10 Reasons to Keep Calm & Visit Koh Samui


Due to the current political situation in the Kingdom of Thailand, there have been many questions asked regarding personal safety and security in Koh Samui. The answers to your questions are listed below and should assist you when deciding on your next holiday destination. To avoid potential collaboration and cover-up’s, we decided to question everyone who may have these elusive answers at the crack of dawn, all on the same day.  Our focus was on “speed and surprise”! We collectively pledged to not just scratch the surface, but to dig, yes dig, dig until there is no further to dig. If successful, we would reveal and distribute these answers in an accurate and concise fashion, forever relieving your mind of these sordid question marks that are currently clouding your every thought. We researched Thai history, we quizzed the locals, we grilled some of those in authority, we roasted others, we even had a quiet whisper in the ear of a Buddhist Monk.
Here are the answers to your questions….

Is there any chance of things “KICKING OFF” in Koh Samui? 

Yes, almost every night there is a party “kicking off” somewhere in Koh Samui.
These parties have resulted in many sleepless nights and some serious hangovers…. many more are expected. “Sangsom Buckets“, “Vodka-Red Bull Buckets” and “Local Beers” are all claiming responsibility for these headaches

Is it scary in Koh Samui now? 

YES, once a month, at the time of the Full Moon Party, Koh Samui becomes “very scary”.
You will see evil face-painting that will haunt you all night. You will jump over and around red hot flames that miss you by inches. You will see sights that you thought were only rumours!

Is there likely to be physical contact while I am in Koh Samui?

YES, we guarantee you will be exposed to physical contact during your holiday in Koh Samui.
We recommend physical contact at any of the high quality spa’s in Koh Samui. Physical contact is unavoidable in Koh Samui’s famous nightlife district, when dancing and partying at venues such as ARKbar, Sound Club, Bar Solo, Cha Cha Moon, Reggae Pub, Bondi and Green Mango. A welcome handshake from the local tailors is also most likely.

Is it dangerous in Koh Samui now?

Yes, the danger of getting “Thai Ring Sting” is high all year round in Koh Samui.
Consumption of certain Thai meals, such as som tum, pad grapow and tom yum, all of which are loaded with large amounts of hot chilli are the main cause of “Thai Ring Sting”. The majority of locals are now immune, however, most tourists will experience some level of discomfort the morning after eating these meals
