Samui is a tropical paradise island in the Gulf of Thailand.  It is in Surat Thani province, about  650 kms. from Bangkok to the south.  This island is 75 km from the mainland.  It takes almost 15 hours traveling on the land and sea.   Travel by plane takes much less time and popular among foreign tourist. 

Samui Airport is a privately owned airport by Bangkok Airways, but you can take Thai Airways as well. Construction began in 1982 and was officially opened in April 1989. The airport is located roughly 2 km north of the main village Chaweng. The airport is located near the Big Buddha Pier where ferries to Ko Pha Ngan depart from.  High speed ferries to Koh Tao and Chumphon depart from the Maenam beach pier, located approx 6 km northwest of the airport.  

Samui Airport is an outstanding airport by its open-air terminal.  All the buildings sit among remarkably beautiful gardens.  The airport has 2 terminals (Domestic & International).  Check in is done on the other buildings about hundred meters away.  You have to walk through the outdoor mall or take a ride.  All the buildings have been modeled in detail, so you will fell almost you were there.

Features:

 

  • Ground poly with high resolution texture for all the runway and taxiways including aprons.
  • All the buildings were carefully modeled to simulate the real place including check in buildings, outdoor shopping mall, domestic and international gates, arrival area, clock tower.  Moreover the surrounding garden was model as accurate as possible.  You will fell like you are in the real place.
  • Interior of the open-air gates was modeled too. 
  • Car park including 3d cars that are available in Thailand.  Advertising billboards were modeled.
  • Service vehicles were animated ones. 
  • Surrounding area was model in detail including the nearby Pier to Koh Pha Ngan, the bungalows near by the airports, Big Buddha stature, Wat on the hill near the airport (Wat Koa Hae Jug), etc.
  • The whole island was modified to match the real thing.  Coast line was corrected,  new landclass was done, roads and rivers were drawn.
  • The nearby islands and Surat thani provice were modified to be as real as possible.  Almost a hundred islands were added.
  • Extremely frame rate friendly.
  • Much, much more to discover by yourself.

Installation:
Installation was done very easily by the installer.  Everything will be done automatically.  Some files will be overwritten but a backup are already made.  The scenery itself will be installed in Addon Scenery,
including A_A VTSM 2011 and VTSM landclass.  You need to add both of them to your Scenery library and the VTSM landclass should be lower priority than the A_A VTSM 2011.
 
Download Requirements:
You need to have mesh of Thailand.  You can use freeware from Martin Strong at flightsim.com (thaimsh1.zip, thaimsh2.zip, thaimsh3.zip and thaimsh4.zip) or payware like Fsglobal.  I have mesh for Samui and surrounding islands included but if you’d like to go to anywhere else.  Those files are the must. AI is not included.  You can used default or visit all the freeware websites (avsim, flightsim).

Performance and Computer Spec:
This is a very frame rate friendly scenery.  You can use an old computer like the one that I have: Athlon 1.2 Ghz, Ram 1 G, Radeon 9550 with quite acceptable frame rate around 10-15 at full HD 1366x768  with full AI.

I have to revise my original rating as the problem with the trees was nothing to do with this scenery but was related to a third party addon for the island which I have identified. This scenery is top quality - absolutely superb!

Potentially amazing scenery at a very good price which would have scored 5 stars were it not for the large number of trees which seem to float around in the area of the terminal and which largely obscure the unique terminal structures! I have installed the Thai mesh as recommended but the problem still persists amd I have not found the homepage/forum on Facebook helpful in this regard

RDPRESETS - EHRD ROTTERDAM V2 AIRPORT MSFS
Igor
Excellent product, one of the best for MSFS! Very professional and complex with 0 impact to FPS! Ok, I have to admit that I bought the scenery for error; but when I saw it in MSFS it was a huge surprise! Worth every penny, every cent.
RDPRESETS - EHRD ROTTERDAM V2 AIRPORT XP11
Marek
excellent airport for XP11, great accurate and nice colors!
SIM FEDERATION - EMBRAER PHENOM 300E MSFS
john
Not worth the money. Almost nothing works on the model. Nice looking from the outside and flys ok but it is a msfs flight store special...shoul-
d be priced at $9.00.
CIMOGT - ESSEX-CLASS AIRCRAFT CARRIER FSX P3D
Andreas
The third CIMOGT carrier I purchased. The price is outstanding, the ship is a nice addition because it is a small one and tricky to catch the wire. Textures are quite good and using the hangar deck is a nice incentive to get your "carrier-qualif-
ication". Frame rates are very good. I highly recommend this product.
AC SCENERY - CITY3D ABERDEEN P3D4-5
Andreas
Only a few special objects. Rest is a repetition of textures: One type of boat, one type of shops and so on. The ground textures have no natural colour and are in contrast with ORBX Scotland and Just Flight photo scenery. Product has the quality of a freeware product. Not so bad if your home base is situated in the area otherwise not recommended.

