Diving in April

by trevndebs

1st time to Samui but been to Phuket many times.
Are there lots of dive operators about?
Dive trips in Phuket take around 2 hours to collect guests from hotels before we board the boat at the departure point, is it quicker in Samui? ( I do hope so!!)
Is this time of year for diving? ( any whale sharks, Mantas?)
Thanks and Happy New Year to you all!

Yes, there are plenty of dive operators here in Samui. Diving is good almost all year round (exception is November). Heard that if you are lucky you can see sharks at Sail Point but not sure what type.

Happy New Year to you too.

Travel Tips for Ko Samui

Big Buddha

by Kivi

The most amazing thing in Samui was the Big Buddha Statue. The Big Buddha is 15 meters tall and it was built in 1972 by the local society.

WOW! Here in Finland people doesn´t show their religion that much...

Go and see the statue and the temple area.

Magic Gardens & Waterfall

by SamuiDean

Well worth a visit if you fancy touring the interior of the island. It is situated on one of the highest points of the island. It is a very relaxing place to visit well off the beaten track.

It is also situated close to Peak Eye View restaurant which at over 600 metres above sea level offers great views of the Samui coastline.

The area is easy to reach. There is a tarmac road all the way although the road is steep in places so be prepared to get into 1st or 2nd gear when driving up there.

Drive along the main ring road between Nathon and Lamai and you will see a signpost.

Bigger bikes on samui

by breakz

I went to Samui earlier this year, and it seems that most people there get around on scooters, costing 150-200 baht each per day, but you can barter the price a bit if you're going to have them for a few days, you have to barter the price on EVERYTHING in Thailand. I wanted something a bit more powerful than a scooter though, so I went looking for bigger bikes. I hired a Honda XR 250 Dirt bike for 500 baht a day, and it was a good bike, especially for exploring the mountain paths, but it was very expensive, so I ended up taking it back and getting a Honda NSR 150 for the rest of my stay at a more reasonable 350 Baht a day. Not a massively powerful bike, but I managed to get 75 mph out of it! I saw some people on CBR400s, and even a couple of ZX7Rs and bigger CBRs about. Theres a big bike hire shop near the entrance to Chaweng beach where you can hire just about anything, but I wouldnt reccomend it unless you really know what you're doing with a big bike, because Samui's roads are awful... potholes, cracks, waterlogged roads, dust, and terrible drivers all make it rather dangerous, and you have to keep your wits about you all the time! That said, there really is no other way to explore the island properly except by motorbike, just dont get sunburnt like I did! Have fun and be careful =)

Best Thai Food (and Drinks!) on the island

by siprell about BBC (Big Buddha Café)

If you are into high quality thai grub, you must check this place out. It has changing menues, a great location and view and one of the best mai-thais I ever had. Definetly worth a trip! Hmm. The red snapper was superb!

See Big one!!! and laugh

by zazatann

Located about 1 km south out of Lamai, these are two famous granite stones that stand out amongst the numerous outcroppings dotted along Samui’s coastline. The rocks named Grandfather and Grandmother respectively are shaped like male and female genitalia and said to be the origin of the ‘Mui people”. Once on the rocks the scenery is spectacular but getting there entails running a gauntlet of tacky souvenir and gift shops.
