Koh Samui - The Beaches of Koh Samui

Bo Phut BeachThe beaches of Koh Samui vary in quality and type of sand. The ones that are on the sea-frontage of hotels can be crowded

General information:

Topless or nude sunbathing is forbidden in Thailand Koh Samui nude beach? No not here. Be warned - This lady got away with it but you may not!

Koh Samui topless beach? Topless or nude sunbathing is forbidden in Thailand - It is against the strict morality code. So is petting and other 'indecent acts'.

Drunkenness won't be tolerated anywhere in public either.

Licensed hawkers and vendors wear tabards with licence numberOn many of the tourist beaches there are licensed hawkers and vendors that wear tabards with their licence number clearly displayed on the back. They are constantly patrolling the tourist area selling ‘tourist tat’ or fake designer watches etc. To avoid being bothered by them just avoid eye contact with them or their goods. If they do approach you a wave of the hand to signal your disinterest is usually enough. If you use the beach for a couple of days they will recognise you and generally leave you alone.

The Thais are a polite people that appear happy even though many are surviving in quiet desperation! We can however recommend the hot food, fruit and fixed price ice cream vendors.
