Corona brought me to Koh Samui! (Day 3 Chaweng Buri Resort Beach and Hotel Shots / Koh Samui Airport )

This will serve as the final post of my Koh Samui trip by Corona, as well as the last day. If you are un-familiar, you can check out my Day 1 and Day 2 in Koh Samui.


Day 3 started with a sober me waking up and actually having an appetite and enjoying my hotel breakfast


After breakfast I had to take some more photos of the resort before I head to the airport.

The walkway towards our room. Everything about the resort is just so serene and relaxing, I could stay more than a week here I reckon, taking long walks by the beach in the evening. Taking a long dip on the beach in the morning and not giving a care if my complexion turns dark. Then having a wild night at the pub and repeat it all over again in the morning.

A sign telling us where we were, and some information on some local point of attractions

A small corner near the pool and the beach where you can have a light suntan if you don't fancy the sands

The poolside for those who don't like the salty seawater.

some beach shots


Met up with a friendly local beach resident, who stayed around and played with us :

Just see how clean and unpolluted the stretch of the beach is, now if only the ones in M'sia are half as clean as this.

The lone coconut by the beach side intrigued me so I made it a point to shoot some shots of it

A really close shot of the waves, risked wetting my camera at that point

Our flight back to reality was scheduled at 2pm so we went and packed up around noon.


Initially we arrived with only 2 luggage but ended up with an additional bag as we bought a ton of instant noodles and snacks. Was pretty sure we hit the baggage limit but fortunately we didn't ;-)

A picture with Liang, whom I met on the trip. Don't you think he looks like the evil twin of Mike Yip from http://mikeyip.com/ ?

Reached the Koh Samui Airport in like less than 15 minutes and we still had plenty of time after checking in our luggage, so took the chance to take a few pictures of the unique Airport design.

Some macro shots of the flowers. Don't know what flower this is.

Noticed this funny looking chair, and guess what happened next :

"Yea, paint me like one of your french girls"

This is what happens when you ask for a spontaneous pose.

It was rather hot at the airport as it was somewhere in the afternoon so we spent our last meal in Koh Samui here :

DSCF9079
At Swensens, which I think is my first time in this establishment

DSCF9076
Them girls choosing their ice-cream flavors, though if I had the choice, every ice-cream would be chocolate related flavors

DSCF9081
A rose by any other name...?

DSCF9088
Our 'meal' arrived :)

DSCF9093
The perfect thing for a hot afternoon, ice-cream fondue

DSCF9095
The cost was about 400 baht for the whole meal

Before reaching our gate for departure, we reached on this short bridge which had some nice pond scenery

Running off from the crowd to take one final picture of the trip, before getting whisked off by security for being a nuisance

That concludes my trip to Koh Samui, thank you Corona Malaysia, for this wonderful trip. I am now plotting my next trip back here and we had a short discussion on staying here for an entire month by renting a bungalow and boozing everyday doing absolutely nothing and just partying the night away. But at this point it is just a pipe dream as we head back to reality and continue our rat race.

Hi, Neat post. I truly appreciate this post. I have been looking everywhere for this! Thank goodness I found it on Bing. I was looking for Samui seaview villa for sale for investment purposes. You’ve made my day! Thank you again!
