Why cant we speak the truth about thailand? It is what we see everyday so why can we not discuss it? 

Because you might hurt someones feelings like the Thais or others foreigners. But change never comes by hiding under the bed. Does it? But i say just vote with your feet AVOID those places altogether like i do. Of course the other option is start another forum.

Can't see any "uncrowded sandy beaches" in those, only an uncrowded swimming pool. Nice views though. :thumbsup:

I am neither interested in beaches (hate staying there) nor in girly bars (will come with my wife). I only want fresh air and a sea view from my accommodation, what should easier to get at Koh Samui because there are hills where I can find a condo or house to rent with sea view.

Odd that he didn't state exactly where on Samui these occurrences are supposed to have taken place.

One could visit Patong and then say the same thing about Phuket. but stay away from the most touristy parts of holiday destinations and you can have a completely different experience.

 

 

 

isn't that the whole point of going to a tourist place as a TOURIST? to see the touristy bits? if they wanted to trek through the jungle to some god foresaken arse-end of the island why bother going at all?

on a side note i lived on samui for 8 years but left 6 years ago. last year we went back and vowed never again. saw pretty much the same as the OP, even had one thai (burmese maybe) dude follow me along the road while i was riding a bike screaming "smoke, smoke" at me.. i had to tell him to eff off before he got the message, truly desperate looking place now (cheong mon btw for the wise-asses)

 

my sister in law is currently there bedding in some new tenants to her villa. she has been reporting that things do not look good there. one of the big hotels on chaweng beach just laid off 50% of its staff for low season as very few bookings, they have never done this before. also she said same story everywhere (she is well connected) down a lot this year.

 

its a shame because i absolutely loved that place but it just turned into a rat run with every road concrete either side unless i went up into the hills. also the crime and mafia was a massive problem, insane traffic (locals) plus the school fees were astronomical.

 

i hope it gets back on track but not holding out much hope

Why go to these places when there are many beaches elsewhere that are deserted mid week and they are glad of the custom. If you go to a tourist ghetto you should expect it to be grim.

 

Why not try here. Empty beach at Mae Phim :
