Koh Samui – Real Thai Life

Posted on Posted in Pura Vida

Arriving in Koh Samui, the first thing I noticed was a squinting fish, observing me while doing my little business after the flight at the airport. From there we directly went shared bussing to Mae Nam Beach in the north of the island. For 6 full days we were about to stay in the Maenam Bay Resort located about 3 minutes from the beautiful Mae Nam Beach.

If you’d like to have a look around. Check out the 360 Ale-X-perience – Mae Nam Beachwalk.


The accommodation delivers no big luxury but the girls on the reception were really lovely and happy to help us out with local information. Let’s say it was a cost friendly and a healthy and grounding alternative to the overflow of fanciness that we experienced at the Lebua Bangkok. Have a look at our room there in the very quick and dirty episode of Reviewmania Mae Nam Bay Resort.


Basically, what we did in Koh Samui was working like crazy at our fantastic new office at the Santiburi Beach Bar. We had a very nice inside into everyday life on a quiet beach in Thailand. Our routine went more or less like this: We got up, went to the office to have a black coffee (Moe) and a latte macchiato plus a fresh coconut (me) and started working. Then we ordered a different plate of fancy deliciousness and continued to work until dawn. After that we usually went to hippo’s jungle gym, to afterwards have our bones cracked into place in a professional Thai massage. The last part of the day consisted of finding the next nice restaurant to feed our stressed-out bodies with some protein. 😉 Again, responsibly as we are, we sacrificed a lot of time to work in a paradise like environment over the week but when the weekend came, we hit the road on our scooters and explored the island. Here is what we saw:

Even though there was almost nothing more to wish for in terms of our daily routine, I must say that I would have loved to see more of Koh Samui. The island is very beautiful and there are a lot more of nice activities that we didn’t try due to our sporty timetable. That island didn’t see me for the last time. In great governor Arnie’s words: I’ll be back!
