Koh Samui was once a destination known only to the more intrepid backpackers, however the last few decades have seen this paradise island become a top tourist destination, and it is not surprising when you consider what this little island has to offer. The stretches of golden beach are widely acknowledged to be some of the best in the world, coupled with its enigmatic coves and magical seascapes, it is a truly magnificent natural location.
The island looks very different to twenty or thirty years ago; it now offers holiday delights for everyone, including playing host to a huge range of luxurious accommodations, world-class restaurants, shopping, markets, bars, wild parties and all kinds of sport facilities, but of course, everything is still encompassed within its jaw-dropping scenery.
Koh Samui’ s massive growth in tourism has led to it becoming one of the top destinations in the world, and yet it has managed to retain its richness in culture; its vast natural beauty and traditional Thai hospitality are untainted by this incredible development. It offers a tantalising mix of authentic experiences and high-end luxurious amenities. You will truly find something for everyone on this island; whether you’re a relaxer reading a good book whilst soaking up some rays, a culinary connoisseur sipping sun-downer cocktails on the beach, an indulgent holiday-goer getting pampered in a five star spa, or a culture vulture visiting Samui’s ancient shrines.
We have compiled some suggestions for your trip to Samui, but of course there is so much more to do than we could possibly detail, so you’ll have to come and check it out for yourself!
