Beach and Lamai beach (Lamai, Lamai also) is on the Western shore of Samui in the South from the most popular beach Lamai (Lamai beach on the map). This is a great long beach and a quiet neighborhood.

If Chaweng is the center of entertainment and the most developed and bustling district, on Lamai everything in moderation. Here there is nightlife, bars, girls, clubs, but not many, and they are not as noisy, and practically do not interfere with those who they are not interesting and who prefer a quiet holiday. Most of such entertainment is concentrated in the Northern part of the area, and if you move South, it becomes much quieter.

There are heaps of restaurants and cafes, there is a great outdoor food court. If you need to buy something in the area there is a great supermarket Tesco Lotus where you can find anything, and, again, there is the food court. On Sunday evening the Northern part of the district (near the bridge) is closed to traffic, and starts Walking Street and night market. And every evening after 18 o'clock till midnight in the heart of the main street there is a souvenir night market and close to it the food court under the open sky. And about such things as travel agencies, exchange offices, ATMs, car transport and other necessary facilities for leisure infrastructure, and not worth mentioning, because all this is found in Lamai at every step.

Himself Lamai beach is one of the best for swimming and relaxing on the beach in Koh Samui. Its length is 3 kilometers, and it is very pleasant to those who likes long walks along the surf. The effects of tides, it is almost not affected by, the waves here are not strong. Sand large. In the southern part of the bottom of a pretty steeply down, while on the North (towards Chaweng) depth is small. All the entertainment and facilities on the beach are present.

Hotels in Lamai very much, the prices are low. Prices for accommodation without air conditioning start from around 300 baht, but for 500 you can find a good spacious double room in the Guesthouse with air conditioning. For hotel accommodation will have to pay 1000 baht. Find affordable accommodation upon arrival is possible, but will have quite a wander around the area if you do not know in advance, because the centre of concentration of budget guesthouses here, and they are scattered around Lamai. But the largest concentration was in the North, so a search it is better to start from there. The cheapest you can find off the road in the quiet lanes. In General, the new expensive hotels are gradually replacing the cheap near the beach, and finding them becomes more difficult.

In conclusion, we can say that Lamai beach, and the area that will suit absolutely everyone. There's enough entertainment for young people (and if it is small, it is possible to drive to the nearby bustling Chaweng) and there is a quiet place for the elderly, and there are good conditions for family rest. The beach here is also above all praise: one of the best on the island.

The rainy season in Thailand is nonsense.All the different provinces. For Koh Samui in July ,August and until mid September is the best time of rest. And this time, not the rainy season. There is a month can go 3-4 rain for 15 minutes. And this is the peak season. In Italy from August 1 to September 1 all the holiday( in Spain too) and at this time the island crowded with Italians(but not the Spaniards,there are a few). 10 times vacationing with his wife on Koh Samui this summer for a month each time. Russian tour guides(friends) we were told that winter here is worse.A few years ago I went to Koh Samui in winter from 20 January to 15 February. Really did not like.Every three days the storm in the sea grass, boards, logs and other debris. And weather is normal, you can relax. But it is not a rule, sometimes worse, but sometimes better.Therefore, from 1 November the best place to relax on Koh Chang until March, then worse.But the ball there is a zero. So everybody is looking for what suits him. Someone like Phuket, some don't, also the winter vacation is good there, but for us in winter, Koh Chang better.I will add that to Chang the wild tides and need to get serious about the choice of hotel. ...

All true, and nobody on this website never claimed that in Thailand the rainy season is one for the whole country, and on this account even sickly seasons sign is - But you draw conclusions about the weather on several trips at one time, and one trip to another - not objectively. Still the best season in Samui is in January-April. And the fact that you were not so lucky... well, weather is unpredictable because almost... ...

Read the post above. This answer for AnyChek. And what about January-April , I live here told friends, operating guides. It is friends, just guides I'm not going to listen. Been there, done that. And about the spring floods you forget about autumn I will not say, you do know about them and during them happening. And that weather is unpredictable, you're right... But for our 10 year old travel to Samui had no problems with the weather. ...

Samui is a wonderful island!
We flew from Moscow with a stopover in Bangkok, the tour was in early March. The weather was great, and just in the last day the sun hid, and we learned what a tropical rain. :lol:
We stayed in the wonderful hotel briza resort. The hotel consists of many small two-storey houses, each house a maximum of 4 rooms. The whole hotel look like the garden of Eden, is buried in verdure.
The island is very interesting because on one side you can only see the dawn, and on the other the decline. We lived in Chaweng, there are only sunrises, so we decided one evening to go to the other end of the island to watch the sunset, and absolutely do not regret it, it is very beautiful! ...

I have a strong opinion that trips to a guide which tells about the sights, only needed for historical sites. And considering that there are places on Samui not, then excursions are not necessary, if you are able to reach on their own. If you drive a motorbike, take it in rent and go, all you will see. ...
