• About Ko Samui, Thailand

Lush with tropical forest, fringed with palm trees lined stretches of golden sand, surrounded by pellucid, aquamarine water, Ko Samui is Thailand’s second most popular island destination. Located in the Gulf of Thailand, it is about 700 km south of Bangkok and 80 km from Thailand’s southern coast.   The third largest island in Thailand, it is the largest in an archipelago of more than 80 islands that includes the Ang Thong National Marine Park, a kayaking paradise and a day trip from Ko Samui.

Small enough to be circumnavigated in half a day on motorbike or by car, this island gem nevertheless features such a variety of beaches and activities that it would be impossible to experience everything in a single day. The beaches of Chaweng, Lamai, Taling Ngam and Natien are bustling beach towns with fabulous resorts, internationally acclaimed restaurants, and world-class entertainment. Activities around Ko Samui include yoga instruction, Muay Thai training, scuba diving, golf and even cooking courses. While there are a few quieter beaches that are ideal for relaxation, particularly those that feature some of the finest five-star resorts in the world, and some that exude old world charm – such as Bo Phut which features converted, old Chinese shop houses – Ko Samui is a lively, exciting place that has developed its own style of island paradise while retaining much of its natural beauty

Samui International Airport, one of the world’s most beautiful and best designed in tune with its gorgeous natural surroundings, is served by regular flights from Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong as well as a number of cities in China.
