Crime in Ko Samet  (3 Answers)

"Armed robbery is a common occurrence on Ko Samet. The local police has little to no interest in resolving those crimes. The southern end of Ao Pai beach seems to be a robbery hotspot. Armed robberies even inside hotel rooms have been reported in this area." () - is this truth? I'm planning to go there with my wife and son, this month...

Help retrieve photos from a lost camera (Koh Samet, Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZX1)  (1 Answer)

Well, here's my sad story. Just yesterday me and my girlfriend, we came back from a vacation in Thailand – our first vacation together, and it was incredibly awesome, feels like a honeymoon, awesome journey. But here’s a thing – unfortunately, we lost our camera, just forgot it on a table in Seahorse Restaurant at Wong Duean beach on Koh Samet island. It happens at approx. 6-7 PM on Thursday, 13th September. It was full of amazing photos and short videos. Which are very valuable for us. It was a day before we left, and local police wasn't really helpful, and we tried our best, asked every reception on the beach, asked staff at the restaurant – but wasn't able to find it.

My good guess is – in case the camera was stolen, probably thieves would try to sell it, instead of keeping it. I know, that chances are very slim, but I will try:

So, if anyone found or buy used Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZX1 camera, black, with a serial number FD96A002862, and with a 16GB memory card in it – anywhere around on Koh Samet island, or in Rayong, or Pattaya, or online, or anywhere else in Thailand – please, please, please, contact me! At this e-mail: [email]. IMPORTANT NOTICE: even if the camera had no pictures in it, it’s actually pretty easy to restore them from a formatted memory card on a computer – there’s a lot of free and easy-to-use utilites to do that. So even if it’s empty (most likely it is), please, contact me anyway, before taking a lot of pictures with it! Obviously, I won’t be asking for a camera back, and no questions asked – all I want is to try and retrieve my photos.

I will send you a link for a program and detailed instructions on how to restore deleted photos. I will explain to you and provide you online storage to upload those pictures, and I will pay any internet bills, and we would be eternally thankful for saving and returning us photos from this vacation. If you can’t upload them, maybe you can just send them via mail on a flash/CD-R, I will pay for all postage rates, etc.

If you can help to spread the word around you, or suggest any other good forums/communities where to post this note, I would be very thankful too! I know chances are very slim, but I still want to try to do everything possible.

Q   a VirtualTourist member asked a question · October 19, 2008
I just CANT seem to make a decision!!!  (7 Answers)

I have been looking constantly for the last 5 days for somewhere to go with a relaxing atmosphere, but also be able to grab a drink in the evening..somewhere with lovely beaches and see-through water, but also nowhere more than 500B a night....

I have been to Koh Tao three times over the last 3 years and I guess Im looking for something very similar to that, but just cant seem to find it...

I have looked at Koh Chang, Koh Samet and all that area, but just cannot find a single review that says the same thing! Today is 20th Oct and I want to fly there on 24th, so as you can see, time is not on my side!!!

Any ideas please...Gulf of Thailand islands will be rainy now as otherwise I would prob just go back to Samui and the cosy little bungalows we had there one year...

And of course there are so many places which do not probably advertise on the internet so there may in fact be places like Im looking for, but I wouldnt know until I arrived...

Help please...Ko Chang pros and cons, Koh Samet pros and cons...and of course anywhere else in that area! South west is too expensive for me.

Thank you.

Going to Ko Samet this weekend...  (1 Answer)

Hopefully, someone can answer me before Friday. I tried to make a reservation at Tubtim Resort but I need to call and reconfirm on Friday. After looking at many sites about Ko Samet it looks like to get a budget bungalow you really can't make reservations and you just need to go there. Is this weekend going to be too busy and we may not get get a room? Also, we may get to the pier after 6:00 p.m. and it looks like the ferrys stop then. What is the best/cheapest way to get a speedboat after 6:00 p.m.? Go to a travel agency? Are they still even open at night? I have loads of questions, sorry about that. Thanks much.
