Koh Samui main street runs parallel to Chaweng Beach and has hundreds of shops, restaurants & pubs. Central Festival is a huge new shopping mall with all to usual outlets. On the ground floor in this photo is my favourite restaurant The Wine Connection.
Central Festival is in Koh Samui main street
The shopping mall covers a huge area from Koh Samui main street to the back road beside the lake.
There is a food court, Starbucks, lots of restaurants, phone shops and all the fashion houses.
Solo is one of the many popular bars on Koh Samui main street.
Lots of massage parlours.
A one hour massage is around B300 however you can find them as low as B200 if you look around.
Entrance to all the beach-side hotels is from the Koh Samui main street, here is where I usually stay at the Baan Chaweng. The location is perfect, for an excellent room rate just book through THIS LINK.
Thailand is famous for it’s LadyBoy shows and Samui is no different. If that’s what you want to see then Starz is the place to go.
Lots of fresh seafood
There are many restaurants offering fresh seafood all along Koh Samui main street.
Sports pubs are everywhere in Koh Samui main street
All these sports pubs have multiple screens showing sport from all over the world.
As you can see Chaweng Beach is only 15 minutes from the airport. Be careful when organising transport to & from your hotel, the majority of people will overcharge you. For instance our hotel told us a taxi would cost B200 for one person and B300 for two people, how ridiculous is that?
I think Samui airport is the nicest airport I have ever flown to or from.
We took a 4 hour taxi ride around Koh Samui at a cost of B2000, it was a great way to explore the delights of this wonderful tropical island, we had a very nice lady driver, her name in Ying and her mobile is 09 1128 3867. Check out some of the great things to see, just follow THIS LINK.
