RatingPickup Chance of picking up: 4 / 5

Provided your game is not atrocious, and by that I mean hiding yourself away from the world when you should be out mingling with girls, you shouldn't find it too difficult to get a hookup. There are a few details that you need to consider, such as where to go and how to approach girls, but generally everything is made easy by the fact that girls are there to have a good time just like you are. Be free. Have as many conversations with as many girls as you can and something will likely come of it. Also, when it comes to party time, don't be afraid to go straight for what you want.

Tips for Daytime

RatingDaytime Chance of picking up at daytime: X.X / 5

Being an island, your daygame is dependant on your beach body and personality. You could have one and not succeed. Let's say your beach body is ready with a glorious six pack and ripped pecs, but if you do not have the conversational game to approach girls and seal the deal, you won't make any progress. Likewise, you could have the conversation ability of Shakespeare at his peak, but if you look like a fat waste of space, you won't get any luck. It's all about presenting the right package, especially on a vacation island where all girls want is a fling with a really hot guy. If you fulfil this role, you could have a different girl every day. Thus, you need to have a beach body (hit the gym before you book your trip) and the confidence to pickup girls without shame. Do this, and you will have a fantastic time in Ko Samui.

Best Places to Meet Girls

As with any island paradise, the first place you should go to is the beach. There are many foreign girls on the beach, and a few of the Eastern European girls enjoy tanning topless. If you have a good beach body, it is fairly easy to find a hot girl on the beach. However, it does take more than just a nice body; your conversational ability needs to be up there, too. If you are going with the purpose of meeting girls, stick to Chaweng and Lamai Beach. The have the most visitors and it's the hub for all of the tourists.

Chaweng Beach

Malls are also a great place to find girls, and you have the added option of chatting up local Thai women, too. They are shy an soft spoken, but they also adore westerners. The biggest barrier between a Thai girl and a foreigner is the language, so keep the English simple but also give her compliments.

If you are after tourists in Ko Samui, the mall also supplies your needs. There are a host of girls who go to coffee shops or restaurants or simply walking about browsing. If you find a pretty girl, just walk up to her and introduce yourself. The festive mood of the island gives you a free pass into most girls' conversations, so use this as an advantage. The best malls are as follows:

  • Central Festival Mall
Central Festival Mall
  • Big C
  • Tesco Lotus

Markets are also a great way to meet girls, as everyone flocks to the streets for a deal on a meal or knock-off t-shirts. As it stands, the Chaweng Market is one of the hotspots in town, with all the local delicacies you can think of and a few clothing stalls scattered in between. There are lots of foreign girls to chat up, and you can head straight from the market to the beach or a club together.

Chaweng Market

Other Markets include:

  • Chaweng Walking Street
  • Lamai Night Plaza
  • Elephant Walk Ko Samui
  • Fisherman's Village Walking Street

Beach Clubs are definitely the best way to get close to a few really hot foreigners.

There are only 4 beach clubs which you should consider:

  • Ark Beach club

Tips for Nighttime

RatingNighttime Chance of hooking up at nighttime: X.X / 5

There is a great chance of you finding a hook-up. There are loads of girls around and the party atmosphere makes things even easier. Suddenly, girls who would probably be difficult to even strike up a conversation with in their home countries are friendly and flirtatious. You also have the option of trying out multiple ethnicities and nationalities.

There are risks with hooking up. The local girls that hang around clubs are mostly prostitutes. Everything seems normal, as most guys get excited when they finally land a hot girl and take them back to their hotel. Unfortunately, they are often rudely awakened in the morning when the girl asks them for money. Only then do they realize the mistake they made the night before. Don't be like that guy. Besides that, there is also the risk of running into trannies. They pretend to be females, but can get really aggressive if you take them back to your hotel room.

If you hook-up from a club, stick to the international talent. There is lots to choose from with little risk of hiring a prostitute or getting involved with a ladyboy. Starting a conversational is as simple as introducing yourself and asking girls if you can buy them a drink and enjoying the night together. You'll quickly know which way the night is going to lean.

Best Nightclubs to Meet Girls

RatingLooks Nightlife in general: 5 / 5

In terms of a party island, Ko Samui is up there with the best in the world. Besides the ones mentioned there are still a few great clubs where you can have a good time from morning until the following dawn. The openly drawback is the amount of prostitutes and trannies around, but if you are discerning, you can spot them a mile away. Besides, the real talent is in the Russian and Eastern European women who holiday in Thailand.

Mature Ladies and Cougars

Ko Samui is definitely a party destination; thsu, you mostly find younger women who are keen to hookup and mingle with guys. The older women (in the milf range) are generally traveling with their husbands and families. They stay at resorts and prefer Phuket over Ko Samui as there is less of a party vibe and a more family friendly environment. Thus, you may struggle to find older women in Ko Samui. The best way to find a milf or cougar would be to use a dating apo and set your age range higher.

