Samui is awesome. I was on honeymoon so I didn't see too many of the sights nor did we do too much partying >:D

My favourite part was the scooter trip we did around the island. As soon as you exit the main town and tourist places, it has a nice remote and rural feel to it. I'll post a pic or two once I can find them

Yes and it's dirt cheap. Actually I was shocked how expensive Mauritius was compared to Thailand.

Most scooter places will ask you to leave your passport. We booked through the hotel which is a bit more expensive but didn't require passports (or license for that matter). Think it was something like R80 per day through the hotel for a basic scooter.

We did a tourist trip around the island on a big 4x4 and went to some of the sights (giant buddha, mummified monk and a few others) plus it included elephant rides and that. Nothing spectacular but still fun. I presume you guys are staying in Chaweng? Apart from Chaweng, it's only a small part of the eastern side of the island that is geared for tourists. The rest feels really remote and I enjoyed going for lunch and beers in those parts. Plus you'll pay at least 50% less than at resorts for the same thing. We spent most of our time at a reggae bar on Chaweng beach. Forget what it's called now  O0

Back on topic if I may....


There are some fantastic restaurants on the island too. Takes a while to find the really good ones but it's worth it. Even at the fancy places, the biggest bill we had for two people was araound R500-R600

Eat at the local places. Very cheap, nie een van ons op die trip het troon koors gekry van local plekke nie.

Huur scooters.

As jy nie 95% van die tyd gesuip is nie dan doen jy dit nie reg nie. Dis anyway so HENTIE warm jy kan HENTIE baie drink.
