“Better beach elsewhere”
Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Chaweng beach is described as an attraction, but the water is not as beautiful as in Lamai and the center of town not interesting at all. You will find nicer in lamai or even other beaches of the island

“Great beach”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed Chaweng beach. Very central close to all the restuarants, shopping and pubs you need. The beach was very clean in the areas we visited close to Ark bar and Als resort. There is plenty of little markets you can buy almost anything. Do note that things are less expensive in Bangkok in places like Mbk.

Next year we will def be staying in Chaweng again!!!

“Good beach resort”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Good central spot, plenty of shopping, restaurants and safe beach. One side of resort is safe beach to swim and walk, the street side has everything you could need from shops, food outlets, pubs and massage shops...

“Chaweng town overrated and Jewelry shops”
Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

First time visiting Samui, feels like Blackpool with typical shops and massage salons
Spoilt by bad experience in LEKS FINE JEWELRY SHOP in the town.
Bought overpriced jewelry.and verified as not real gemstones later and to top it all,
they offered to clean my ring and and it came back to me a couple of sizes smaller.!!
Talk about daylight robbery. So disgusted I won't ever buy again in Thailand full stop.
They need to regulate shops like That. DON'T BUY FROM THEM!
