We stay in south chaweng when we're in Samui and love it, it's the quiet part of Chaweng but with a good choice of restaurants outside the hotel.

im a koh samui convert. we just came back from there 3 weeks ago and have booked to return in january. i found koh samui much more chilled the beach is beautiful and there are many resorts set right on the beach. nightlife starts a little later. there is no bangala road (which im a bit over to be honest). found the thai massages cheaper the ladies nicer however the shopping was not as good as in phukhet. i dont think we will return to patong any time soon

Whilst some people may find Patong beach not to their liking it is certainly not representative of PHUKET. Phuket has many beautiful beaches and unspoiled natural beauty. The island is over 500 square klms and the sex industry and unsavoury business practices are restricted to a VERY small area in relation to the total.

To state that Phuket is becoming "a bigger cesspit" on the experience of visiting Patong is a bit over the top.

You will find the prices way up in Chaweng now and on a par with Phuket. It is still far more relaxed mind you! Which is a good thing.
