    a fisherman

    All down the roads of the island and the beaches you will see locals catching little crabs or fishing. There is alot of fishing in between beaches where the ground is very rocky. They are all nice people and wont mind showing you their catch or even speak to you if you can communicate. I didnt see any special fish.
    If you are more into fishing then take one of the night time fishing trips with the local fishermen. I have no idea on the price and how often you can do that, but i did see fishing boats in teh water every night. ANyways i know that its possible for people to go on this fishing trip. All around the island people will be able to give you info on it. Just ask!

    If you have a motorbike or bicycle on the island then you definitly should check out how the locals live. If you go South on the island you will see random turn offs from the main dirt road, just take all of those and you will end up at little "villages" i guess you could say. Wherever i go i always like to see how the Locals live and what not, so if you are into it, definitly worth a look.....

    Take a look at the pics here.....

    Hanging out in the water of Ao Niu Na Nok

    I'm so glad that I rented a bike and explored the beaches in the south of Ko Samet. They are deserted, have beautiful white sand and free of package tourists....
    The beach that I liked the most was Ao Kiu Na Nok.
    We had the beach to ourselves for about an hour and finally a few French guys showed up.....
