Just been to Koh Samui and MY GOD!!!


Recommended Posts

What a hell hole. Makes phuket look like heaven. As soon as you leave your hotel you will be set upon by taxi barons offering you drugs and hookers and wont take no for an answer!!! Then when you get to the beach you will be constantly disturbed by local hawkers and tat sellers who will give you evil looks when you dont buy anything and say things like “why mr you no help me, you big money.

 

then there is the waitresses who talk s#*t behind your back when you dont leave a tip cos their service was diabolical.

 

samui, what the hell has happened to you? Thank god im back in phuket,, this place like heaven yall. 

 

Its all about the money money money.

My experience was much different. Not my fav place, but far from a hell hole. I think the beaches are not that great there though.

all the 'holiday ' destinations in Thailand are going to the dogs.  Environmentally they are deteriorating rapidly.  The locals are killing the industry with their greed and criminality and they don't seem to see what is coming. Given a very short time, Vietnam and Cambodia will kill the Thai tourist industry.

Greediest people i ever saw there bro. Took greed to a whole new level, one guy followed me for about 500m saying smoking and coke whilst making a sniffing sound. Weirdos

Wouldn't bother with Mafia run Koh Samui.  I was there for the first time 1 month ago, and for the LAST time forever.  Many more options in Asia and the world that has better beaches, immigrations, and people to spend my time and money.

I thought exactly the same thing about Phuket when I went there from Pattaya. An overpriced dump full of grasping people. Hard to imagine that Samui could actually be worse, but I'll take your word for it.

The idea that foreigners simply don't want every service and item up for sale never enters their heads. "Mr, why you not help me?" "Vendor, why don't you piss off and let me enjoy my holiday?"

And then they wonder why tourists don't come back a second time. Amazing.

Thailand's laisser faire policies towards tourism are slowly destroying the nations natural resources.

It seems that tourism this year is down up to 30%    .....  whether or not this is a glitch, you can be sure that the authorities reaction will be a nape-of-the-neck one that fails to look to the longer future or the sustainability of the industry.

However, I really don't think that posts saying "Phuket is better than Samui" have any validity whatsoever, just a poorly written subjective post about one person's prejudices.......waste of a keyboard.
