Koh Samui Day 3-Driving around whole of Koh Samui

Morning View of the Resort Beach

Breakfast @ Resort

Day 3 after breakfast at the hotel, initially my plan was to go on another island hopping-Ko Tao & Koh Nangyuan, ever since yesterday boat trip, everyone wanted to rest from boat ride, instead we rented a car to travel around the whole of Koh Samui. There are so many beaches that i wanted to see how they look like.

Obtaining a map from the hotel, we started our journey from Lamai Hua Thanon- Bang Kao to Thong Krut to Taling Ngam to Nathon to Maenam to Bo Phut and Chaweng back to Lamai.

Taling Ngam- we could see the five island from the beach. Then we went to have a look at the Ban Sabai Sunset Beach Resort and Spa- very luxurious, honeymoon resort, secluded and far from town.

Taling Ngam

Taling Ngam- Can you spot  the 5 islands?

There are 5 islands but my picture only show 3...sad
BoPhut- Fisherman Village- Is a long stretch of shops, with restaurant facing the beach, ice-cream parlor-movenpick...Spend time shopping. We went up to Signature Samui Beach Resort- The view from the hotel was splendid, more expensive, higher class hotel, catering for honeymoon vacationers and weddings.

My favourite picture

Chaweng- Back to Chaweng, crowded with people, full of hotels. Went to Tesco-to check out their products. In tesco, look out for the travel size shampoo for Pantene, head and shoulders & facial wash... all around RM 2-3, quite cheap as it is manufactured in thailand. Drove to view point-nice view, you will be able to find it on the map.

Back to the hotel.

Dinner: Sala Thai Restaurant.- Restaurant was full of people. Waiting time was quite long. The Mango Juice was not as good as the restaurant on the first day, it was more watery. Ordered Pad Thai, Tom Yam (Yum Yum!) Chicken, Steam Fish and Curry. Feels like we had a such big appetite. The food wasn't that great too maybe because they were rushing, lack of taste.
