A French chef who had just arrived on Koh Samui to open a restaurant was pronounced dead at the scene of a motorcycle accident this morning.
He died instantly from head trauma still on his vehicle.
Friends on the scene said that he had arrived in Samui only recently to open a French restaurant with a relative who has a Thai wife.
They said he liked to drink alcohol and had probably been drinking before the accident. This was coupled with the fact that he was not wearing a helmet and was unfamiliar with the road.
Police reported the incident and have informed the embassy.
