Customer Travel Tip: Do not take a scooter if you have no experience riding one.

Liked: There were some beaches with almost no people, which I explored by bicycle. They are quite far from everything though.

Disliked: Pretty much everything else. Koh Samui is just way too expensive. The prices around here make absolutely no sense when compared to the rest of Thailand.
