The Koh Samui region
The climate is lovely, with temperatures varying between 25 and 34 degrees Celsius.
There are three seasons, warm and dry season from February till May, rainy season from the end of September till November and "cool" season which extends from October till January.
Koh Samui is part of 80 islands of which 6 only are inhabited. It is an island of coconuts and forested hills, on chalk mountains, culminating at 636 meters. Its beautiful beaches, its jungle, its hills and waterfall create a very changing landscape, rarely found in other islands.
The story of Samui started to change in the beginning of the 80's, when it was discovered by backpacker-travellers. These brought the creation of small simple bungalow resorts with palm leaves roofs, but the secret could not be kept for long and now the island is fast becoming a resort of international stature. Yet, in spite of the development of tourism, its inhabitants are well determined to preserve its natural charm and exceptional attraction.
Samui's best beaches line the northern and eastern coasts, the most popular being Chaweng and Lamai.
If you need a break from all that lounging on the beach, there are lots of unusual attractions which make the most of the island's culture and island charm. Forget the theme parks and hi-tech attractions. Instead, try the monkey show or the snake farm, or better still hire a car and go sightseeing.
Buffalo Fighting. If spectator sports are more to your liking how about a bit of buffalo fighting? This local sport was traditionally held as entertainment after the rice harvest but now is a regular gig with sometimes millions of baht changing hands over the winner.
Crocodile Farm. They're all here. Siam crocodiles, Caimans, Saltwater crocodiles, snakes, lizards, monkeys and many others. Showtime twice a day 14:00 and 16:30. Located behind the airport and easy to find.
Snake Farm. Some of the most famous scary and poisonous snakes in Asia are goaded into action by experienced snake wranglers, who dodge and weave, duck and dive, as the snakes try to grab their attention. A must-see for almost anyone visiting the island.
Monkey Show. Koh Samui is synonymous with coconut trees - there are literally plantations all over the island, and until tourism arrived, coconuts were the main industry here. How do you get at the coconuts? . Enter the monkey, considered as man's best friend, these industrious little animals are greatly prized and give a demonstration of their incredible dexterity (and not just at picking coconuts) in the outdoor theatre. The entertainment also includes performing elephants. Look for the theatre on the main road behind Bophut Village.
Hin Ta/Hin Yai
Samui's phallic rocks are as popular with Thai visitors as foreigners. Meaning Grandfather Rock and Grandmother Rock respectively, in local legend the rocks represent two doomed lovers who drowned themselves in the sea here, because their families disapproved of their relationship.
A large board at the site tells their story in full dramatic detail. The street approaching the rocks is lined with stalls selling a nice range of coconut wood products and garamear - Samui's own glutinous coconut candy, which is rarely available elsewhere on the island. Route 4169, South of Lamai Town.
From February till October, the average temperature is from 32 to 38 degrees, but from July till September, there can be some showers, but only for a few hours. Rainy season often amounts in fact to some "refreshing"showers followed by the return of the sun.
The climate is tropical so very humid all year round, but Samui remains always refreshed by a pleasant sea breeze blowing from the Gulf. In conclusion, if you love the sun and if you can withstand heights of summer, come from February till May! It is very rare that it rains...
The Lamai area
Lamai is a relaxing small sea side town, with its many Restaurants and bars to choose from. makes for a great night life, which can go on till 4am. Equally you can find a quite part of the beach and just chill out.
Chawang which is a 20 minute drive is lot busier than Lamai, with many western type shops, good bars and restaurants.
Take part in some Elephant trekking. Over fifty elephants call Samui home and all work in the tourist industry. A typical 'trek' lasts between 15 minutes and half an hour and is an excellent way to see the island's jungle clad interior. Some companies take visitors up into the hills for magnificent views over the island, others go through waterfalls, where riders run the risk of receiving a cooling shower.
NB: Some companies keep gibbons and other endangered species as pets to entertain visitors - as well as being cruel, this is illegal in Thailand and should not be encouraged.
Samui Aquarium & Zoo.
Both the aquarium and the zoo have many of Thailand's tropical favourites above and below the water. Lots of coral fish, huge catfish and several sharks including Leopard and Black Tips Samui's local zoo adjacent to the aquarium, house some south-eastern Asian tigers, parrots, hornbills, sea hawks, eagles or even otters who will perform for you .... if they are in the mood.
Secret Buddha Garden. The secret Buddha Garden was the inspiration of one man who built several statues, temples and waterfalls, in a hidden location high up in the hills of Samui. It's possible to drive to the garden by 4WD vehicle, but probably less hassle to take one of the many jungle tours offered by travel agencies and resorts. Contact a few places to compare prices.

A winter sun break
13 Sep 2012
The house was great in terms of space and location. privacy was limited as owner uses the house to do their hotel laundry so they are in and out of the house all day. Bathrooms were dated but functional. The cleaning service provided by the owner seem to focus on changing sheets and mopping floor. Bathroom bins were not emptied throughout our stay (15 days) and bathroom sink and toilet looked dyer after 15 days of surface cleaning. We were told that the rent was inclusive of laundry and maid services but we were charged for laundry. The photo that shows the gym room on the web site is not a gym, it is where the owner does the hotel laundry. The gym was in a room in the house but not functional and the internet did not work for our entire stay. However, the owner did let us use their hotel's internet to compensate which was not convenient. There was no TV in the bedroom as stated in the website but the TV downstairs was in good working order with English channels. The first two days of our stay we shared the pool with the diving school who had sub rented the pool. Car/bike rental is a must as it is away from main road and shops. Drinking water was provided by the owner. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and the owner did come to our rescue when our rental car broke down.
With a bit of updating of bathrooms and kitchen facilities the house could be a lovely hideaway for those who seek a quite holiday.
