Places to go

22.08.2011,  Bophut 

From all the places in Samui, the one which I miss the most is Fishermans Village in Bophut.

This is the place where I start my day with a cup of coffee in Karma Sutra, this is the place where I work during the day, this is the place where I eat in the evening with my family and friends and this is the beach which I love the most ( not for swimming though  - for the views).

Fisherman's Village is a very nice place and has got a very special vibe, whether you visit it in the morning when the village is slowly waking up, or in the evening for a romantic meal on the beach or on Friday for Walking Street market.  Come anytime - you won't be disappointed. Just remember that this place is not about the quality of sand on the beach,  but about atmosphere, good food, good shopping, friendly people and beautiful views. 
Most of the lovely guesthouses in the village are located right on the beach and have amazing views to Phangan, these views you won't get anywhere else in Samui... And moored boats make it all very scenic and picturesque. 

I will write more about it when I get back, but today I asked my assistant Golf to take a few pics of Bophut beach and send them to me while I am still in London, so she did. I just want to share them here with you.

  1. So glad I found your blog via trip advisor. We are due to arrive in Koh Samui in 4 weeks staying at Ibis Bophut.

    I will definitely try to the thai massage and fishermans village. Do you recommed anything further?

    1. I would recommed you to take a day boat trip to Angthong Marine Park and also to rent a car for a day and drive around the island, go to the south of Samui, it's very beautiful there.
