I am going to Thailand in a few months but I still don't know where to stay. I read many things about the northern islands. Some of them are beautiful but very touristy. Is there any place that is nice, but still without many tourists? I am thinking somewhere next to Ko Samui.

  • "Yes." - doesn't make for a useful Q/A though does it.

1 Answer 1


I lived on Ko Samui about 7 months from september 2013 to march 2014. I visited all the beaches of the island several times each one of them.

Most touristic

  1. Chaweng and Lamai As far as I can remember the most most touristic beaches are Chaweng and Lamai, but even so this doesn't mean that this beaches was full of tourists.

Golden mean

  1. Mae Nam I lived near Mae Nam from october 2013 to january 2014. I think this is the golden mean: not so many tourists and clean beaches.

Least touristic

  1. Lipa Noi I was on Lipa Noi beach several times and every time I saw there a few people.

  2. Taling Ngam My friends lived near Taling Ngam beach and they told that this is the most quiet place on Ko Samui.

  3. Bang Po I lived near Mae Nam from january 2013 to march 2014. Also quiet place, but mane seaweed in the water near beach.

  • @vitalkr - Thanks, that's a great answer now. We know what seasons you saw the state of these, and that you aren't just basing your opinion off one visit to each place.
