INTERCONTINENTAL KOH SAMUI OFFERS RM 850 ROOM NIGHT!

KEE@FSWMAG.COM

IN THE FUN ISLAND OF KOH SAMUI THAILAND, THERE ARE PLENTY OF PLACES TO CALL HOME AND REST YOUR WEARY HEAD. 

PRICES START FROM RM 50 TO RM 500 TO RM 2,500 PER NIGHT SO TAKE YOUR PICK. ME, I TAKE INTERCONTINENTAL.

ITS FULL NAME IS INTERCONTINENTAL SAMUI BAAN TALING NGAM BUT WITH A MOUTHFUL LIKE THAT, NO WONDER EVERY HOTEL GUEST SIMPLY SAYS 'INTERCON'!

Thai names are near impossible to pronounce in one breath and i always wonder how they can remember the spelling. This explains why Thais have simple nick names like 'Noi', "Mee' or 'Pra'! Imagine saying "I stay at Intercontinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam" to a friend who will just think you are still suffering from a sun stroke on Intercon's private beach.

Now that their special price is only RM 850 per night for 2 persons, the deal is sweeter than ever!
