    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!

    It’s also the site of one of the techno music world’s most infamous monthly parties. The Full Moon Party is held during every full moon on Koh Phangan’s Haad Rin Nok Beach. The rave attracts nearly 30,000 partiers every month who revel in the pounding electronic techno music and dance on the beach beneath the moon’s rays. While local officials have tried to control ...

    ... Lamai beach, this tourist attraction is famous for it’s rocks depicting, his and her 'bits'. At first we thought they were rather underwhelming in the flesh, size isn’t everything I guess but as you can see our photos did flatter and enhance the real things...... Graham was fascinated and maximised the opportunity to take many photos...

    ... the most disgusting beaches we have both ever seen. Covered in rubbish and uncared for it was almost embarrassing.We passed the Big Buddha which is meant to be an attraction so we stopped to look. It didn't look very genuine but more there for tourists. Nothing like we'd seen in Bangkok. We began to wonder if coming to Samui was a mistake as it really doesn't seem to have much to offer. Feeling disheartened, we decided we wouldn't look for different accommodation as the whole idea ...

    ... came, and it rained for ages! So we sat on the big comfy chairs painting nails, looking at Bangkok, whilst drinking beers and cocktails. N.W tried to get a discounted kayak but failed, so went in the sea anyway in the rain with N.M. They were out there for absolutely ages and before we knew it it was gone 4! Cerys and me then went in the sea with the boys and we all went snorkelling. The coral around ...

    We got off the ferry and were greeted by the insane midday heat! We got a taxi to our hotel which was a pretty hairy ride. They all dart around pretty much constantly over taking cars and scooters, with so many near misses (I found it hard to relax). When we got to out hotel we went straight for the beach to check out our surroundings and get some cocktails. We were staying on Chaweng beach which is the most touristy part of the island and I think has ...
