I arrived in Koh Samui having booked a different place on line. It was a mistake...off the beaten track and requiring constant transportation. If you go to Chaweng Beach on Koh Samui you want to be on the Strip!. I bit the bullet and walked out of a one week pre-paid booking and to a walk on the beach. I found century old trees with tables in the powder white sand below. I relaxed and had a drink looking at the crystal clear water and decided this is where I wanted to be. I went in to the office on the grounds...through an Asian beach restaurant and asked to see a bungalow. I was shown a large private bungalow...king size bed...basic everything. The bathroom was great and the water hot,
TV and security box included. The bungalows are set in very established tropical gardens and a Coy pool. I paid about $40. a day...half of what I was paying way off the beach. No pool only a spectacular ocean steps from your door. At night all the hotels, bars and restaurants move out onto the beach and string up multi-coloured lights and you instantly have a mile music, food, and socializing...The island has many fabulous day tours, Elephant safai, Canoeing, Zip Line (one of the best) horses, hiking, biking etc. and even though you can walk everywhere on Chaweng Beach Road to shop or lunch or be entertained...you can rent a motor bike for about $5.00 a day. Life in paradise on a budget that can't be beat.
