Great pictures skinny Dave. Wish I visited Samui in the 80's when the beaches were cleaner and the locals less commercialised.
Love the old photo's mate, keep them coming.
Cheers Ken F
More "skinny Dave's" to come...ho ho ho.
It is a Very Different Place now and the Locals More So!!! None of it for the Better either!!!
Here are some pics of Samui, again in the early 1980s, 81-83. I believe the first is from the dock in Surat Thani
The view from the bungalows at Sun East
Today, the view below would be looking at the Anatara Lawana Resort.
And of course the Saturday afternoon entertainment between watching bouts of Muay Thai on TV. Saturdays were the only days on Chaweng that the electricty came on during the day for the purpose of allowing the locals to watch and gamble on the televised matches.

The road around the island still being built.
Downtown Ang Thong city...the sleepy hollow
You would never recognize anything now let alone find Your way around! Central Festival, Lotus, Burger King, McDonalds etc etc. Just another City stuck on an Island! Love the Chaweng Beach Photo. Incredible, So Untouched!
