819. Koh Samui Part 6 | Snapshots

Koh Samui view
Hi everyone! We are currently in Chiang Mai and have been here for a week already. So far we have just done a lot of walking around the city. It's very quiet and laid-back here; like Bangkok but way less hectic. I will post more about Chiang Mai eventually but for now I still have some Koh Samui posts left. Here are some random photos taken during our days there..I just realized it has only been a week since we left Koh Samui but already feels like a long time!

Ling Coffee Koh Samui Ling Coffee Koh SamuiA cafe named Ling Coffee that was close to the place we stayed originally..so we came here quite a few times.

This place named The Secret Brunch was close to where we stayed during the final days on the island. Their avocado bagel is amazing!! I don't usually order bagels (or sandwich types) like this but this was sooo good. I got it every time.

As you can see..the beaches were quite empty. Most of the time we were the only ones there, apart from a few locals fishing. It was really nice and peaceful. I've never been to Koh Samui before but I assume that in "normal times" it is way busier. I don't think I would enjoy it as much if it were full of tourists. It seems having the beaches to ourselves is kind of a once in a lifetime opportunity there.

There is also this sad reality of many businesses around Thailand..especially in the tourist strips. Shut down and abandoned, no idea when or if they will be back in business again. I did say I enjoy it more when it's quiet but I hope things improve soon and that the businesses are able to survive. I would like to come back in some years to experience a livelier atmosphere.

Koh Samui beach Koh Samui food
I really like these roadside eateries. Often a small open space with plastic tables and chairs, with the food being served within minutes of ordering. They look super local and authentic. Usually the best tasting food can be found at these and for very cheap prices (~$2 per plate).

koh samui street cats
Feeding the street cats. It was only during our final days here (when we started staying at Wild Cottages/our second accommodations) that we saw a few street cats at this area near the end of our road. The rest of the island has a lot of street dogs so I usually carry around some dog treats to feed them. Here I got a pack of cat treats for the cats but this black one was more into getting pet:
