Ben & Partners’ Firm Trip – Koh Samui


“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Though a much quoted saying, not many realize the sense in living by it. For us at Ben & Partners, we do think it is important to have a well-lived balanced life.

As such, at the end of 2013 and in the midst of our busy working lives, we managed to squeeze in a trip to Koh Samui, Thailand to catch a breather. During the day time, we busied ourselves in team-building activities. On some nights, we indulged in the loud and entertaining nightlife that Soi Green Mango, Koh Samui’s busiest nightlife street, has to offer. On other nights, we pampered ourselves with therapeutic massages after strolling along the whole stretch of Chaweng Beach Road.

Probably the highlight – most of us would agree – of the trip was the authentic Thai meals that we had throughout the trip. We happily indulged ourselves in pad thais, curry crabs and tom yam goong which were tasty and inexpensive. Bonding over good company, breathtaking sceneries and mouth-pleasuring Thai food, we had an amazing time in Koh Samui!
