Travel Guide to Koh Samui (Little White Guide to Koh Samui)
Two days ago, Li Yifeng went to Koh Samui to scan the screen. Found the same hotel, Samjana Sam Ghana Kingdom Villas.
The location of the villa is high and open, stylish and simple. The huge swimming pool can see the sea at a glance.
It looks great from the room too. The light beige color is matched with the blue sea and blue sky of Koh Samui, it feels quite healing~
The girls are crying and shouting to see you in Koh Samui Wuli Fengfeng, so I compiled some strategies for your fans and guests going to Koh Samui, which can be used when playing.
The following are popular science hours:
1. The main means of transportation on the island are small open-top buses, which cost about 50B-200B. Of course, learning to bargain is an essential skill for traveling to Thailand.
3. Koh Samui is dominated by European and American nuts, so many nuts have opened their own hotels.
4. The accommodation on Koh Samui is mainly Chaweng Chawen Beach & La Mai La Mai Beach. In terms of price, Lamek is lower than Chawong. Residents are mainly in Europe and America. Tea Weng has the prestigious W Hotel, as well as various parties and bars on Youyou.com. Friends from all over the world gather here.
5. Koh Samui is located in the Gulf of Thailand, close to the equator. Pay attention to sun protection in summer and winter. It is true that people of the yellow race cannot stand the sun.
6. In fact, going to Koh Samui is mainly to bask in the sun, step on the beach, and think about the future with your beloved. There are also attractions, see the recommendations below.
7. In Koh Samui, you can eat everything, and the price is lower than Bangkok and higher than Chiang Mai.
8. What can I try when I go to Koh Samui? It is recommended to go to Turtle Island for snorkeling. Every day, many boats travel between the two islands. Water sports in Samui are quite interesting. The most important thing is that there are few Asians. No matter how you play, how embarrassing you are, you will never meet acquaintances haha.
9. How about the wedding in Koh Samui? Like it! Simple and fresh, it can be made to the specifications of a big star without spending a lot of money.
10. If your English is not good, how can you get along in Koh Samui, which is full of nuts? The language proficiency in Koh Samui is not as bad as we thought. First of all, the hotels are either run by nut people or Thai people, and there are not a few Chinese people. However, there is still hope for their English listening. Simple vocabulary can be directly translated to others by the next APP (no advertisement required). It is recommended to prepare a dozen small notes before going to Thailand, write down the address and name in English, and ask passers-by in time.

If you don’t plan to stay on the island, you have to pay 100 baht per person to go to the island. To prevent pollution, no one is allowed to bring plastic products or cans to the island. What’s more, if the conditions on the island do not permit, they have the right to refuse you to go to the island, even if you have already visited. But it is such a small island that makes everyone who comes here reluctant to part with, willing to devote themselves to this simple paradise.
At dusk, enjoy a romantic dinner while admiring the gorgeous sunset at the end of the vast sea. Then, walk barefoot on the soft and narrow sandy beach, with the sea on the left and right, the low voice, and the sky full of stars.
The good diving learning conditions around Nanyuan Island provide excellent conditions for beginners, and each course becomes an interesting experience.

Ya Temple, also known as the Big Buddha Temple, is famous for its 15-meter-high golden Buddha statue. The temple is located on Koh Fan, byNear Banglaike Beach (Big Buddha Beach). There is no road between the beach and the temple, but a road was built from the sea to the temple later.
Paya Temple, the landmark of Koh Samui, is a famous landmark and scenic spot on Koh Samui, and it is also the most sacred building. This large temple dedicated to the Buddha is built on the top of the mountain, condescending, with a panoramic view of the surrounding sea area and nearby islands. The scenery is charming.

If it is Thai baht, please wrap it in an envelope and place it in the monk’s alms bowl. Note, ladies, don’t get too close to the monks, let alone meet them.
Tongzhen can be said to be the most prosperous old town in Koh Samui, where almost all *** institutions are concentrated. Many local residents live in the town. In general, it is very convenient to eat, drink and have fun. The town also has a larger pier in Koh Samui – Nantong Pier, which can take ferries to several islands around Koh Samui all year round.
Because more tourists came, the pier became a very lively attraction. You can find a restaurant near the pier and enjoy good food and sunset. Of course, at night, you can also visit the night market at the pier. All kinds of Thai snacks are sure to satisfy your taste buds. Also, if you have enough time, you can wander around the town.

In Pagan Island, Thailand, one of the world’s three major “wild party” resorts, backpackers (self-help travelers) and electronic musicians (electronic music fans) from all over the world will meet in Collective pilgrimage during the “full moon” of the fifteenth day of the lunar calendar.
On both sides of the road leading to the “Full Moon Party” by the sea, there are various wine barrels and drinks in front of every shop. Backpackers and electronic musicians choose the flavor of the wine, add ice cubes, carefully stir it, and then pack it in a wine barrel and carry it to the seaside. Under the influence of music and the catalysis of wine barrels, the Full Moon Party reveled until dawn at an unrestrained speed.
The tradition of the full moon party is to paint the whole body with fluorescent paint and dance under the full moon. You can draw your body like an artist to attract others. There are fire shows on the beach, beauties in bikinis, handsome guys, alcohol, and fluorescent lights. With House, Techno, Trance, Downbeat, Drum & Bass on a beach without boundaries, you can dance, laugh, and unleash all your ***.

During the full moon party, the hotels on Pa An Island are almost full. It is recommended that tourists plan their trips in advance, even seat and hotel reservations A vote is hard to come by. Those who want to participate in the party need to bring 1,000 baht with them. It doesn’t take much, even if they cost… because some shit is going on under the catalyze of alcohol.
In order to ensure the safety of all tourists, the Thai police have a lot of surveillance here. Please do not try them lightly, so as not to break the law. Usually when the moon is full, human hormones will wander around, especially under the catalysis of alcohol and moonlight. Remember not to love strangers~ Face this full moon party rationally and enjoy the music and exotic food to your heart’s content.

All the elephants here are imported from northern Thailand by local operators for the development of tourism. In Thailand, there are still unscrupulous traders who hunt and kill elephants for their ivory to sell. So the government of Thailand has set up an elephant halfway house to take in these abandoned elephants and then arrange for them to be sent to zoos and other institutions for proper care. Therefore, you will see posters asking for donations in Koh Samui and other tourist attractions. Tourists can donate money and ride elephants in legally operated tour companies, which can be regarded as helpingthese elephants.
