Operation Koh Samui: The Futility of Travel

THAILAND | Wed, 29 Apr 2015 | By wtarmstrong | Views [752] | Comments [2]

I left my house in Minnesota on December 6 of last year and have pretty much been on the road ever since. I have not set foot in my home country for 116 days, almost one third of a year.    I am currently in Koh Samui, an island in ... Read more >

Koh Samui, Koh Lanta & Krabi

THAILAND | Fri, 26 Jul 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [3481]

The 'quiet beach' on Koh Samui did not prove to be one of my best choices for getting off the tourist track. The hotel was on the wrong side of the main thoroughfare route around the island but did have a nice rooftop top pool & a decent library ... Read more >

Bangkok to Koh Samui

THAILAND | Mon, 22 Jul 2013 | By butterfly-freed | Views [916]

Empty pavement space in Bangkok seems to be an invitation to set up stalls selling everything from clothing to trinkets and souvenirs to a wide variety of food which looks and smells amazing – some of it recognisable, much of it not. Through the ... Read more >

Getaway to Koh Samui

THAILAND | Fri, 16 Mar 2012 | By pmok | Views [703]

With all the diving courses completed, I decided to leave Koh Tao a few days earlier to visit Koh Samui, and then leave from Koh Samui back to Bangkok.  Koh Samui was only a 2.5-hour ferry ride away from Koh Tao, and from there I could take a day trip ... Read more >

Off to Koh Tao

THAILAND | Mon, 20 Feb 2012 | By pmok | Views [871]

Getting to Koh Tao from Bangkok required an overnight bus ride. After being assigned a seat on the bus, all of us passengers waited at Khao San Road for an hour before the bus arrived. Once on the bus around 9 PM, I was given a pillow and light throw.... Read more >

Koh Samui

THAILAND | Thu, 10 Mar 2011 | By katie_aurora | Views [535]

Island life going pretty good so far!  Just chilling on the beach and being busy doing nothing.  Only problem is that it is still too expensive.  We were hoping the islands would be cheaper but were deeply mistaken.  We blame all the sodding european ... Read more >

The "Free Luxury Holiday" Scam.

THAILAND | Thu, 25 Mar 2010 | By lisamorrison | Views [13072] | Comments [18]

The suns hot rays beat down on my face and bare arms. Sweat snaked its way down my forehead and into my eyes, stinging them, while beads of perspiration dotted my upper lip. Great, I had a moustache. The mosquito-like whine of a scooter became louder ... Read more >

Koh Samui

THAILAND | Mon, 31 Aug 2009 | By alistair | Views [693]

  I hadn’t booked ahead for accommodation on Koh Samui, relying on the advice of my ‘Rough Guide to South East Asia’. I randomly picked the ‘Your Place Resort’ as it was cheap and cheerful and on the beach at Chaweng. Chaweng is the main hub ... Read more >

Koh Samui & Koh Pha Ngan - Exploring the Gulf

THAILAND | Fri, 12 Dec 2008 | By jciecko | Views [957] | Comments [1]

Hello from sunny and laid back Koh Pha Ngan. Things here in the Gulf of Thailand are starting to pick up after a rough start. Our time on Koh Samui was somewhat spoiled by another stomach bug. This time it was Sebastian doubled-over in pain. He's nearly ... Read more >

Chaweng Ladyboy Show

Glazed swollen lips synching alluringly or grotesquely through an Abba medley, My Way, Heaven (must be talking to an angel), Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend. The songs follow each other seamlessly, each one with its own costume change and choreography, ... Read more >
