The Koh Samui region
Ko Samui is in the Gulf of Thailand, about 35 km northeast of Surat Thani town (9°N, 100°E). It is the most significant Island in the Chumphon Archipelago. The island measures some 25 km at its widest point. It is surrounded by about sixty other islands, which together compose the Ang Thong Marine National Park (Mu Ko Ang Thong National Park) and include many other popular tourist destinations, including, Ko Phangan, Ko Tao and Ko Nang Yuan.
The central part of the island is an almost uninhabitable tropical jungle mountain called Khao Pom, peaking at 635 m. The various lowland and coastal areas are connected by a single 51 km road, running mostly along the coastline and encircling the bulk of the island. On the northwest coast of the island is the old capital, Nathon. Although Nathon spreads over a large area, the actual port and main business district is relatively small.
Nathon is the major port for vehicular and goods transportation from the mainland, it is the centre of the fishing industry, and remains the seat of the regional government. The majority of the government functions are based here, as is the public hospital. Being the location of the main port and the closest inhabited area to the mainland provided the impetus for Nathon becoming the commercial centre for Samui locals. More recently, the decline in dependence on the local coconut industry, the continued growth and development of the tourist industry, and the northeastern location of the airport, has seen the slow move of the commercial centre to Chaweng.
Ko Samui Climate features a tropical monsoon climate under Köppen's climate classification. However the city only has one true dry season month. Average monthly precipitation in February falls below 60 mm, the threshold for a tropical dry season month. The climate is warm and humid for most of the year. However, in comparison to Phuket and most of the rest of Southern Thailand, Samui's weather is relatively dry. The heaviest precipitation is typically seen in the months of October and November. For the rest of the year, given the tropical climate, rain showers are brief; 20–60 minutes duration is typical. The island sees on average just under 2000 mm of precipitation annually.
Although not far from the main tourist drags, Plai Laem just past Big Buddha is often devoid of tourists who seem oblivious to its existence and quaint charm. Slightly better known is Choeng Mon, which consists of a main beach as well as several intimate coves often only accessible via resorts, or dirt paths that wouldn't be discovered without some exploring.
It would be easy to drive right past Choeng Mon's main beach without knowing this wonderful swimming beach even exists, as it is hidden behind resort facades, shops and restaurants. Turn left just before the family mart, and a road leads you to a parking lot next to Choeng Mon Bungalows and Restaurant. I am torn between sharing a few of my favourite spots, or letting them stay a well-kept secret … Well, here goes …
On the Plai Laem side, about 200m past Big Buddha, on the right, is Star Beach Bistro & Café. This little cafe is one of the few places in this area offering cheap Western food. The menu includes great salads and soups, and daily Russian food specials, as well as Thai options. The mushroom soup, at only 60B, is rich, creamy and delicious. Join locals enjoying their morning wake up with coffee and breakfast on the patio while reading the paper. Ask about daily specials, and try the fruit shakes.
Shhhh! Don't tell everyone about this awesome new spot!
Samui is home to several good Indian restaurants and the best on Samui's northeast coast is Akbar. What it lacks in view it makes up for in flavour: sample owner Binod's lamb rogan josh, with a buttery garlic naan, or some spicy samoosas with his signature minty yoghurt dip. The menu is vast, with vegetarian options, and all the usual Indian dishes, plus a Thai menu too. The restaurant is located in the middle of Choeng Mon's main road and reasonably priced.
Choeng Mon Restaurant is part of Choeng Mon Bungalows and provides free sun loungers and umbrellas, so even if you don't feel like eating, you can spend the day lazing on the beach in style and order drinks from the restaurant. If you choose to eat, leave your towel on your lounger, and move up to the open-air restaurant for well-priced Thai or Western food. In the evening they move tables onto the beach, and add fairy lights and lanterns for atmosphere. For dessert, try the banana fritters with coconut ice cream – the hot and cold sensation with tropical flavours is a delicious way to end a meal.
I dream of ... hot banana fritters with cold vanilla ice cream.
A long time favourite vendor on Choeng Mon beach is Mr Coppi. He can be seen from about 11:00 each day, setting up his beach kitchen and drawing the crowds for his grilled buttered corn on the cob, grilled chicken with sticky rice and fresh fruit.
A few hot coals, an ice box, one bowl and a sharp knife - kitchen equipment checked.
Visitors to Samui who would like to escape the crowds of Chaweng beach would do well to explore the northeastern beaches of Choeng Mon and Plai Laem. Plai Laem harbour makes for an interesting walk; drive the side roads and explore hidden beaches such as the one in front of Melati Resort, with its public access point being near Thongson Bay Bungalows.
They paved paradise, and put up a parking lot.
As far as family activities are concerned, options include football golf, mini-golf and a visit to the vibrant Wat Plai Laem, where fat fish are waiting to be fed.
