You gotta go to jatucheck (probably butchered that spelling) market.  It’s like nothing I’ve seen before.  One of the largest open markets selling everything from clothing, to pets, to home decor and evening in between.  And sooo cheap.

There’s a ton more, but I need to check when I get home for names of stuff.

@hollyberry4:  there is tons to do on koh Tao but more along the lines of restaurants and massages. If you’re looking for night life or lots of shopping it falls kinda short. But it’s great for the laid back atmosphere and chill vibe. The beaches alond siree beach are fantastic. Great massage and spas along there. But if you’re looking to do more than just eat and lay on the beach stick with koh Samui. The ferry is nice but it’s a means to an end. and there’s nothing to do on the ferry itself ans you see ocean for about 1.25 hours before you see land either way. So yeah sick with koh samui. It’s fun to see all you can but it does get tiring moving around all the time. Enjoy four days on Samui and relax 🙂

This is almost exactly what me and my BF did a few years ago, however I would ask how into cultire and temples etc you are because Koh Tao is paradise and I would sacrifice a little time in Chang MAi ( which is great) for more time in Koh Tao

I have been married (to the same man) since 1987.  Let me give you some good advice.

Don’t try to do too much.  This is your honeymoon.  There needs to be plenty of time for sex.  Make sure you have a few lazy days to enjoy each other as well as a few busy days to see the sights.

Enjoy a boat trip.  Sit in a cafe and watch the world go by.  

Take an umbrella so that you can kiss even in the tropical rain.  

Stroke an elephant.  Meet a monk.

Leave a flower at a temple. Go to a beach and watch the stars.  Eat in the candlelight of a cave.

Do less than you planned.

Enjoy each other more than you ever thought was possible.

Do a trip to the floating markets about 1hr or 2 outside of Bangkok—Fantastic experience and amazing fresh food served right on the boats.  Eat food from the street stalls—its different but again, something you probably won’t experience again.  Go to the temples in Bangkok–make sure you are dressed appropriately (they’ll lend you shirts cover your arms if you forget and head out in a tank top). Kho San Road in Bangkok if you want nightlife and are missing seeing Westerners.


I’ve heard Chang Mai is fantastic but I’ve never been.  If you go to Phuket, skip Pantong–its dirty and party central—there are better places to visit on Phuket.  Not sure if you can do a day trip from Kho Samui to Phi Phi Island, but do it if you can—I know you can do it from Phuket.  Its gorgeous sheer cliffs that rise out of tourquoise water–Amazing! 

If you hire motorbikes, just be really careful—there doesn’t seem to be any real traffic rules, and people just go anywhere they want on the roads.  Go to a tailor and get clothes made.  you can get great suits tailor made for super cheap—and they do it so quick–a few days max.  Have a blast!
