Hi Could anyone recommend a reasonably priced beach bungalow on Chewang beach Koh Samui please?
We have stayed on other Thai islands before and rented nice beach front bungalows, steps from the sand for under £30.00 a night, on Chewang beach they seem to be all around £100.00 a night which is way more than we can afford. We are going to be there for 3 weeks in September. Any help or recommendations will be greatly appreciated :)
Hi there just wondering if anyone can recommend a good place to have a few beauty treatments in chaweng beach and perhaps some pricing thanks
Is it safe there? Are break ins and assaults common? What advice do you have to stay safe? Is everything still bartered for? Is there any unrest there presently? What part of the Northern part of the island is best for an American to live in? Is there an expat community there. Thank you so much for your advice and help!
is it best to get our spirits duty free or buy locally?
My husband to be and I will be travelling to Koh Samui for 12 nights in June 2014. We are not sure where to stay (location or hotel wise). Does anyone have any recommendations, of somewhere beautiful, on the beach, near the action (things to do etc), yet still not too close. I am not sure if this tick list is possible. Happy to be proved wrong...
I am going to koh samui with my girlfriend for 12 nights, we don't drink alchohol, maybe the odd beer. We want to eat thai food in the cheaper places and do a couple of trips. we have paid for our flights and villa. How much spending money do you think we will need. thanks
On New Year's Eve would you go to the island ko samuior the Phuket area? We are traveling from the USA.

I cannot cancel my trip to Thailand, bangkok during dec 2013 .pse tell me how to overcome demonstrations and its effect Thankyou in anticipation
I will be travelling to Bangkok on 25th December and I would like to book an internal flight to Koh Samui from Bangkok. Do you know of any travel agents in Bangkok or Koh Samui where I can book my internal flights. I am based in the London and the internal flight to Koh Samui is very expensive. Please advise.
how do i get the cheapest en safest way to kho phan nan ?(with my heavy suitecase?)
i am staying at Green Canyon Hip & Cheap Resort
127/7 Moo 3 Tambon Maret Koh Samui.
Since we have a car, I was thinking about making a trip from Khao Lak (where we are located) up to Koh Samui - stay there for one night and return the next day.
Time will be early march 2014
So my questions:
What do you recommend to see there during that short time?
What can be left out?
Any recommendations for hotels (or area to stay in)
Best restaurant you were there and would return anytime?
Does the Koh Samui airport have an ATM for cash withdrawals? If so, do you know if it accepts the usual cards with the Plus or Cirrus symbol on the back? Also, what is the limit on each withdrawal?
We are going to Koh Samui with our 7 month old daughter in November and will be staying at the Kandaburi Resort in Chaweng. Hoping you could help answer a few questions:
1 - Is there a place within walking distance to buy Huggies nappies / diapers and if so, is it a reasonable price or should we plan to bring them with us?
2 - Any tips or advice for visiting with an infant?
3 - Have you used a nanny/babysitter in Chaweng, how much did it cost and would you recommend them? (I am thinking my daughter is too young to be left alone with a stranger in another country, but might consider hiring a nanny to travel with us on a day tour with snorkeling, so nanny can hold baby on the boat while we snorkel.)
4 - Can you recommend an affordable place to get a massage? i.e. not one of the resort spas
5 - If we bring our laptop and the hotel charges a lot for WiFi, is there another affordable option to get WiFi on the laptop (buy a dongle with prepaid internet etc)?

We are a party of 18:
3 Families with 2 adults and 2 children (aged 4-9)
2 Families with 2 adults and 1 child (aged 2-3)
We will be on Koh Samui in April 2014 and are looking for either a large villa or 5 bungalows or similar that are very close together so that in the evening the adults can sit out together within close proximity and sight of all the rooms where the children are sleeping. We're wanting to keep the cost down to less than £50 THB2500 per family per night.
Can anyone recommend anything which would be suitable?
how much does it cost by taxi from airport to lamai beach? Can i trust the taximeter or better to discuss the price before? or ask the hotel for pickup service?
if anyone can suggest a good jeep hire in samui as i going for 5 weeks at christmas thanks..
I along with my wife and 1yr baby are planning a trip to Koh Samui in this summer.
Last year I stayed at Bo Phut for honeymoon. It was an excellent place for honeymoon, but fewer dining places.
This time I want to stay at even better place, where I can get more dining options at walking distance, and a seven eleven, must be a beach, where I can walk with my wife n kid, and relax, which must not be crowded.
We are planning to go to koh samui as part of our honeymoon trip, end of june 2013. You guys have any suggestion on the best place to stay? Within the range of 1000bht to 3000bht per night. I don't really mind about the areas, because we can go around Koh Samui by motorbike or car right? As long as there is a place to eat, to do water activities.
Do you know halal restaurant or roadside stall?
myself and a friend (both early 30's) are going to Koh Samui mid June for probably 5 nights, not sure where to stay for a mixture of sunbathing/swimming and fairly lively at night although not major party animals! Ideally beach side and not overly expensive although happy to spend a bit. Any ideas really appreciated.
We are going to Koh Samui in end of April for 2 weeks and wondering if we should stay in Koh Samui for the whole two weeks or move to Koh pa gnan or Koh Tao for half of the holdiays. We do enjoy beach holidays but can't spend all day lying on the beach (we have a 3 years old boy who wil probably not be ok with that option)
Wondering how "difficult" or time wasting it is to go to Koh tao.
I'm still fishing for a good resort. I've made a reservation at Renaissance Koh Samui. I like it...but then started reading more reviews and now...wondering. I want beach, laid back, high end resort (but not overly expensive like the W). Recommends? Also what are some activities you would recommend? Best nightlife? Can I rent a Vespa like scooter? Looking forward to your answers.
Attending a wedding in April on Kou Samui. How will I go purchasing wine etc, and what are pricing and quality of the products.
Spending 7 or so nights in Koh Samui from around 15 July 2013. Looking for a resort that is not where the nightclubs are but not too far away from nightlife and shopping. Walking distance, say max 15 minutes would be ideal. Looking at around $150 AUD per night. Don't fancy something that caters well to children. Would like something with some atmosphere but not party central. We are in our early 40's with no children. Enjoy good food and drinks. Would want to be on the beach in a room with a beach view.
Hi. Myself and my gf are going to koh samui next week. We are going to be there for a few days and then heading to other Islands. Would you recommend pre-booking accommodation before we go? Thanks.
My wife and I are thinking of travelling to Ko Samui in September 2013 for 2 weeks. Does anyone have any suggestions on accomodation, somewhere around mid range in prices. We'd probably prefer right on the ocean if that's possible and preferably not too noisy and not a big hotel.
It would be good if there were restuarants within walking distance. What's the weather like in September? Is there a bit of shopping available (for my wife)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. We have not travelled to Thailand before, we've been to Bali a few times.
I'm flying to koh Samui next February and I kindly ask for some accomodation close Lamai. I've been stayed long term in Samui before but it has been in Maenam and Bang Kao areas; thus I'm looking for a place where a monthly rent is avaiable. Thank you.
I'm thinking about doing a short trip to Samui,su-tue.
I find different forecast on every weather-page...anyone
out there who can tell me what its been like the last few days?
