      Chewang beach bungalows.

      by TimC55 Online Now Mar 3, 2014 at 8:36 AM

      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 :)

      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!

      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?

      Baby goes to Ko Samui

      by lovinoz Online Now Sep 28, 2013 at 5:53 PM

      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?

    • Which is the best place to stay in Koh Samui in June - July

      by macarenaplus Online Now Jun 5, 2013 at 12:04 AM

      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.

      Any suggestions???

      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?

      Thank you

      by Dav53 Online Now Apr 8, 2013 at 1:09 PM


      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.

      by charlie1784 Online Now Mar 10, 2013 at 10:18 PM

      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.

      2 weeks in Ko Samui around September 2013

      by TDav Online Now Dec 13, 2012 at 7:03 PM


      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.
