Roaming Samui – holiday for a few days

I’m down in Koh Samui for a  little rest and recreation.  It’s been a hectic month that included getting stranded in Singapore when the Suvannabhumi International Airport in Bangkok was closed due to its takeover by protesters.  This led to a 2000 km road trip from Singapore to Bangkok.

I’ve been coming to Samui for 13 years and I always find my way to Chaweng Beach.  Although Chaweng is heavily developed, I still find it one of the more interesting destinations on Samui.  It is still possible to find beachfront hotels in every price range.   And there are enough conveniences to make it a low impact destination.   The “strip” is wall to wall restaurants, stores, fastfood restaurants, retail shops and souvenir shops. But to me, this is ok.  It’s a lot of fun to walk the strip and people watch.

In the next week, I will report on restaurants that I visited and information about the hotel where I stayed.

  2. It was our first wedding anniversary and I wanted to take my wife for a holiday to Thailand. But choosing a good hotel in a new place was difficult. So, I decided to surf internet and looked for an option available. I came across Eden Rock Villa (http://www.edenrok.com/), which was a villa near Samui Beach. The location was breathtaking and the villa had superb interiors. I booked the villa immediately, and you won’t believe that staying at such a place made our holiday more exciting.
