TravelPod Member ReviewsFirst Residence Hotel Ko Samui
This was our first hotel in Koh Samui and we were based just outside the lively part of Koh Samui, in Chaweng.
The hotel was actually much nicer than we expected it to be and our room was really modern and quite spacious. Our hotel had it's own private beach........
We were only a ten minute walk into the main street in Chaweng which was probably the most westernise area we had been to in a long time and was the party area in Koh Samui but also had many other shops including massage parlours, shops selling fake clothing, perfumes and watches, suit shops, McDonalds, Burger King and everything else you can imagine!
We were glad we were staying in the quieter area of Chaweng as we were close to everything that we needed and the hotel was prefect for us!

Now that we were mobile we just had to get out there. At first I was a bit hesitant, even a bit nervous, of taking our red Ferrari out on its maiden ride, but soon got into the swing of things. Man, it was a blast ! We went to the Big C supermarket to stock up with some stuff. We had to be careful not to buy too much remembering that we were on a scooter and not a car with a big boot for all the bounty. We ended up with the ...
As we rented the bike out for another day, we started by searching for waterfalls.. Epic fail! Could not find them anywhere! Haha to be fair as we climbed an almighty hill (the mountain) the view from the very top was pretty cool. Coming back down was scary and praying the breaks would hold out! We pop over to see another big ass Budda, its all gold and sits on its own Island! Its pretty cool Next mission beach!! Off we trot ...
... a real shame, but we can't do everything.
Will have to start preparing for Muscat tomorrow, temperature will be similar to here, low 30s and quite humid.
The hotel is beautiful, but quite isolated, which is why it was so nice to have a car. Tonight we'll just go back to the cafe on the beach for dinner. Cheap and ...
Due to my research the previous day I knew that there were multiple trains which ran from Bangkok Hua Lamphong train station to Chumphon (where I would catch the ferry to Koh Phangan) on a regular basis. The one that I was aiming for was the 08:05 train the next day. That would give me a chance to recover from the past ten days but would still put me at my destination around mid-afternoon.
However, I was informed by one of the ...
