is the perfect refreshment. To make things even better, the corn and the pineapple will be roughly about $1.

Paradise In Thailand

by daRkshaDo

Samui and it's beaches are wonderful, but if you want to get a real taste of beautiful islands and stunning scenery, the take a trip to Angthong National Marine Park. Located an hours speedboat ride from Samui, this group of 42 islands is considered some of the most spectacular in Thailand.

Tickets cost around 600baht for the day trip which includes lunch and a couple of activities. Best place I saw for deals where on Chaweng beach where the guys in the tourist huts promote this and other Samui tours.

It's an early start as you're collected from your hotel and taken to Bophut pier for the hour long speedboat ride.

When you arrive, you land on a perfect white sandy beach, surrounded by high cliffs and palm trees. Then it's into a kayak and you're given an hour or so to canoe your way around the islands. BTW, life-jackets are provided! When you get back, you get time to chill for a while before lunch is server - typically Thai food (rice, chicken, veg and salads).

Then, back into the boat for a short trip over to the Emerald Lake. It takes a fair amount of effort to climb up and through the rocks to the viewing platform - but believe me, it's well worth it. After that, if you're feeling adventurous, climb further still and you'll reach a second view point, but this time you get a fantastic panoramic view across all the islands! BTW - you can't swim in the Emerald Lake as it's a nature reserve and is protected.

Once back in the boat, you're off to a shallower area for the snorkeling. All the equipment is provided by the tour guides - they even throw in bread so you can feed the fish!

Finally it's back on the boat and time to relax once again as you head back to Bophut pier.

Tip: Flip slops etc are great for the beaches etc, but if you're planning on seeing the Emerald Lake, then slightly better footwear is recommended just to help with the climbing.
