Water and ice cubes

We do not advise you to drink tap water, though it is safe use it to brush teeth or for shower for example. You will find everywhere in the shops, very cheap bottled drinking water. Cylindrical shaped ice is safe, it is made from drinking water, on the other hand, pounded ice is not recommended.

Samui hospitals

There are several good hospitalson the island. Bangkok Samui Hospital and Thai International Hospital - both are located in Chaweng (on the Samui Ring Road) - are the best outfitted but the most expensive. Their staff speak English (among other main foreign languages) and it is possible to be refunded from some european and american insurance companies in case of hospitalization. The other one is located in Chaweng North, on the beach road, its name is Samui International Hospital, good health service also and the staff speaks several foreign languages.
