Samui beaches on the map

Samui is the second largest island in the KingdomThailand, and its dimensions are 20 to 16 kilometers. For comparison, it is a little more than the city of Tver. Those who spent more than one month on Samui do not need to use a map, but for beginners it can be very useful, especially when preparing for a trip. Also I have similar cards for Phuket.

I personally like google maps, which II consider it one of the best online maps for Thailand: there are photos of places, almost all streets and paths are present, there is map search and navigation. In addition to them, it is convenient to still use paper cards in place or their scans on a computer. They clearly give an idea of ​​what the areas and beaches on the island are and where they are located. And also you can immediately figure out where the attractions are located. Yes, the detailing of such cards sometimes leaves much to be desired, but every time I take them on the spot, I put a bike or car in the glove compartment, and the first days with them are very, very convenient.

These cards are available at the airport, shops, onracks of hotels or car rental. If you fly directly to Samui, then do not rush to buy a card in the shop of Suvarnapumi airport. Excellent free maps of several kinds, on good paper, are located in the lounge area of ​​Bangkok Airways, the only carrier from Suvarnapumi on Koh Samui.

About Samui beaches in general

If we consider the island globally, thenThe north, north-east and east coasts are lively and interesting for swimming. The south of the island has an extremely shallow and rocky bottom. It is not safe to swim here in places, but the scenery and color of the sea leave the impression of a bounty-tale. The western part of the island is not popular with the mass tourist, but differs in beautiful sunsets and stretches of coast, on which there are completely wild, isolated from people beaches. In the west, there are two main piers of the island of Samui, which does not add to the purity of the local ecology.

The most popular beaches of Koh Samui are: Chaweng. Lamai and Maenam. Chaweng Beach is considered the unofficial capital.entertainment island. Lamai Beach is the light version of Chaweng, although the length of both beaches is almost the same. Behind the Maenam beach, the reputation of a calm and family-like place with a “district” life falling asleep after dusk has long been entrenched.

My favorite beach on Samui is Maenam. A lot of shade, deep sea, no noisy parties and entertainment, a decent selection of cafes and two whole markets. As well as a convenient geographical position between the airport and the piers. There is a great combination of tranquility and infrastructure, and there are few people on the beach because of the small number of hotels, and those who stay for the most part live here.

No less attractive for us was the second beach, where we rented the first house - Bang Po. Being "through the wall" from Maenam, this beachdiffers deserted and quiet. Bang Po, this is an even more secluded version of Maenam. The sea is there for an amateur (children are good, adults are not very good), but I personally am ready to forgive him for the almost complete absence of people on the shore. True, after a month it becomes necessary to have more services within walking distance, and I want to go to a more civilized place.

If you come to Samui and are looking for accommodation, you can personally see what we have compiled. catalog of houses on Samuiwhere more than 80 houses with a map and a photo. Housing for a short period while looking for a house, you can zabukat through RoomGuru, it's just a mega-service, you can immediately see in which booking system (Booking, Agoda, Hotels, etc.) the hotel you need is cheaper. And we have our detailed review. best hotels in samui.

Supermarkets (Big C, Tesco, Macro) and the Central Festival shopping center are located between Bo Phutom and Chaweng, as well as the average size of Tesco therestraight on Lamai, why Lamai for many is quite an attractive beach. Actually, if I chose where we live with the child, I would choose between Maenam and Lamai.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
