Asia » Thailand » South-West Thailand » Ko Samui January 23rd 2003

Har vaert paa Koh Samui i et par dager naa. Den foerste dagen var jeg paa ladyboyshow, og ble kjent med en del av de ladyboyene som jobbet der. Var veldig morsomt, helt til en av ladyboyene sa ganske klart i fra at hun ville bli med meg hjem... Ble litt redd da, og bestemte meg for aa finne noen andre aa leke med i stedet... Ellers har jeg tilbragt late dager paa stranda, og er naa kokosnoettbrun!!! Hvis jeg ikke smiler, og lukker oeynene, saa vil du ikke kunne se meg om natta... *glis* Ellers maa jeg innroemme at utenom at det er veldig pent her, saa er jeg ikke saa vanvittig begeistret over Thailand. Det er noe med atmosfaeren her som jeg ikke liker... jeg kan ikke helt sette fingeren paa det, men jeg ... read more

Naa har jeg kommet meg til Koh Samui. Dette skal vaere den store partyoeyen i Asia, saa det kan jo bli kjekt aa se om det stemmer. Dro til en annen strand paa Koh Pha Ngan paa soendagen sammen med Heidi og Karoline (to danske piger), Casper, og Alex og Christian (to tyske gutter). Stranda var saa godt som folketom, og det var veldig goey. Bodde oppe paa en aaskam som stakk ut over havet, og utsikten der var bare helt fantastisk!! De to guttene som jobbet i restauranten der var kjempehyggelige, og inviterte stadig oss til aa synge i mikrofonen... Noe som var skjult kodespraak for reoyke en bong - og jammen var det en voksen bong og da... Naa skal det nevnes her at jeg ikke sang i noens mikrofon da - i tilfelle ... read more

naa har jeg tatt Advanced Open Water, og det var kjempeartig!!! Vi hadde fem dykk: naturalist (hvor man laerer aa kjenne igjen forskjellige fisker og koraller under vann), navigation (dykke rundt om kring med kompass), deep dive (ned til 30 meter, vi var bare nede paa 28 meter, men det er rimelig dypt det da... ), multilevel dive (dykking paa forskjellige dybder i samme dykk), og night dive. paa navigationdykket sendte dykkeinstruktoeren oss ut i hytt og pine, og saa skulle vi finne tilbake ved bruk av kompass. det gikk for det meste greit, og vi var like mange naar vi kom tilbake til baaten som naar vi forlot baaten. men, det er veldig lett aa svoemme seg vill under vann. man sier gjerne at en visibility paa 25-30 meter er veldig bra... men det er ... read more

Mae Nam is the best resort Samui seems to offer. On a rainy day the east side is reminiscent of Isaac Levitan’s realist masterpiece "Deep Waters" restricted as it is from development by network of streams. The centre of the beach is more typically furnished with the staple palm tree and plays host to an array of pleasant bars and eateries facing north towards Ko Phangan. Lorries hurl along the main drag at break neck speeds, an indicator as to how Ko Samui has the highest incidence of traffic fatalities in the whole of Thailand. In spite of this Mae Nam is a delightful place with only perfunctory facets of the commercialism that mars so many other areas of the island. Perhaps best of all the residents are extremely friendly and their sense of humour can ... read more

General observations of the Samui Archipelago: 1 - If Thai folk generally drive like madman then the islanders need sectioning. 2 - The long haired locals are suspiciously laid back. 3 - If bungalow construction continues at the rate it is then in 10 years time that is all there will be. Ko Samui is Ko Phangan's older and bigger messed up brother. If Phangan was Jonny Depp, liked to binge but essentially too cool to warrant problematic, then Samui is a drunk from the old school, someone like William Holden or Oliver Reed. Lamai for example is made up of Hua Hin rejects, tattooed skinheads and lascivious men with a penchant for Thai girls. It's only marginally eased by a steep beach that induces impressive waves abetted by the sudden storms that often creep in ... read more

There is an indefinable quality that makes Buddhist countries superb travel destinations, and possibly the most famous of these is Thailand. Tourists flock to this Asian paradise from all over the world, and when it comes to the tourism industry the Thais do things better and with more grace than anyone else ... and who can resist the world famous Thai cuisine! When I arrived in Bangkok I mysteriously slotted into Thai lifestyle as if they had cast a magic spell over me. It hardly seems possible to be in a foreign country for the first time, and yet from the moment of arrival feel so relaxed and at ease. But that's the mystery of Thailand; in a country of 60 million people who are 95% buddhist and also boasting one of the strongest economies in ... read more