Very realistic and detailed airport. Inclu-
ding the new terminal.
ROLAND LABORIE - VOUGHT CRUSADER F8-E MSFS
Kent
External model is beautiful...my major beef is that this airplane is ridiculously overpowered. So here is my list of things to make this airplane get a 5 out of 5 stars: - Get engine/flight model parameters correct...not even close currently - Add visual AB effect - Make the default be NO external stores - Add a paint kit - Add a an RF-8A or G variant ...a-
nd BOOM! It's a 5/5.
FLYTAMPA - LEGACY - COPENHAGEN FSX P3D3
Ian
Overall another excellent scenery from FlyTampa - great quality textures. A couple of technical issues noted. Unlike their LOWW scenery, the EKCH configuration gives only two options for runway operation. This should probably be based on wind direction on a given day, especially with those of us that use some type of real weather software. Also, I find it quite hard to believe that runway 22R would be used for arrivals with the final approach being made over the apron/gate/term-
inal areas. A more realistic set up would be using 22L for arrivals and 22R for departures.
BRSIMDESIGNS - ERCOUPE 415C MSFS

Went 3 stars because I love the Ercoupe so much I'm still flying this a lot, even though it's got very annoying problems. 1. The external model is absolutely beautiful, canopy may be a little oversized but not bad. Internally it's nice, but the viewing angle of the dash is strange, as if it's pointed toward the co-pilot. 2. rudder pedals, not sure if this is a limitation of the game or if it's even possible to tie in rudder controls with the yoke to match the missing pedals. By the way, in response to another reviewer here, it depends which one you have whether it has pedals or not. The one I've flown does not and all steering is by the yoke. I think ground steering is still the yoke even when one does have pedals, but can't swear by that. 3. Window fixes as mentioned in reviews would be nice, opening animation, partial opening, etc. Likewise custom call signs would be nice. 4. Feels very overpowered, but that can depend on what engine one has in it I suppose. 5. Cowl and even tail shaking with engine vibration is overboard. and 6. This is the big one I'm really here for... as mentioned by others, please fix the floating! This does feel like a glider, even at 40 knots. The Ercoupe I've flown sinks quickly, and does not bounce like mad once you're on the ground. And doesn't want to squirm all around once you're on the runway. Sure, there's no flaps, but the Ercoupe has a ton of drag with the design, wheels out, and double tail. Although it does feel stable, even a bit too much on stalls. You do feel some stall motions irl, although it really is remarkably stable even in that situation. Not trying to be nit picky, I love that BR Sim made this available and am very thankful! Even with my gripes I'm a little obsessed with this mod. If I could have anything fixed it would be that floating/glidin-
g issue for landing.
WINGSIM - MWCR, OWEN ROBERTS INTL AIRPORT P3D4
Ruston
A solid product - certainly a significant step above default scenery or typical freeware. Th-
ere are some issues to note: 1) The photoscenery is low definition. It doesn't look genuinely good until about 5000 ft AGL. Though it makes for a nice initial stage to approach in a passenger jet, maintaining immersion into the lower stages of the approach would require much more in the way of hand-placed 3D buildings and vegetation. Some is included, but not enough to dispel the "flying over a blurry carpet" sense that photoscenery produces at low altitude. 2) The photoscenery has some clouds and "sunken" cruise ships in it. Those familiar with photoscenery know that this is not uncommon with Caribbean locations. 3-
) The lawn surrounding the main terminal flickers noticeably when taxiing or overflying it. 4) Hand-placed trees ended up in the water in several places south of runway 26. In spite of these issues, there are also some nice touches, such as the animated flags and dolphins. The 3D objects are well-crafted for the most part. They took the trouble of creating a night-lighting effect on the photoscenery for evening flying, and the tarmac water and night-lighting effects look quite nice as well. Though I'd probably have felt a bit disappointed had I spent the 17 Euro full price on this purchase, the sale price is very reasonable. I'll be watching to see how this developer progresses, as there is definitely promise here.
