hiya, well we finally arrived alive, even after a bus tyre explosian incident, and we are staying in chaweng on koh samui.
does anyone know of anywhere good to stay? it doesent neccesarily have to be along chaweng, but somewhere thats not too built up but still has a bit of life in it.
Check out Mae Nam beach on the north of the island. Not so much life but definitely the most secluded beach and there are restaurants and bars along the main road in Bhoput you can try. Alternatively if you head to Koh Phangan, stay at Had Yuan beach, a short taxi boat (50baht) from Had Rin beach. Secluded, beautiful and still has some life!!
have a good time!
Agree with comment on Maenam - Moon Huts in particular is good. On Chaweng Beach consider Charlie's huts, on Lamai Beer's Bungalows are great budget value.
Hope that helps
