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!

We arrived at Kho Tao, but it appears that our sister dive boat did not know where we ...

Sonntag bin ich nach Koh Samui geflogen. Meinen Flug war nicht direkt wie die Gondhia’s. Also musste ich einen Stunde und halb auf einen Bus setzen, dann einen Studen und half auf einer Schiff und schliesslich einen stunde und vierzig Minuten auf einen Bus nach das Hotel. Der Blick von unserem ...
... or explore Koh Samui. Tuesday night we went to an area called Fisherman's Village. It's described as being a quaint area with a nice sunset, shops, and restaurants. Sure there were shops selling all kinds of souvenirs, but the restaurants we saw were quite expensive and somewhat similar to North American pricing, which is a real turnoff for us since we enjoy really cheap and really good street food. We ended up at an Italian restaurant that ...

Our friend popped round to speak with Mike about the website. Mike suggested he join David, his wife and Mike to discuss the site. Keir tried to show him what a paid Google advert looked like. he used Agoda, Koh Phangan as an example. Mike could not get his head around it at all. Keir looked stunned at the lack of very basic internet knowledge. After 5 minutes he wanted to shoot himself!
David asked me 'I have a MAC so can I ...