Dating

When visiting Ko Samui, dating can be a fun and interesting experience. AdultFriendFinder.com, lets you meet local members in Ko Samui and get to know them on a personal basis before you arrive. It just takes a few minutes, you simply create an account, upload a few images and tell a little about yourself.

Top Dating Tips

A tropical paradise is the perfect description of a date. You don't need to put in that much effort to knock a girl's socks off, but you need to strategically allow nature to do the work for you. No matter where you are in the world, mind you, coffee

Online Dating

Tinder is a great platform for Ko Samui, as all the foreign girls who are looking for some holiday action will be on the platform. Expect a few matches with people close by and try and take the connection to the beach or a café as soon as possible. There are loads of local sex workers and trannies on the app, so beware of that.

  • ThaiCupid - The largest Thai dating site with over 1.5 million members.
  • WeChat is also a popular platform if you re looking for local girls; however, you will have to risk meeting prostitutes and ladyboys. There are also many scams on the platform. Many of these girls are professional sugar daddies.
  • Badoo is a great app for the whole of Thailand for two reasons. Firstly, it has gained traction with the locals, which means that you get to try out some Asian persuasion should you feel the need to. Secondly, it is popular with European citizens - the majority of the visitors to the Island. The cons are that you will have to scroll through a handful of prostitutes every day - ladyboys too.

What Kind of Guys Have the Best Chances

If this was the rest of Thailand, you would say that white guys dominated the hook-up market and that no other race stood a chance. Fortunately for those who do not fit into this category, there is hope. Thai girls love white guys; they find them attractive and they almost have god-like statuses. They are seen as providers and the holders of utmost sophistication. However, in Koh Samui, you really want to catch a hot tourist who is enjoying the party as much as you. This opens up the door to a lot of opportunities. Even black guys (a racial profile that does not have much luck in Thailand) has a shot with some of the central European girls on vacation. The only people who may struggle are Chinese or other Asian groups (Japanese guys have good chances with local girls).

Risks while Gaming

As far as possible,. try not to get into a fight with any of the locals. For some reason, the local men seem to have a distrust and aversion towards foreigners. If you happen to annoy one of them, apologize straight away - even if you think you were in the right. He may seem like a small target and an easy victory, but other men who aren't involved in the fight will get involved and attack you. Unless you want to fight 5 - 10 angry Asian dudes, calm the situation down before it escalates.

Prostitutes are another risk, and they are everywhere. They wait around the clubs and knowingly trick men into sleeping with them. The best case scenario is that you wake up in the morning and she asks for money. The worst case is that you end up getting robbed in your sleep. STDs are also an issue, as prostitutes are known to carry some sort of STDs. Some of them do not clean themselves properly after seeing other clients and most do not have the education to know how germs, bacteria and diseases work.

Everyone knows that Thailand has an epidemic with ladyboys. You have to be careful.

How to Get Laid as Soon as Possible

The best way, hands down, is to head out and join the party after the sun sets. There are party goers from all over the world in Ko Samui, and many of the girls are looking to have some fun just like you are. The international girls are, more often than not, spoiled students who have been given money from their parents to blow off some steam with her friends in a different country. For every one girl, there is likely to be an entire social circle of single girls. You can start by making friends with these girls before selecting the hottest one to try your luck with.

Note: with friendship groups, you will often run your chances with the others by going for one. As a result, be sure of your choice and that the attraction is mutual. With so much alcohol around, it isn't difficult to tell what's on a girl's mind.

Alternatively, you can hook up with the local girls if Asian Persuasion is what you are after. Avoid hooking up with the girls from clubs. They are dodgy and likely to be prostitutes of ladyboys. Instead, you can try your luck during the day - either on the beach or at the malls or shopping centres. Simply approach them and ask them out for coffee or an ice cream.

Swinger Clubs and Naturism

There are no public swinger clubs in Ko Samui. In fact, this is largely due to the liberal and open prostitution around. It's way too difficult to order such a chaotic industry in the form of one club, which means that there are no adult or swinger clubs around. If you want to partake in a swinging group, the best thing to do is to head to online platforms, although it isn't a common idea with the locals so you may struggle to find anyone at all.

Costs of Living

CostsDay Single traveler’s budget per day: US$20 - $200

You need no more than $20 to survive a day in Ko Samui. If you live the lifestyle of a local instead of a tourist, you will be surprised how cheap it can be. However, the locals do not come for the party, so drinks will bump your budget up to $30. Alternatively, you can live it up for $200 - which is an all inclusive pass to absolute luxury and fun.

