Best area to stay?  (5 Answers)

We will be there from Feb. 18 - Feb. 28. Online, I have read that there are a number of beaches, areas, etc. We'd like to be on a nice beach, staying at a 5 star hotel, which seem to start about US$200/night. Since we do not intend to have a car, location and convenience to restaurants, shopping, etc. is important. We want to avoid tacky areas. Online, the comments from one person say that beach #1 is the best, then the next person commenting says it is terrible, and so on. How do we figure out the best place to stay?

Long-term Accomodation  (5 Answers)

On August 1st I will start an internship at a hotel in Chaweng beach. I would like to rent a small apartment for one year. I will not be earning a lot of money, therefore it should be something affordable. Could anyone recommend any agents which can rent out local apartmets?
On Google I can only find holiday apartments, which are usually more expensive and they don't have a kitchen. It should preferably be at or not far from Chaweng.

Thx in advance

Hi there, I'm travelling back to Koh Samui Dec 04 and it will be solo this time. I'm fine during the day but could anyone recommend where to go at night in the Chaweng/Lamai area? Chilled bars are fine as I don't want to be labelled with all those guys who want young girls.

Cheers

How to get to Samui from Phuket in One Piece  (3 Answers)

Hello fellow VTers and thank you so much to Samui forum contributors davidjo, ossiecass, jamiesamui, erwinkoo, pfsmalo, popi (greekcypriot) whose answers to FAQs in the forum have been very helpful as I plan this holiday to South Thailand.

I booked a night's bed at Phuket Airport Residence early June. I notice the Airport Shuttle Bus to HKT town starts at 9AM while the Lomprayah Bus to Surat Thani (with connection to Samui on its fast boat) leaves their Phuket town office at 10am.

The best advise i gathered is to just head for Phuket Bus Terminal to have flexibility in travel arrangements.

The last ferry boat to Samui leaves 6-7pm, from what I have gathered in the forum.

Lomprayah quotes THB 1,300 for the HKT-SAMUI transfer, which I believe is not too bad. If HKT town is worth visiting, maybe I should be staying one night at least before heading for Samui? I manage 11 days.

Or maybe I should take advantage of the free bicycles at the Phuket Airport Residence to visit the town and find Lomprayah by bike to book my ticket for the transfer to Samui?

Any travel tips from those who have been there?

Really appreciate VT's service and hope to find friends in this forum too.
I will pay forward the travel tips I get by writing about this experience and contribute
my two cents worth of tips after my travel.
