Go Kayaking for a day in hidden caves and discover beautiful beaches at the Angthong National Marine Park. Experience Diving on an overnight trip to Koh Tao aboard the unique 27 meter Dive boat. For those not into diving, snorkeling trips are also available and don't worry if your traveling with children they are welcome to come along. All your Diving and Snorkeling needs can be found at this shop. Prices are comparable to other shops on the island.
Question: What’s the most prevalent danger to watch out for when traveling abroad? Snakes? Parasites? The Sun? Answer: Traffic. It's unfortunate but this is also the case on Ko Samui.
You have three primary choices for transportation while on the island – mopeds, jeeps, and motor taxis. I tried all three and I feel that the motor taxis are the way to go (there is no way I would suggest a motor taxi for Bangkok but for the island it's not a bad alternative.) As for the drivers - those guys rule! It's their island and they know the roads like the back of their hands.
Jeeps are relatively expensive to rent, (still inexpensive by U.S. standards) but the potential liability far outweighs the convenience. You’re not perceived as a tourist when wheeling around in a Jeep, you are perceived as a RICH tourist. Enough said.
Mopeds are fun but my observation was that one driver/rider out of five had bloody knees, a broken wrist, or even a more serious injury. Every night I saw some poor dude with bloody bandages trying to make the most of his remaining vacation. (Not the same dude, many different dudes!) It’s not widely publicized but there is an average of 3 to 5 deaths every year from moped accidents on the island, with severe head injuries of ten times that amount. The dirt / mud roads and the multitude of tourists not accustom to yielding to the left (or driving on the left for that matter) are the problems. What complicates this is the lack of helmets as well. (Check out the taxi drivers - they ALL have helmets . . . I wonder why?!) My recomendation is to try all three if you have the time but if you can make use of public transportation, do so.
Big John is a perfect location to dine and watch the sunset.It prides itself on serving some of the finest seafood dishes on Koh Samui.Much of it is locally cought and bought fresh from the market daily.Big John's menu is also "big" so it is easier to ask the waiter what cookin'.The restaurant is a few steps from the beach and it also has a nice play area for kids which makes it's perfect for families. The fish with chillies ,Tom-yum seafood, the shrimp cakes (tod mun) ,best seafood platter
and not to forget the big jugs of Margarittas....
G AND G ROCKS
During a day trip of scootering around the island of Koh Samui, we went to see the Grandfather and Grandmother Rocks.
The site was very beautiful and I was able to get a few nice pictures of it. Not only are the "main attractions" beautiful to see, but the whole area is amazing to experience.
The rock formations can be a handfull if you not careful, when they get wet it is very slippery. However, part of the experience is climbing the rocks and getting a better view of the overall site.
If you want to swim here, there is a shallow pool of water that I saw people in, that looked nice. I had already had my morning swim in the ocean that day, so I didn't try it out, but it looked pretty good.
I would hope that people come and see this site as it has historical meaning, as well as it is a different place to see while on Samui, even though it is a bit "touristy".
