Koh Samui is Thailand’s second largest island known for its stunning palm tree edged beaches, crystal clear water, and dense mountainous rainforest, plus luxury resorts and posh spas. With its broad appeal and attractions, Samui has been a popular destination for all types of visitors from the budget backpacker to the wealthy celebrities.
In Koh Samui, there are many beach towns but the 3 main ones are, the hustle and bustle ‘Chaweng’, the lively yet relaxed atmosphere of Lamai, and Bophut’s Fisherman’s Village. In Bophut you will be able to find a unique blend of local fishermen with many modern beachside bars and restaurants where you can enjoy refreshing drinks while watching the sunset.
The destination itself is surely known for its beautiful beaches but it’s also packed with many activities to do and things to explore, from visiting natural attractions, experiencing local food and cultures, trying out different kinds of water sports, to a fun night out. Afterall, there aren’t that many places where you can see cabaret shows and enjoy the serenity of Buddhist temples and white sand beaches – Samui definitely has it all!
