Ko Samui Thailand is where I have lived for the past 5 months.
We moved here on a whim and have decided to stay for a while. This place, as great as it is, is made even greater because we can choose at anytime to go to one of the other nearby Thailand islands - Ko Pha-ngan or Ko Tao. We could also take a Seatran ferry over to Don Sak Pier and head to Surat Thani or Nakhon si Thammarat - both bigger cities.
Ko Samui is fine for most times though. No need to leave the island very much at all. We find that we're rarely bored. We're simple folk. Simply nuts sometimes, but, that's simple too - yes?
Ko Samui is coming into full-swing with the hoards of (hordes?) of tourists running around. It's not quite the quiet peaceful island we had for a few months when we first got here. I'd been here before when samui was a madhouse with tourists and accidents and drunks sleeping on the sidewalks.
We're not quite at THAT point yet, but we will be... we will be.
If you've never been to Ko Samui you really should come. It's cheap and it's a nice atmosphere. If you want party atmosphere - go to Chaweng or Lamai beach. Lamai is for the bargirl scene if that's what you're after. Chaweng is where more girl tourists are too. Girls and guys. Lamai has the bargirls.
Ko Samui Thailand has some good food and even better things to do. There are lots of waterfalls with hikes leading up to them, day trips, and things to see. Don't miss the dead mummified monk. If you can, get to see the snake farm on the south side of the island - a girl works there that is in guiness book of world records ... she is called "scorpion queen". haha! She married snake boy or something. Anyway - the cobras at this snake place are amazing. VERY aggressive.
Ok - have fun in Ko Samui Thailand!
