If you are coming here, you will probably fly from Bangkok, but there’re cheap flights from Hong Kong and Singapore too. 

It’s a nice island, less crowded than Phuket and therefore a better option IMMO. Unfortunately they overdo setting prices to taxis rides (rip-off warning) and leisure activities.

If you want to ride an elephant, do it around bangkok, if you wan to dive, go to Maldives, if you want to sail, do it at home. But if you want to pay two or three times the prices you will pay at home (assuming Europe, USA, Australia or Japan) this is the place for you. Last, do not expect service and safety standards like at home.

 Na Muang two waterfall is about 80 meters high
 and “can only be reached by a 30 minute walk”
so large pickups tuned like moon rangers are waiting you
and for 100 BHT will take you there.
But I use Father Bunny shoulder and did it in 7 minutes!!

 Bhoput beach has a “so called” fisherman’s village, that
is just an open market where they try to sell you the same
good you can buy everywhere for one third of the amount.
 A bar in Bhoput beach, there are a lot ranging from
nice intimate places to loud pseudo Irish Pubs
 Sunset on the beach, It happens around 18:30 and they
will try to sell you “sunset experience” in a boat for 1200 BHT
and up with watered margaritas and badly mixed mojitos.
Buy them in Seven Eleven, go to the deck and that’s it!
Six Senses Hotel, an eco friendly resort located in Samui’s
northeastern point. May be the nicest, of course the most
expensive. The only problem you’re their hostage and 
you need to pay minimun 500 BHT to get out of that paradise
 Melati resort, close to Six Senses, same problem
if you want to visit your Seven Eleven or Family Mart
expect to walk 2 kilometers one way or to pay 400 BHT
 Just a nice picture, no warning.
 Lobster and shellfish basket on the beach, It’s not cheap,
 it’s not the best we have had, but it’s ok.
Chaweng beach close 
to Sareeraya hotel
This is me with Nijntje (Cafemify) from Japan
who came to explore Samui with  me
