After catching a bus from Surat Thani followed by a ferry we arrived on Ko Samui. We took a Taxi from the port and went to Lamai. There are a lot of westerners round here and it has a holiday resort type feel. The weather when we arrived was raining but it picked up for the 3 days that we spent here. Again we never did much but wander up and down the high street sampling the bars and restaurants. It's a nice place and worthy of a visit. We also caught a sawngthaew (bigger version of a tuk tuk with four wheels) to the major tourist hot spot of Chaweng. This is just a place filled with tourist shops, bars and restaurants.
