Ko samui is not a place i would return to, it is a tourists trap and it has spoilt the island natural beauty.
We arrived in Koh Samui, in Chaweng!!!!!!!!!!! don't ever go!! unless you want to see streets of tacky fake designer clothes, have women saying " you wanna join us", unless you wanna hear over and over again, " tuk tuk? maasaage? (they take so long to say one word!!) you want new suit?" no, no, no, and no again. Its overpriced and tacky, and a tourists blackpool, horrible place, so decided to go back to the hotel room we booked, went in, opened the bathroom door to find about 15 cockroches in the bathroom, again, not a fishermans story, we took photos to show how many there were, so when i went to the blokey in charge to tell him, " yes" he says and laughs!! thats all they do when you speak to them, well anyone who knows me, knows thats not the reply when i'm miffed, so i say back " no!! and no its not funny!! and yes you follow me!!" but he refused, i got quite nasty with him, talking about reviews on the internet of his hotel!! works most times, so the wimp, sent a young girl in, and she saw the cockroaches and immediatly said, "aahhh, new room" thanks love, atleast you have some humane blood in you, so the next day we moved up to the north of the island to Bo Phut, and it was a lovely small fishing village, which was lovely and quiet, and came to life at night, but in a romantic way, so we spent one night there, but the prices were so over the top, so when we ordered salad each and the portion was smaller than a side salad, we nearly wept and went to bed very hungry!!!!
