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)?
Any one Knows where i can buy Join Ticket From koh samui to Aonang?... Or transfer by minivan maybe?... I have problem to find tranfer from chaweng beach koh samui to aonang beach krabi.
is it better to find acomodation while i visit koh samui as i go along..?or better prebook were im goin?
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?

Hello! We just arrived in Ko Samui after a week on the mainland. We checked into a resort hotel in the northwest corner of the island that is pretty far removed from any services on the island ring road. We need to do laundry and the hotel charges an arm and a leg to do laundry for us. Sorry, I am not paying 50 baht to wash one pair of underwear, that is ridiculous. Does anyone know of a reasonably-priced laundry service? We would be fine taking a taxi to drop off and pick up, but if a service can deliver that would be great. Thank you for your advice!
My boyfriend and I are travelling to Bangkok in August for a couple of nights then getting a bus and ferry to koh samui (travelling on a budget) was wondering if anyone had done this before and if it was ok?
Also we have been told by a friend to not pre-book the hotel and find one when we get there, same question really, is this ok to do? dont want to be sleeping on the beach!
has anyone been to either the one in lamai or chaweng? have looked at both and headed abit more towards the lamai one
any recomendations from people that have trained at either would be much appreceted
Would appreciate a little help here. My wife and a Thai woman friend (each over 40 years old) want to stay in Koh Samui about 5 days at the end of April. They are looking for a nice bungalow type beach resort, not big concrete block layout, preferably beach view/access, clean, safe,reasonably priced Thai/Chinese food in resort or nearby, little bit of nightlife and friendly capable staff. Tariff can be up to Baht4000-4500. Does such a place exist? Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Feeling a bit lost here. Last time we were in KS was 1986. Understand there's been a bit of development since then! Thanks
Hi, any health issues in Koh Samui we should be aware of?
we have decided to visit Ko Samui from April 19 to April 23. We are looking for a resort, and can be slightly flexible on budget.
We were considering villas either in Anantara or Six Senses resort.
Any suggestions or views please?
Hey Guys, been years since I posted here!
I really want to stay in a nice beach area that has a night life but nothing heavy - I don't want to be walking back down dark allies alone at night though- I see Bo phut seems pretty nice. Any recommendations for a hotel, or suggestions for other areas to stay? - looking to spend around £300 to £500 for two weeks. I'd need aircon :)
