Koh Samui- Day 1

Arriving at the Koh Samui Airport- they arrange the tram to take us to the immigration. Considering Koh Samui is an island, the Airport had an island feel to it. After taking our baggage, you will see some booths for rental of cars. We thought that that was the place to wait for our pre-arranged transport to the hotel. Then we found after a few minutes that we had to walk further up, following the signs to the "Real" arrival hall. Therefore, just follow the sign.

We met our driver and travel about 20-30 minutes to our hotel in Lamai- Promtsuk Buri (for more information about the hotel, pls look at the hotel page)

After checking in to our hotel, we decided to take a rest, enjoy the hotel beach and to plan for the next day activity- Island hopping-Ang Thong National Marine Park. In the evening, we travel to Chaweng by taxi. (see transportation tip)

Chaweng beach road-near Chaweng Lake- is a long stretch of shops selling all sorts of things, food, thai products, leather shoes, haagendas, swensens, tailors, bars... It is crowded, as many of the tourist stay here or around this town.
Dinner: Thai food at a restaurant in chaweng-Beach Road. We asked around and they recommended this shop. (sorry I forgot to take down the name, it was I think opp ) The food was really delicious. The Mango Juice is a must try, it is really fresh juice from fresh mangoes. Then we ordered a plate of stir fry vegetables, fry fish, tom yam and pineapple fried rice. All was really splendid except for the fry fish.
