Koh Samui

The fabulous beaches of Koh Samui have been attracting visitors for decades. The island – the third largest in Thailand – is now firmly on the international tourist map. Covering 247 sq km, the island lies 35km off the coast of Surat Thani. Koh Samui’s central region, comprising almost two-thirds of the island, consists of thickly wooded mountainous terrain, with coconut palms interspersed by gushing streams and waterfalls.

Finding somewhere to stay on the island couldn’t be easier and you don’t have to look far to find luxury hotels, boutique resorts, villas and natural spas. Budget accommodatrion has now been relegated to sleazy back-streets, so don't visit unless you can afford a good hotel. There’s all manner of major retail chains and fast food outlets nestled under a blaze of neon signs. Thankfully, that’s not the case all around the island. In a nutshell, these changes have transformed Koh Samui from what was once a ‘backpacker haven’ to a ‘family friendly’ resort island.

Diving around Koh Samui

There are several reasonable dives to be had around Koh Samui itself, all but one of which are reached by 10-90 minutes boat trips. However, the best sites are further north, requiring boat trips. More experienced divers can enjoy exciting and exhilarating deep wall-dives; divers of all levels can enjoy a variety of fringing reefs.
