Koh Samui’s white sands and relaxed ambience may have boosted the island’s popularity in recent years, yet much of its sleepy charm and natural beauty remains.
Lively Chaweng is the island’s hub with an impressive beach, vibrant nightlife, great restaurants, along with street markets, boutiques and malls. Further south is Lamai, which while quieter, has dining and shopping aplenty, while on the north coast, Mae Nam and Bophut provide a more serene setting for sun-seekers. Within Bophut you’ll find Fisherman’s Village, where rustic buildings house boutique stores and trendy restaurants.
If you can drag yourself away from the sparkling ocean and silky-soft sands, attractions include the 39 foot high Big Buddha shrine which is the island's most well-known landmark; the two Na Muang Waterfalls, which are incredibly picturesque and have pools at their base to swim in; while hidden away in the hills of Koh Samui's interior is the Secret Buddha Garden. For a rewarding day out, head to the Ang Thong National Marine Park, a pristine archipelago of 42 islands in the Gulf of Thailand where along with amazing scenery and uninhabited beaches you can snorkel and dive.
When it comes to food the island has a huge array of restaurants, cafes, bakeries and local places to eat, so you can be certain that you'll never go hungry! From international favourites to local specialities; from air-conditioned chic restaurants to barefoot beach dining, Samui has all this and more.
Home to just a handful of hotels there’s definitely no need to reserve a sun lounger at first light, and amongst the sheltered bays and frequently deserted beaches, you’ll often see only your own footprints in the sand.
The scenery isn’t too shabby either, with soaring limestone mountains peering over palm-tree lined roads, lush coconut or rubber plantations and stilted wooden houses. Inland, explore stalactite caves, waterfalls and natural exfoliating fish spas in mountain rivers.
The offshore waters are a breeding ground for pink dolphins, a rare albino variety with a striking pink hue. Take a boat trip in the hope of a closer encounter with these elusive creatures.
For a flavour of local life, visit one of the regular markets and browse stalls of exotic foodstuffs, or head for the harbour to see fishermen unload their catch of the day.
After dark, if it’s a party scene you’re after, then you’ll be disappointed. Away from the hotels, you will, however, find a few bars and restaurants, particularly around Nadan Beach.
