After Chiang Mai, we headed towards Ko Samui, a beautiful island. Choeng Mon Beach was the area, our hotel was situated. It is a little calmer than the more famous Lamai and Chaweng beaches. On the other hand, it offers a more idyllic small beach, beautiful hotels and still plenty of possibilities to have great food. In the end, I think it was a very good choice to stay there.
We were also pretty lucky with the weather. A week of sunshine followed by heavy floodings on the last day, that lasted several weeks after we left.
