Our favorite resort that combines the beauty of the beaches of the island (it is believed that they were better in Phuket) and all the necessary infrastructure. If you want a night life, you need to settle in Chaweng, although it is very far from Pattaya or Patong in this regard. If you want a quieter place, then Maenam and Chong Mon beach, the latter is considered by many to be the best for children. And something between them and a supermarket within walking distance – Lamai Beach. Koh Samui is much smaller than Phuket, so no matter what beach you live on, it will be possible to drive to the malls and parties on Chaweng in 20-30 minutes, and the whole island travels in an hour in a circle. Monthly housing for wintering camps is on every beach, the choice is big. Not the best logistics: almost all flights are more expensive than direct flights to Phuket. By land, the journey takes quite a long time, considering the 2-hour ferry ride.
