Special Samui Christmas & New Years!

Well, we have reached our last stop on the east side of Thailand and our time on the three islands have gone very quickly! Our last island is Koh Samui and is the bigger island out of the three. After probably the smoothest and quickest ferry journey we have had so far, our first destination in Samui was Chaweng which is the lively part of the …

Cattle prods and an Australian with a past

... this bit of land and designed this place. I have only left the island once since and that was to renew my Australian passport"

Right now the Samui Reef is fully occupied by a group of "geezers" from London's East End. They sound as if they have just stepped off the set of Eastenders. They are here on a Muay Thai (Thai boxing) cum meditation course. None of them would be out of place as one of Ronnie Kray's minders. To a man they have enough tattoos to rival the Bayeux ...

Eleven down, One to go

... who were best friends and always stayed together. One of them had a terrible limp because her leg was injured logging and her other hip had been broken from forced breeding. The previous owners had her chained up and would force male elephants to mate with her and one large elephant broke her hip. So terrible what some of these poor animals had to go through before they were saved by Lek, a wonderful woman who started the park when she was 30. A massive undertaking given ...

Ko Samui - resort island

... eased.

The ship eventually got underway a bit later than the expected 3pm departure as there was a rush of people arriving back from their tours all at the same time. Casual night back in the restaurant for dinner and we sat with a Brisbane couple, and an older couple from Ottowah. An enjoyable chat and lovely meal. $12US per glass for Peter Lehmann Shiraz was a little sad but at least the wine was good.


45 degree heat = sunstroke

... br> We spent the day trying to stay hydrated and in the shade but the oppressive heat was obviously not the ticket for me. I still got a 2nd degree burn on my nose then proceeded to spend approx. the next 18 hrs in bed.
That being said, Koh Samui IS beautiful. Stay away from the tourist **** and it is absolutely lovely. Our hostel/bungalow home is very clean and well maintained with a friendly staff on site.

    Great Stay!

    We stayed six nights at Lamai Buri Resort as we wanted to be somewhere quiet and relaxing for the Christmas period and this is what we got.

    The beach was a couple of minutes away by foot and was very peaceful, our pool was refreshing and the restaurants and bars had a relaxed vibe to them as well. It was also nice to be away from shop owners trying to persuade you into their shop all the time and taxi drivers beeping their horns every few seconds trying to get custom like in Chaweng. However the location had its lively parts and was fun if wanted:)

    The location as quickly mentioned before was much better than we thought it was going to be as right in front of our hotel was a gym which was lovely to see and a restaurant which was part of the gym which served up clean, healthy food. Further on down the road we found a quiet English bar which had all the Premier League Football games on to Aaron's satisfaction, an amazing Indian restaurant, karaoke bar for Robyn, a few more cool little bars and a Thai Boxing ring on the side of the street where they had fights on every Saturday night!

    The only slight downside to the our stay here was the room. The walls were paper thin so you could hear everything from outside in the corridor, we were on the lowest floor and had no windows in our room and the tv lost all this English channels after the second day, but as we paid the lowest price the hotel had for a room we couldn't really grumble about this as we didn't mind that much and we were always out for the most part of the days there.

    We would 100% return!
