Digital nomads looking for perfect destinations to work and travel often make their choice between the best Thai islands and Koh Samui is among the most demanded places. Gone are the days when Koh Samui was just a small fishing community framed by white sandy beaches, coral reefs and palm trees. Today it’s one of the best vocation destinations for travelers all over the world. Despite the locals here you can see a cosmopolitan mix of independent budget travelers that prefer staying there for a couple of months. Some even buy homes and condos and live for years. Many celebrities have their private villas on this luxurious island. However, we are here to discover Koh Samui for independent travelers including nomads. Let’s go!
So, even if you are not working online just keep reading, as it’s really useful to know about nice cafés to sip a coffee and upload your holiday pictures with a good wi-fi connection in Thailand’s best island.
When and Why
One of the most frequently asked questions about Koh Samui is why and when should you visit there. Of course Thailand is a tropical country and it’s sunny almost all year round but there are rainy months of winter that you may avoid if you want to enjoy the sun, the soft and shiny sand along with the stunning water of the sea. Thus, the driest months are from December to February where prices tend to peak. If you come after February, you may find lower prices. March and April are still amazing months to choose for this destination but the perfect choice is of course summer. It goes without saying that September tends to be warm yet very subtle at the same time. All in all you can travel to Koh Samui whenever you want depending on your interests, nomad lifestyle and preferences.
Cafés and Restaurants
As for cafés and restaurants to chill out or work most of them have wi-fi connection with some exceptions. Actually the speed of the internet connection is very fast and the only reason why it can lose its power may be the bad weather. The following cafés are perhaps the best for nomads; Coffee Club in Chaweng, June Art Café in Bohput and Nathon, Coffee Cup in Bang Rak, Black Canyon Coffee and Sunset Café in Bang Rak.
