#Robert De Wet on May 10, 2018 :
Koh Samui is unique:
1. It is not a town - it is an island with ribbon development along the coast, thus there is no 'downtown' area.
2. There is no public transport.
3. Taxis are a national scandal and have the highest rates in the world.
4. Except for gasoline, everything has increased by 100% in the last 12 years, across the board.
5. Electricity is usually metered by the house owner then passed to the tenant at an inflated rate.
6. Two top quality international hospitals - but VERY expensive and relying on foreigners having medical insurance.
7. Samui is now probably the most expensive place anywhere in Thailand.

Overall, the average rates shown here are incorrect and need to be adjusted upwards
#RH on Feb 27, 2018 :
The prices listed here are much lower than reality, even if shopping at Makro.
#Ken on Aug 09, 2016 :
We are thinking about retiring on Koh Samui. Can anyone tell me what is the availability of health care? Cost? Quality?
#LeeAnne on Jun 03, 2016 :
My husband and I are looking to come to Thailand for me to teach. Is is possible that he can find work as a diesel fitter / mechanic while I fulfill my teaching contract?
Thank you
