XPDC SOMTAM, KUALA LUMPUR - HATYAI - KOH SAMUI 14 - 19 SEPT 2014





This XPDC started when Hairel from MPPJ request me to organise a trip to Koh Samui. After a few discussion we decided on the date, 14 - 19 September 2014. A total of 6 cars joing the trips. Hairel and family, Acai and gang from JB, Meklin and family, Hariel's friend, Reena and friends and myself.

Our first stop was Hatyai. We stayed at Plytawan Hotel which is right behind the khlong Hae Floating Markket

PLYTAWAN RESORT, HATYAI







KHLONG HAE FLOATING MARKET, HATYAI




Next morning we travel to Don Sak, ferry terminal to Koh Samui via route 408 and 401.
Arrived at the terminal in the afternoon. In Don Sak there is 2 ferry terminals that can take you to Koh Samui i.e Raja Ferry Port and Seatran Ferry.  The schedule for Raja Port Ferry from Don Sak to Koh Samui start at 0500hr to 1900hr and from Koh Samui start from 0500hrs to 1800hrs. Seatran Ferry start at 0600 hr to 1900 hr from Don Sak and 0730hr to 20.30hr from Koh Samui.







We arrived at the island around 4.00 pm local time. There we meet our friend Pak Nordin (9W2NYC). Pak Nordin lead us to Samui Seabreeze Place, the hotel along the Lamai beach. Later in the evening we went for a dinner at Samui Malay Seafood which located inside the fisherman village. (N9*26'21.2"E100*01'18.4"). I fully recommended this place. The food is very tasty and the price is reasonable. The only problem is that we had to call the restaurant and place the order before going there. If not you had to wait for your food. Tel:0813974090.

Next morning we had our breakfast at the same fishing village but this time we bought our food behind the big mosque.



After breakfast we went to  Chaweng Beach. Along the way we stop at the View Point to snap some photo and enjoying the beautiful panoramic view

From there we went to the town and stopped at Hatyai Central for window shopping.
Our friends from JB, Acai, Zuraimi and 1 more cannot remember his name, went for a shopping spree until we went to visit Grand Pa and Grand Ma and they are still shopping at the shopping Complex.





At Hatyai Shopping Central we break into 2 group. Acai and Gangs stayed and continue their shopping while the rest of us proceed to our next stop. visiting Grand Pa and Grand Ma.
