Koh Samui is located in the Gulf of Thailand, it is approximately 21 km wide and 25 km long. It is surrounded by about sixty other islands, which make up the Ang Thong National Marine Park and include other well known destinations, such as Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.
The island has a very short 'Monsoon' season and is usually experienced between the end of October and goes into the middle of December, it is hot and humid most of the time and the tropical climate can result in some amazing thunderstorms. From around March through to October, temperatures regularly reach 35 Celsius.From July to October it sometimes rains off and on (it is the tropics after all!), but is still pleasant as the sun pokes through and rainbows are often seen. September and October can be nice times to visit as it is quieter and more often then not it is cheaper.
There is plenty to do and see whilst you are here, there are activities suitable for everyone, Scuba Diving, Fishing, Golf, Snorkelling, Bird shows , an Aquarium to name but a few.
There are very unique sights to see on the island as well, the 'Mummified Monk' at Wat Khunaram is something that you will not see every day and 'Grandfather and Grandmother Rocks' are a very unusual photo opportunity! Big Buddha sits proudly on a headland that you will see from above if you fly into Samui, here as tourists, locals and monks go about their business, side by side, you will most certainly get a flaour of local life.
There is a vibrant nightlife on Koh Samui, the main towns of Chaweng and Lamai have bars, nightclubs and shows galore, a holiday on the island would not be complete without a visit to one of the infamous 'ladyboy' shows, Las Vegas style entertainment in the heart of the island.
On a more practical side, Koh Samui has a variety of Banks and Cashpoints, Post Offices, Dentists, Opticians and 3 International Hospitals.
You may be considering a holiday with a 'difference'...Koh Samui is fast becoming well known for its excellent Cosmetic Surgery and Health treatments, have your treatment done (at a much more affordable cost and with exceptional health care) and then recuperate in the privacy of Villa 6...
More affordable Dentistry treatments are widely available throughout the island, just build appointments into your week and recover lying on the beach!
Thailand is known as the 'Land of Smiles' and for very good reason, the local people will extend you a welcome that is warm and friendly, many speak English and will be happy to help make your holiday a memorable one.
Centred on the North coast, Maenam offers spectacular views of Ko Phangan to the North, and the Ang Thong National Marine Park to the East. The waters are calm and clean, being protected from north-easterly currents by Koh Phangan. Maenam is usually much less crowded than Lamai or Chaweng and Maenam's restaurants and bars still retain much of the local Thai flavour.
Although Maenam is quieter, more relaxed, with local Thai community still pretty much intact, there is a growing nightife, with plenty of bars and restaurants to visit during the evening.
During the day, if you can tear yourself away from the golden sands and clear blue waters of the beach, there are many shops in which to do your 'holiday' souvenir shopping, the choice is varied: Handmade jewellery, Clothing, unique items made from Coconut Wood, Beauty products and all manner of things for the kids! If you really want to get a local flavour, visit the daily market, where you will see many different sorts of cuisine...some you may recognize...some you may not!
You may be fortunate enough to be visiting Maenam when there is a 'Travelling Fair' in the village, these are always worth a visit, cheap clothes, shoes, household goods and of course food are there to buy....look closely at the food stalls though because a local delicacy are fried larvae and bugs...not for the faint hearted!
It is easy to reach the neighbouring island of Koh Phangan from Catamaran jetty at the very north of the beach and Scuba Diving/ Snorkelling trips to other nearby islands can also be easily arranged, the owners of Villa 6 are happy to assist with this.
If you go into the jungle, it only takes a 5 minute, 4 wheel drive to do this, where there are more adventurous things to do. You may want to try the canopy adventures, experience the thrill over travelling over the jungle canopy on a zip wire! Or trek through the jungle, getting a real island feel of the bountiful wildlife and amazing tropical surroundings.
If massages and beauty treatments are what you want, Maenam has a variety of spas and treatment centres, you can have a massage on the beach, or in a cosy local treatment centre or treat yourself even more and visit one of the hotels in the area, all of whom have spas on site...the choice is yours!
There is a stunning Chinese temple to see in the heart of this very unspolit village,as well as the just as beautiful Budhist temples throughout, where you are welcome to look around, just remember to dress respectfully and always take your shoes off before entering.
Last but not least, there are many restaurants to visit in the village, the menus are wide and varied, for example: road side noodle bars, eat all you like BBQ's, seafood restaurants on the waters edge, Italian restaurants and many, many serving a huge variety of traditional Thai cuisine...all at low prices!
