Chaweng Beach – where everything happens in Koh Samui

Earlier this year we spent a few days in Thailand, to be more specific Koh Samui. Without a predetermined agenda, and with two fully charged cameras, we learned a little about their culture and driving on the wrong side of the road, uhu.

Here is a small collection of photos from our stay.

This is a common sight on the streets, day and night; unfortunately we never tried what they had to offer, maybe next time.

Walking out of the blue

Every day during our visit to Koh Samui we took a long walk on Chaweng Beach with the camera ready to capture some fun and surprising moment. I can nearly hear this couples conversation. “Honey, are you sure that you dropped anchor? What, I thought you did that”.

The (un)connected family of 2015. As soon as the little boys parent started to tweet or update their Facebook pages, he ran as fast as he could out into the water to play. I assume he didn’t care about checking in or tagging at all.

She wasn’t the first or last one to take a photo of the Grandfather Rock. Luckily she didn’t need to go down on her knees to succeed.

As you can see, everything happens on the beach more or less. During 2015 I read about it is now possible to hire your own selfie photographer, assume it’s only for rich people on vacation, could this be one of them?

This looks like a common thing to do for the Asian people on vacation, walk out in the water, fully dressed. It was different couples every day but the same photographer as I recall. I assume they made this little photo shoot to have a nice memory from their honeymoon.

Abbey Road or Chaweng Beach

Abbey Road

Just sit relaxed on the beach and the photo moment will walk by sooner or later. This one could be an album cover for the new upcoming girl band with the band mates; Pauline, Bingo, Joanne and Georgina. You can already see their groupies lying in front of their feet’s.

Big Buddha

Big Buddha

I mention culture above and of course we need to include the Big Buddha as well. A 12 meter golden statue built back in 1972. A must visit if you are on Koh Samui. To get a better picture of Koh Samui, take a look at our Google map from our stay.
