A Guide to Koh Samui
is the third largest island of Thailand after Phuket
and Koh Chang
and one of the most popular destinations for travelers.
In recent years it developed to a tropical beach resort but still maintained its charm and has everything to offer - from coconut tree fringed beaches to tropical jungles to a vibrant nightlife.
Popular beaches are Chaweng, Lamai, Bophut & Maenam.
Accommodations range from bungalows and villas to 5 star boutique resorts and are suitable for all budgets. Restaurants of all flavors invite for delicious wining and dining and spas and
massage facilities for rejuvenation. Activities include elephant trekking, canoeing, sailing, diving, golfing, fishing, biking and all you can think of. There is also a lot to see, like waterfalls,
temples and jungles as well as a butterfly garden, an aquarium and tiger zoo, monkey theatre, snake and crocodile farm and a tropical zoo to name some. Day tours to the neighbor islands of Koh Phangan
and the Angthong Marine National Park are well worth to attend. Direct flights to Samui airport
from Bangkok, Singapore and Hongkong as well as ferry services from Suratthani makes Ko Samui easy accessible.
