Well here's a lovely thought for anybody wondering the way to spend some time on Koh Samui. I just thought today I would spend an afternoon at the little coffee bar and restaurant named Bakubung. Nothing at all really exceptional in this you might say, until I explain to you that it is one of the best kept secrets on Koh Samui. It is located on the beach, near to the Bop hut Fisherman's village. This is certainly a heavenly place to come and rest and drink a coffee or 2. Exactly what could be a superior way of sitting.
A beach front position with an amazing landscape
Golden fine sand stretches across the front, with magical views of Koh Phangan after which cast your eyes in the distance towards the glistening sea after which towards various speed boats and yachts bobbing down and up in front of the coastline along Fisherman Village beach frontage. What more might you request of a view, simply idyllic.
Alluring Coffee lounge and Bar
You'll be met when you arrive by the owner or equally warm and friendly staff whom is happy that you should go get your seats and wait to allow them to provide your chosen coffee, shake or other cool drink. Take this with a piece of fresh chocolate cake for 70 Baht a piece, coffee at 75 Baht for a gargantuan cup. Among the finest tasting lattes on Koh Samui I am sure.
You have the choice of sitting down on the covered patio or indoors on comfy dark leather settees and chairs. My choice is generally to sit at one of the tables outside and stare out at the views. What more could you request, except they provide free of charge WIFI and that's why I'm able to compose this short article. Starbuck eat your heart out, this location wins every time.
Be sure you recognize that the quietness is only interrupted by way of mellow audio, of the most appealing kind. I'm constantly flattered after i visit Bakubung as it's often, pretty much by no means really busy. This isn't an issue for its proprietors, as they eventually have other plans and like most Thai people are happy to experience a laid-back business and make some friends. The lady that owns this business is definitely most enchanting and welcoming.
And then I need to inform you of that if you'd prefer, there is a swinging hammock in the grounds, a sizable grassed area and magnificently positioned Sala with grassed roof structure. Plenty of breathing space here and it makes the perfect location for a enjoyable day. If you appreciate to read the paper, then this is a wonderful place.

Don't be prepared to see so many tourists here. Ok it's on the beach, but just far enough away that many people miss it. If you're starting at Fisherman's village, Bop hut then you really should stroll along the seashore towards the Bangrak area and you ought to easily find it, because it has a long frontage. What is excellent is that there are plenty of Thai's that come here with their buddies, not so many Xpats and a good mixture of classy people.
