"Ministry of Health of Thailand" strongly warns...

Usually, when it comes to smoking limitation, some would argue that it violates our rights, infringe on personal liberty, my health therefore I do what I want. But we tend to forget one simple rule, "the freedom of one ends where the freedom of another begins." And if anyone has the right to breathe harmful smoke, the same way someone else has the right to breathe clean air. Actually, in many respects - clean air is the reason why most of the people go to Samui. >>

About eggs

 
About eggs

Once, in a conversation with a Thai girl I was surprised to learn that during a day Thais manage to eat an average of 6 meals including eggs in one form or another, as a readily available product. It turns out to be an average of 20 egs per week! And, of course, to make it tasty and not so boring they cook egs in all the different variations, boiled, fried, baked, raw, soar, steamed, pickled... >>

Durian

 
Durian

Durian (in Thai "turien") is considered to be the "king of fruits" of Southeast Asia.Its name apparently derives from the Malay word "duri", which means "thorn." Indeed, the fruit is covered with a tough skin with very sharp thorns covering the entire surface (in some cases, you wont be able to pick it up without gloves).The birthplace of this exotic fruit is believed to be the island of Borneo and Sumatra (in other words - Malaysia and Indonesia). Some time later durian appeared in other countries in the region: Thailand, India, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Vietnam, New Guinea. >>

How much is it?

 
How much is it?

Most of the tourists coming to Thailand for the first time,would think that they should always bargain everywhere and split the price at least in half.Looking at the price tags, all these people make a simple calculation - divide it in half and think they know the real value for this or that item. Therefore the first impression: "Oh, everything is so cheap!"However, this is not quite so. >>

Pineapples

 
Pineapples

In my distant childhood pineapples were sold only in packages, peeled and cut into small pieces. They were sold in stores "vegetables and fruits", which always smelled of rotten potatoes, sour cabbage and was always dirty. Pineapples were then brought from Australia (or New Zealand) and sold exclusively frozen. In times of the big holidays parents used to bring home a coveted bag with a pineapple and it was instantly eaten. Because of this, in my mind, a pineapple has always been something spicy-sweet with ice crystals, available only on holiday. Now I live where pineapples are three times cheaper than potatoes and sold on every street corner. >>

This holiday is known perhaps more than any other outside of Thailand. Tourists from all over the world come to Thailand during this period to take part in officially authorized street madness where people are dousing each other with water and put powder on each other faces. For example, in 2013 during the Songkran there were more than 2 million tourists officially registered in Thailand. >>

If you move a little further away from the bustling Chaweng Road and it might even be a better idea to rent a house in a quiet area of Koh Samui, somewhere on Maenam, Taling Ngam, Bang Por ... where besides annoying invitations to visit Muay Thai fights you can actualy hear the true sounds of nature. >>
