Maybe OzeThai can tell us some more about Phuket and Koh Samui.

Maybe Koh is the right word for island and Amphoe something else.
I haven\'t learned Thai.

If Koh is the island, then Amphoe must be the city.
I hope OzeThai can tell us more.

Now we got it --- Amphoe Muang (อำเภอเมือง) is the urban area.

For this reason, I would call \"Amphoe Ko Samui\" 苏梅岛市.
