Koh Samui is an idyllic holiday island in the Gulf of Thailand. It has long attracted visitors to its sandy shores due to its many attractions and is voted as the 2nd best island in the world to live.
From exploring the exotic Buddhist temples and the golden Big Budda statue, to elephant trekking in the jungle, haggling for goods at the local markets, getting your adrenalin pumping with water sports, marveling at the waterfalls, letting the relaxing effects of a Thai massage sooth you or simply chilling out on the beach, Koh Samui has it all.
It has recently benefited from increased facilities such as a shopping centre with superstore, shops, restaurants and a cinema, while still retaining its unique island charm.
In addition to this, the scuba diving islands of Koh Phangan and Koh Tao are only a short boat ride away and this magical island can be easily reached by direct flights from Bangkok, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong.