CostsAccommodation Accommodation per night: US$5 - $150

The accommodation options vary. There are options that speak to luxury in every detail, and very basic living arrangements that cost no more than a Big Mac in some countries. If you budget on $100, you can get a 4-star hotel close to the beach without any hassle at all. Somewhere between $50 and $80 gets you the same but further away from the shore. On the lower side of the budgeting scale, you can find a hostel for as cheap as $5, but you really should spend $10 to get something near the beaches and clubs. The uber wealthy get luxury villas. Some cost as much as $700, but that is extravagant for one night. A $150 5-star hotel is more than enough to get you the utmost comfort on the beach.

CostsBeerBottle Beer in a grocery shop: US$1 - $1.50

The local beers are cheap. The imported beers are more expensive, but they do taste worst. You can get a bottle for just over $1 and the upper bound will be $1.50. Some of the convenience stores are more expensive, so don't buy beer from them if you can help it.

CostsBeerBar Beer in a bar or restaurant: US$2 - $3

Alcohol is cheap no matter where you go. The buckets of beer are economical options for partyers. If you head to some of the beach clubs, yo may have to pay over $2 for a beer, but you shouldn't have to pay more than $3 no matter where you go.

CostsMeal Meal in a restaurant: US$1 - $10

The best way to eat is to emulate the locals. While the hotel menu may seem appetizing, there are plenty of market stalls around hat sell a variety of local delicacies. You can get a meal for under $2 - one that fills you and maybe some change left over for a scoop of coconut ice cream. The curries, seafood and chicken pad thais are absolutely delicious, some of the most interesting flavours in the world and extremely healthy.

Alternatively, you can head to a local restaurant and pay around $5 for a meal. It is quite a bit more expensive, but you have the comfort of dining at a table. Fast food is expensive, especially beef. If you get burger king or McDonalds the price will be close to $7 for beef options.

Accommodation

Ko Samui is a really fun place with lots to offer and a superb nightlife. Your choice of areas in which to stay is largely dependant on your budget and the proximity to clubs. No girl wants to take a half an hour ride back to a hotel, apartment or hostel in the back of a songthaew. Thus, you often lose your chance of getting laid if you stay too far away from the action, especially if you are going to rely on the night game to get you going. So, here are three hand-picked areas to ensure that your game is as successful as Thailand is fun:

Cheweng - the main town in the island. Cheweng has everything the single playboy could ask for: accommodation options that vary in price depending on your budget, a host of foreign girls who seem to increase in number by the day, the best nightclubs on the island and picturesque beaches.

Lamai - Another fantastic destination that has it all. Picture pumping clubs during the night and gorgeously warm beaches with sunbathing Russian students during the day. They also have a few resorts which are absolutely fun, and they double as great pick-up spots, too.

Maenam - The lower budget version of Lamai and Cheweng. There are lots of hostels around, which can mean more students who are keen to party it up. The nightlife is good, but not as good as the former areas. You may have to take a trip to Cheweng to experience Ko Samui properly.

How to Get There and Move Around

By air: The bustling tourist island is so busy that it has an international airport all to itself. Samui International Airport has cafes, restaurants and kiosk stores to get you started on the island. Moreover, you can get a bus, taxi or tuk tuk to your hotel. Try and avoid the cheesy salesmen from the tourist companies; they sell itineraries at a huge mark-up to foreigners - and they are persistent.

Bangkok Airways A319 at Samui International Airport

By bus: The Songthaew is the Samui version of a bus. Instead of a huge, traditional bus, Ko Samui drivers use pick up trucks with benches in the back. They fit around ten people and take you wherever on the island you need to go.

By car: Taxis are available, but are not that common. Most people prefer the Songthaews or scooters. They are more efficient and cheaper than a taxi. Alternatively, you can rent a car. However, these are meant for families with kids. It is a waste for a single man to rent an entire car and expensive.

By train: The only trains that run on Ko Samui are on the inter-province rails. You can take a train from Bangkok to Ko Samui and vice versa. However, you cannot use the train to get from one part of the island to the other.

By motorcycle: Motorcycles and scooters are a popular way for tourists to get around on the island. They are cheap and you won't have to spend much in fuel. You can find a rental shop nearly anywhere unless you are staying deep in the jungle.

Bikes and cars in the Island

By boat: You can hire a speed boat or take a ferry to get to other smaller islands or to another province really easily. These trips are frequent and they are available for most of the day. There are also snorkelling and diving expeditions - for a fee of course.

Boats in Ko Samui

Visas: Thailand is one of the more open countries. As a westerner, you are allowed access for 30 days (bar Russia who is allowed 90). If your time in the country is about to expire, you can simply exit the country to a neighbouring region, get your passport stamped there and then enter Thailand again. Citizens from regions in Africa and the middle east will probably have to apply for a visa before landing in Thailand.

