How to become a Samuian (Girl version)


Recommended Posts

Evening gents and lads

 

Last year when my friend moved to Koh Samui from Bkk (due to big lockdowns) she still didnt know the island and she enjoy doing fun youtube videos, we made one together.
We came up with a story where she needs to pass like a welcoming ritual and pass some fun challenges to become one of locals. Mostly to show how beautiful samui is.


Its been some time but its nice to reflect back last year, when island was isolated. it was chill and clan 😄 

Have a look and take a trip around our island with Kwang.

this was inevitable I guess but I won't be going back in a hurry. I'm glad I got to see it in the late '90s when Soi Green Mango was a muddy, potholed mess 😁

Was there in the mid 90;s.  Only beach huts and a few bars in those days

Samui was great, back in the early '90s, as a place to spend a night or two before moving on to Koh Tao for a few months of quiet tranquility.

Not any longer.

Never stuck in traffic - I ride a bike. I would never do that in Bangkok!

Live in Pattaya now, full face helmet, six lanes on Sukhumvit, 155 aerox to get up to 60kmh in 3sec

I used to go to Samui with my Thai girlfriend, now wife, in the 1970s. Absolutely gorgeous. We would hire  hammocks on the beaches for 20 baht a night. No cars, very few people. I will never go back.

I have lived on Samui for over 15 years.

 

Yes it has changed, but the Ring Road has improved massively even though it is still undergoing major improvements.

 

There are still many beaches to go where you may be totally alone (if you know where to look)....Which fortunately most tourists do not!

 

These are views from my garden at dawn!

Gen Y - that inserts the word LIKE wherever possible, but not needed.

I have a Swedish friend that moved to Samui 1974, the first car was the school bus. 

He was the only one one the island that could drive so he became the school bus driver.
