    Fishermans Village Bophut

    This is a bit of unusual tip for this catergory as it really doesn`t fit, but I really enjoyed the afternoon/early evening my wife & I spent exploring Fishermans Village.

    We started with a little exploring then being Australian stopped at the Billabong Surf Club for a bite to eat then went for a walk along Bophut Beach then stopped at a restaurant overlooking the beach called Shadies(excellent venue especially for a romantic dinner)for a few beers before some more exploring then a Taxi back to Chaweng.

    As I said an unusual tip but a really good relaxing way to while away the time.

    Ko Samui, producing over 3,000,000 coconuts a month, is known as the island of coconuts, and harvesting the commodity requires special skills. Visit one of the local houses that offer the opportunity to discover the islanders’ unique way of life and daily work, making for a memorable introduction to Ko Samui. Learn how the pig-tailed monkey becomes a member of the family and watch a demonstration of how man and monkey work as a skilled team picking and collecting coconuts.

    Well worth a visit if want to escape the hustle and bustle of Chaweng. A good place to visit in the evening. There are many fine restaurants and bars situated along the beach. I can recommend The Happy Elephant, Smile House, La Sirene, and Starfish and Coffee.

    All the restaurants offer good food with great views across to Koh Pha-Ngan.

    I found the local people very friendly. Also checkout the local pancake man on his moped. He offers a great selection of pancakes for 20baht.
