I was only here for a very short time on this trip compared to my first two. I still managed to see many of my favourite spots, as well as a couple new ones.
My days were spent swimming and suntanning. At night I did go to the Reggae Pub two times and also went to a kareoke bar (no I didn't sing), for a little change. During my time once again at the Reggae Pub, I ran into old friends and met some new ones. I also went to many of the same restaurants to meet some of these people.
Fondest memory: The main reasons I keep coming back to Samui now are my friends that live there, and the fact that I meet many new ones each trip. So if you like to meet new poeple, I defintely would recommend Samui, I know I will come back.
This is a tough one, since this was my first trip I let my brother show me the way through most things. However, I guess I could blend a few activities together, until after my next trip and then I can answer this a little better.
On that note, I would have to say that the beaches and nightlife were tops on my list this time. Chaweng beach is great and it was a very nice place to swim and stay on. The bars including the Green Mango, but especially the Reggae Pub, will bring me back to Koh Samui forever.
Fondest memory: The beach, food, people, sites, parties, bar scene, and most of all the Thailand atmosphere. I plan to go back every five months from now on, so I will keep this list updated for sure.
Favorite thing: There are a huge number of coconut trees on Samui (not a native plant, coconut trees were introduced by the Chinese) and your can often find them on the beach. We took a couple back to our hotel where I proceeded to open them. I had a fairly sturdy diving knife and it still took me a good 15-20 mins to get to the centre of the coconut. Once inside you get natural coconut milk and un-factory-ised coconut flesh (is that the right word?). It was hard work but a useful skill in case I ever get stranded on a desert island

get in touch with a higher authority of yourself.
Through channeling your spiritual companions
who are always around,
you get more information than is accessible for you

causes of your problems,
to ask questions that can help your personal development
or you would like your chakras read,
a reading may provide clarity and
insight into yourself.
You will find in the streets everywhere,
places to have your laundry done at
35 Bahts a kilo.
Clean cloths that I don’t have to wash myself….
what a smile that brings to my face!
Just a tip,
since they mix your laundry
with someone else’s,
make a list of what you have
and go over it with the person responsible
when leaving it to be washed.
And then when you pick it up,
go over it again.
It happened to me
when picking up my cloths,
that if I had not done my list,
I would have left without my black
Gap t-shirt, which was still being dried
with someone else’s cloths.

Fondest memory: One of the great things about so-called developing countries is the old cars you see around the place. This fabulous old Merc would have been consigned to the scrapheap years ago in Europe but it is still running strong in Thailand. Wouldn't this be a great vehicle to cruise around in?
