Koh Samui is a beautiful tropical island situated off the South East coast of Thailand; it has been welcoming visitors to its charm and wealth of idyllic sandy beaches since 1971.
Just 25 kilometres long by 21 kilometres wide it is renowned for its warm Thai welcome, its’ fantastic Thai cuisine matched by a diverse range of cuisine from around the world and a wealth of activities from diving and snorkelling to exploring the jungle and taking in the breathtaking views from the mountains of the interior.
Samui is surrounded by the clear waters of the South China Sea and offshore there are numerous coral reefs to explore. Some of the best reefs are to be found on the surrounding islands and within the nearby marine park of Ang Thong, a short boat trip away. The nearby island of Koh Tao provides some of the best diving in the region.
For the more actively minded there are many activities available; golf on the new international course; elephant trekking, ATV and Go-karting; water-sports; and zip wiring across the jungle canopies to name but a few. After a hard day's play you can relax in one of the numerous Spa's and retreats with a local therapeutic massage.
The main tourist centres are Chaeweng and Lamai, where nightlife, entertainment and restaurants can be found in abundance, for those who choose tranquillity the northern coast provides a more quite family atmosphere. However, the size of the island means that no-where is that far away.
Koh Samui has a wealth of local culture, although tourism is an important revenue earner, the more traditional side of Samui is alive and well if you dig beneath the surface. Around the island you will find many Wats (temples), the largest of these, Big Buddah is near the airport, its centre piece is a huge golden statue of a seated Buddah.
Ban Nathorn, on the West coast is the administrative centre of Koh Samui and where the ferry from the mainland arrives. It is well worth a visit to see the local markets and get a flavour of the real Samui, away from the tourist centres.
There are numerous festivals on the island throughout the year, where you will see the local community celebrating through food fairs, temple activities, live music and other cultural performances. The most notable of these are Chinese New Year (February), Songkhran (Thai New Year – April 13th to 15th) and Loi Krathong (November).
