What to do in Koh Samui
Koh Samui is Thailand’s third largest island and is also a popular island destination like Phuket. It’s chockfull of natural gems, from white sandy beaches to scenic waterfalls and exotic marine life. The crystal clear waters alone will give you a relaxing vibe, so you’ll love it here if you want to experience a tropical paradise.
Apply some sunblock and wear your sunnies before heading to Lamai and Chaweng beaches. Give in to your tropical state of mind and sway with the coconut trees dancing with the wind.
Once you’re refreshed, stop by Koh Samui’s top attractions like the iconic Bhuddist temples Wat Khunaram Ko Samui and Wat Phra Yai. You can’t resist getting your picture taken with Wat Phra Yai’s shimmering 15-metre tall Buddha statue.
There are plenty of other beautiful sites you should check out like the Secret Buddha Garden and the 48,000-square meter Elephant Camp. You can even interact with these charming gentle giants and ride on their backs as you explore the area.
But if you want to spend your Baht shopping instead, Koh Samui is heaven for bargain hunters. The city has hundreds and hundreds of stores selling anything, from beach wear to cosmetics to carved souvenirs. If you’re one of those people who keep saying, “The night is still young” go shop at the Lamai Night Plaza. And if you’re starting to crave Thai food, the Fisherman’s Village and Maenam Walking Streets are full of pubs, hawker stalls, and places to eat.
Besides the colourful Songkran or Thai New Year, you’ll experience Koh Samui like the locals when you attend the magical Loy Krathong or the Festival of Light in November. They light up candles and lanterns during the full moon, and you’ll feel like you’re standing among the stars in the sky.
