Samui Travelers, Tell Me it is Safer Than What I'm Reading : (

Jump to last reply

Now I'm freaking out about this trip. I have read about cobras, leeches, poisonous centipedes, scorpions and to my shock, box jelly fish. Not to mention the malaria and dengue fever. Bugs in the rooms, snakes in the rooms, ants in the room, rabid dogs and biting monkeys. Seriously? I have two kids going and we're going in July (rain) when all these bugs are at the worst. I bought tickets I can't cancel. I'm feeling very stupid and trapped now about this trip. Chiang Mai is booked but we might die of leeches or dengue fever. The intent was to go to Elephant Nature Camp but that is in the jungle naturally.

Clearly, we are a family that doesn't do well with bugs or spiders the size of dinner plates. My husband will have a heart attack.

Have been weighing Krabi over Samui since perhaps fewer poisonous stuff is there but it's not clear. Samui has the better weather but Amari Vogue has sewage smells in the rainy season as well as being isolated and the Centara is full of complaints about being worn with awful service. I don't know what to do or where to put us. So many villa/bungalow properties near chaweng but if we go out, we're isolated and need to dine only where we stay.

What is your feeling or experience on the snakes and spiders and centipedes? Given we can't deal well with the above, is our best bet Chaweng or Ao nang Krabi where we can walk to dine and further away from the jungle?

Sigh...thanks for all the help so far. It's the jungle...I know.