Digital Nomads and Remote Work

Perpetuating the island lifestyle is a dream come true, and it is possible if you earn an income in dollars. Due to the exchange rate, which is over 30 baht to the US dollar, you can easily live on a few hundred dollars a month. Food is cheap and accommodation isn't expensive if you stay away from the resorts. Many people try and do just that. You can live well if you have an online source of work.

Alternatively, teaching English is in high demand with schools. companies and universities. Foreigners, especially native English speakers, get compensated well if they choose to go down this path - even more so if you have a qualification in the subject. This is probably the easiest way to get a working visa.

Internet and Mobile Operators

There are three main internet service providers in Thailand. The islands are sometimes the most difficult places to get signal. Thus, you need to choose your company wisely. If you choose from these 3 companies, you will be okay. Besides that, the data plans and airtime costs are really low. Avoid data roaming, as this chows your money quickly.

Best cellular service providers:

  • Dtac
  • AIS
  • True Move

The best place to get a sim card is at the airport when you land. Otherwise you can get one at the 7/11, most drug stores and little cell phone shops throughout the island.

Gambling and Casinos

Gambling is illegal. Those that partake in gambling - apart from the national lotto - are liable for fines or imprisonment depending on the severity of their actions. The locals often partake in simple card games now and then. These go under the radar and you can't really participate as a tourist. Casinos are underground and are only for the wealthy from the area and a few tourists. Never get involved in these, as they are often related to organized crime and unsavoury characters. As a tourist, you need to stay well within the confines of the law. Thai people have a predisposed aversion to foreigners and blame them for a lot; don't give them an excuse to get at you.

Weed and Drugs

Drugs are not something you want to play around with in Thailand. The laws are harsh and doubly so for foreigners. As the country has struggled with smuggling and the devastating consequences of western drug lords looking to make themselves rich, there has been a build up of frustration by many of the governmental authorities. Thus, excessive volumes of possession may even be punishable by death - this is rare but plausible. The likely outcome is that you will be sent to a Thai prison, which is not much better than death. Each year, more tourists than you may think end up here because of stupid decisions. Nobody knows where they end up and those that return tell horror stories.

If you are still keen on getting drugs, you can get the usual stuff. Weed, party drugs like ecstasy and harsher stuff such as meth and heroine are usually sold by Nigerians in the tourist hub spots. Look out for thee guys. They often wait just out of sight, but they can also be scam artists. If you plan on visiting Thailand, the best bet is to forget about drugs for the duration of your stay.

Health, Fitness, Gyms and Massage

There aren't many health clubs across the city. Most of the hotels will have gyms, but there aren't many commercial gyms as you would find in the west. However, there are loads of martial arts studios across the region, as Muay Thai is the main sport. You can attend one of the gyms for classes; they are fun and offer discounts for first timers. Alternatively, it's best to stick to the hotels if you want a decent workout.

Massages are available. Thai massages are amongst the best in the world, so if you find a reputable spa, it may be well worth the money. Now there are spas and there are "spas". Many of the spas you come across are fronts for prostitution. These girls will entice you on the street with an offer for a massage, but they are really offering a different service. You can identify them, as they invite men in.

Some will reject the idea, but others ay want to try it. Be careful! There are a few ladyboys mixed in with eth girls, so if you sign up, make sure the girl is female unless you want a surprise later on. Also, do not have sex with these girls. The hygiene of these places is appalling, and some do not clean up after previous clients - sometimes not even a mouthwash. It is the perfect place to get an STD, so it's probably best to stay clear altogether.

STDs and HIV

Thailand has a dangerously high rate of STD infections each year. This is further worsened by the harsh environments and poor sanitary conditions amongst most of the working class, which makes up 90% of the population. Over 1% of the total population has HIV, so you need to be extremely careful. Amongst those that are most likely to have the virus, prostitutes and ladyboys are the most at risk parties.

Besides the obvious risks of contracting an STD such as Herpes, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, syphilis, etc, there are also other types of STDs unknown to western medicine. If you contract one of these diseases or infections, you may struggle with it for years to come.

Always be sure to use a condom. Some of the girls may try and convince you to have unprotected sex because they want to get pregnant. Do not fall for this scam; it is just another way to get money from a tourist. To these people, a few hundred dollars every month is a fortune. Also, there is an added risk of catching an STD - not something you want to toy with if you are in a nation where the doctors don't understand English.

If you suspect that you may have contracted an STD, you should head straight for the closest clinic. They will have the necessary ARV and treatments should you need them. You can also get the morning after pill at all pharmacies, and you should not have t look to far to find one.

Stay Safe

Tap water is generally not potable. Liquids from sealed bottles nearly always are, and should be used wherever possible. Restaurants buy ice made from purified water, so don’t worry about ice. Tap water in most hotels should not be used for drinking or brushing teeth unless explicitly labelled as safe.

Motorbikes are somewhat risky, but Jeeps, trucks, and other cars for rent are readily available at very reasonable rates, and are considerably safer.
