Which chapters of The Koh Samui Guide were most helpful?
The top five didn’t completely surprise me:
- Things to do on Koh Samui
- Beaches and hotels (where to stay)
- Transport (how to get around)
- Exploring Koh Samui (day trips)
- Food and drink
What does surprise me is that bird-watching has the same size audience as caring for your children. (I mean, fair enough, you’re on vacation).
