Although the days of just being a haunt of hippies and backpackers are long gone, Samui continues to offer many opportunities for budget travellers with more reasonably priced beach accommodation than Phuket.

If you are travelling on a budget, you can get by fairly easily on around B600 a day. Visitors staying in more comfortable accommodation and eating at restaurants should expect to spend around B1,500 a day. If money is no object, then you can spend to your heart's delight. Though there are a number of luxury resorts on the island, your spending levels will be curtailed if you get off the beaten track.
