Overview of Koh Samui Island
Take an hour's flight from Bangkok and you can find yourself in a different world. Koh Samui is an idyllic island of swaying palm trees, gentle tropical breezes, soft sands and smiles - everywhere!
Unlike other holiday destinations in the area, there is no long rainy season and this, combined with a temperature range of just a few degrees - approximately 24-30° - makes for a perfect tropical retreat.
Things to Do in Koh Samui
Whatever your plans, the beaches across Koh Samui vary wildly, from the party atmosphere at Chaweng to the peaceful Mae Nam - ideal for snoozing under a coconut tree.
If you’re keen on exciting activities and adventures, you can try snorkelling, hiking and waterfall swimming on this stunning island.
In the evenings, there are countless restaurants and bars to choose from. Local cuisine is a huge part of the Koh Samui experience and a trip to Bophut’s fisherman’s village is a must for any visitor. Here you’ll find a rustic marketplace packed with boutique stores and exciting restaurants serving mouth-watering, traditional dishes.
Koh Samui is also home to the famous Big Buddha shrine, one of Thailand’s most famous landmarks. This is a great place for getting a taste of the history of the area and for buying quirky souvenirs for family and friends.
