maenam to chaweng-best way and how much please?


Am still looking about samui for somewhere to stay. Dont want to stay directly i Chaweng but want to be able to get there easy enough for the odd night out!

I looked at Banana Fan and Poppies as they are close but not too close but they are out of my budget.

Ive seen Moonhut bungalows in Maenam and i really like the look of them.

My question is...what is the easiest way to get from maenam to Chaweng and how much should I expect to pay?

Thanks V Much xx

Easiest or cheapest?

Easiest - Taxi.Price open to negotiation but expect to pay Bht200 to Bht300.

Cheapest - Songthaew.Again price negotiable.Local Thais would probably pay Bht15.You will probably be asked for Bht50.Try Bht30.

Have a look as well www.apartmentsamui.com for the guesthouse called The Lodge. It's on the beach, it's in Fisherman Village which is the most beautiful village on Samui and great place to stay , the guesthouse is fantastic, very beautiful with excellent service, you will not be disappointed. Also Bophut is closer to Chaweng than Maenam.

have been to samui in december and stayed at maenam village bungalows, right on the beach! for 1000 baht you get a really nice room, air con, fan, fridge and satellite tv as well as on suite toilet and hot shower, next door is a fantastic laid back restaurant overlooking the water,(beach was almost deserted) with excellent food, you can rent a motor bike from the english speaking proprieters (gina and m), a laundry service is offered, and all as cheap as chips, highly recomeended for quality low budget rooms, we are going back to samui in may and dont even want to look for other accomodation,
