Samui Wining & Dining
A Warm Welcome

A Warm Welcome

In many ways, this is generally a serene time of the year for Samui. The fun of Songkran has passed once again, and Easter is over for another year. But that only means that there’s even less to think about – and that’s just what you need for a quiet and relaxing break.

          

And the weather is just about at its gentlest right now. The harsh, dry days back in February and March have merged into cooler temperatures, a scattering of clouds, and the occasional light shower which passes pleasantly after half an hour or so.

          

This is the perfect time to take a leisurely trip around the island, and although Samui has become more up-market than it used to be, there is still a plethora of things to do and see. And once you get a little way off the ever-present ring-road, there are still deserted beaches and little fishing villages to be found.

          

This is what is so unique about this island. It may have been fun being a hippy back in the 1970s, but the price to pay for that was electricity that went off all the time, no hot water, no bread, coffee or dairy products, few banks and no ATMs. At least today, you can throw yourself into party-town or retreat into the unspoiled wilds of Samui. That’s the choice you now have – and that can’t be bad!
