Silk Air will start flying from Singapore to Koh Samui three times a week at the end of September. This is great news as up to now, Bangkok Airlines has been the only carrier on this direct route. While the flight is excellent, it can be expensive. Silk Air looks as if it will offer cheaper flights and hopefully a little competition will be a healthy thing. See you on the beach!

Baan Pimalai is located on Bang Po or Bang Por beach, which is on the north coast of Koh Samui, a relaxed, Samui-speed 20 minutes drive from the international airport and 10 minutes from the old capital, Nathon.
Koh Samui itself is a small island of less than 230 km2 in the Gulf of Thailand (this means its beaches and waters are sheltered by Thailand that curves around this sea). The island is roughly triangular in shape with a gentle north coast of quiet communities, sandy beaches, swaying coconut palms and coral reefs … the perfect holiday destination!
