Samui Phangan Magazine December January 2019

Tropical Musings from Paradise
As joyous as the year-end can be, I’m sure we’re all feeling the strain of finishing up projects, closing out budgets,and trying to build a strong foundation to kick-off 2019 with. But whether you’re here on a well-deserved break or part of the large Expat community on Samui or Phangan you have certainly picked one of the best places in the world to celebrate Christmas and see arrival of the New Year 2019. Our Islands have everything to offer from a quiet Christmas with drinks on secluded sunny beach to a full blown 5-star experience at one of our fantastic hotels or restaurants. Personally, I will be celebrating Christmas at home and cooking myself. After visiting Jeff Egberts from Merchant Gourmet Samui I’ve now more choice than I expected for some of his delicious options and I’m enjoying putting together our Xmas Menu.

Our Christmas Edition Dec / Jan 2019 is always our biggest magazine of the year and being Edition Number 83 something to be very proud of. Not many magazines can boast almost 14 years of successful publishing. This edition is no different and we welcome KASA Developments, Cocoon by HK, Asia Luxury Properties, Zen Dacha Villa, Bangkok First Aid Training and Villa Velks to our publication. The amazing front & back cover image is kindly from IVL Property, Anamaya Samui, this is the actual view from the site, just incredible.

But in the midst of ‘wrapping’ everything up (pun 100% intended) and transitioning into some well-deserved time off, we at Satayu Publishing would like to say thanks for all your support over the year and wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. But with all your celebrations and parties please be careful on the roads and do not drive under the influence.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
