Went there in March this year. Nice place.
Not sure about Dec, but I do think the monsoon season is not the time to go...

hi vlim,

i hv been there years back... so writing base on memory.. :smile:

koh samui is actually a small island... i went there via cruise so basically, we did a drive (rented a jeep) & drove round the island in 1 day..

there are waterfalls, night markets, private beaches (depending on the hotel u stay)... most popular being Chaweng Beach area.. elephant camp..

u can join those day tours which bring u to places like temples, handicrafts factory... there is also this place (cant remember the name)... there's this natural rock formation which if u look from a certain angle, it resembles the man & woman's private genitals... :rotflmao:

they called it the ah gong & ah ma rock.. :lol:

of cos, if u hv the time, they hv trekking deep into the forests & mountain tops... or maybe u do island hopping... scuba diving...

what else... memory failing me... :oops:
