I'm not speaking for Rivo... but I know you'll prefer Lamai.... unless you like backpackers, and Indian suit tailors... :grinner:

That's not fair...555

Chaweng is better for romantic dinners on the beach, better for disco hopping, has many more places with live music, more choice in restaurants and massage places..

I agree with your choice, though.. Lamai is defenately more relaxed and laid back..

Depends what nightlife your after VG, I think youve got a week on Samui ? If so Lamai is alot easier getting around, no traffic gridlocks, my advice is stay in Lamai and there is plenty of entertainment and massages for you, after about 3 days catch a taxi into Chaweng for the night, the Green Mango Area is where the crowds are.


Touch base with Bacwaan, you dont get a better host than Nels and he should be getting paid by the Thai Tourist Bureau IMO Ps You can try your Thai language on him aswell.

I do hope to get together with nels while I'm there, for sure. Going to be there for 6 nights total, from November 6 - 11, leaving on the 12th for Nakhon Si Thammarat, and then on to Krabi.

So Lamai first, since I'll be staying right there at the Lamai Inn 99, I think its called, and then venture further afield from there.

I remember a live band interrupting the rugby.... 555

And the Irish bar we moved to. They used to have live music quite often... have they stopped?

There is one bar on the main road with live music, popular rock with a pretty hot lady singer..
And there was a basement bar a bit further south, but I think it closed after..

Chaweng had a couple good one's.. But last time the live reggae bar had closed, and the others were highly influenced by their family type clients..

yes, Lamai over Chaweng anytime..

Bacwaan, did you get to see Job2Do at Hin Ta Ya just before new years last year?
Was there 3 days before, but already booked to fly back north..
