Excellent beautiful beach of Mae Nam (Mae Nam, Mae Nam also, meanam, Samui) 4 km in length, located on the North of Koh Samui (Maenam beach on the map). It is ideal for swimming, because the water here is decent, the bottom goes under the water rather abruptly. Because of this, the influence of the tides is almost imperceptible. The sand is yellowish, medium-grained, water is not very transparent. Even in high season it is a very desolate place, and fishermen or locals here often even more than the tourists. Entertainment on the beach almost no even chairs and umbrellas here you have to look.

As for the area, it is quite developed, but more like a very peaceful tourist village. On the one hand, it has everything for a comfortable tourist stay: rent a motorbike and car, the travel Agency, a Bank with exchange office, shops, and markets, several restaurants. But this infrastructure is very dispersed across the four-kilometer-long strip of area along the coast, no single center. Accordingly, to go out and walk in the evening, there is no room. You could even say that in the evenings there is a real backwoods. All this is compounded by the fact that the hotels and houses separated by a large distance and the forest. On the other hand, along the area is the ring road around which is full of life, and should only take up to a few hundred meters you can find supermarkets, shops, markets, salons, etc.

To get to Mae Nam beach is very easy. Along the beach only a couple-three hundred meters from the shore is the ring road, and is accessible by taxi Songthaews (from Nathon - 50 baht Chaweng - 100 baht). The taxi ride from the Airport will cost from 630 baht, 200 baht minivan. In the Western part of the beach is the pier of Lomprayah, which receives the high-speed catamarans from the island of Phangan, Tao, Hua hin and even Bangkok.

Hotels in Mae Nam is not very much, but there are also budget hotels from $ 20. There are bungalows right on the beach. The beach is very popular for a long stay, because this is one of the most inexpensive and the best places on Samui where you can rent a house or Villa for long term.

Summing up about May Us: the area is perfect for the elderly or families with children, but young and active here to be bored, even out in the evening to walk nowhere, to say nothing about the party. Even the restaurants here are not very many. If you need fun, you better look in the direction of the beaches of Chaweng, Lamai or on nearby Bophut.

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. ...

You ask like "Tell", and in the end not a question mark, and exclamation marks. More like advertising :THINK . Anyway the topic is about Samui and not Bali, it's even different countries. ...
