This is a drive through tour of Lamai Beach, a popular tourist destination located on the tropical island of Koh Samui (Ko Samui, Samui) in Thailand. This tour of Lamai Beach is filmed in a POV (point of view) perspective from the back of a Songthaew taxi, which is the local “public transport” on the island of Koh Samui. This footage is filmed in 4K with a Panasonic HC-VX870 camcorder. The journey begins on the main Koh Samui Ring Road where we have just turned onto the Lamai Beach Road, we then proceed to drive all the way through Lamai passing various hotels, restaurants and bars including one of Lamai´s top attractions the Water Park Called, “Coco Splash Adventure & Waterpark”. The journey ends when we once again meet up with the Koh Samui Main Ring Road where you can turn left to visit Koh Samui´s top attractions “Grandmother and Grandfather Rocks” (Hin Yai & Hin Ta), or turn right to drive to one of Koh Samui´s most popular and oldest beach resorts, “Chaweng Beach”.
WikiTravel writes about Lamai Beach, “The southern third of the beach has the widest strip of sand, is the best for swimming, and has the most nearby eating and drinking and shopping options. To the north, the water doesn’t get deep enough for swimming until you’re quite some distance out, and the further north you go, the narrower and quieter the beach becomes, eventually becoming rocky towards the headland…”.
Wiki writes about Koh Samui, “Ko Samui (or Koh Samui, Thai: เกาะสมุย, Thai pronunciation: [kɔ̀ sàmūj]) is an island off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus, Thailand. Geographically in the Chumphon Archipelago, it is administratively part of Surat Thani Province.

Wiki writes about the Songthaew “taxi”, “A songthaew (Malay: dua baris; Thai สองแถว, literally “two rows”; Lao: ສອງແຖວ [sɔ̌ːŋtʰíw]) is a passenger vehicle in Thailand and Laos adapted from a pick-up or a larger truck and used as a share taxi or bus…”
