Most popular holiday deals in Ko Samui
Ko Samui holidays begin on an island 700km south of Bangkok on a tropical island in the Gulf of Thailand. With both popular (Chaweng and Lamui) beaches and more secluded ones (Choeng Mon and Nathon), an island adventure here is sure to please. Ko Samui is the third largest island in Thailand with little connection to the mainland. Ko Samui is an oasis of nature with towering coconut trees, eggshell white sandy beaches, cascading waterfalls and glass-like ocean water.
Temperatures are consistently tropical on Ko Samui holidays and travel is recommended during the warmer period between December and March. From April to December, while the rest of the country is in monsoon season, Ko Samui stays relatively dry, making this another good time to holiday. The TIme Zone of the island is UTC (+07:00). Arrival to a Ko Samui holiday can take place through the local airport, which has hourly departures to Bangkok. Arriving by boat and ferry is also easy and is organized from Surat Thani airport. Getting around the island is straightforward by taxi, bus, motorbike, bicycle, or car. You can also rent your own scooter.
Highlights and Attractions
Whether you're looking for a last-minute holiday, a holiday with kids, or just a sunny destination, Ko Samui holidays have a touch of paradise for everyone. While most people come for the famous, sandy Chaweng beach, many return to explore the Namtok Lin Hat waterfall, scuba dive and snorkel from Bophut beach and visit the island's popular and calming temple Wat Khutnaram. Sampling inexpensive, delicately prepared southern Thai food on Bophut beach, which has its roots in Malay and Indonesian culture, is a highlight of Ko Samui holidays. An abundance of Australian, British and Thai bars dot the island, while all-inclusive resorts are becoming more commonplace. With over 60,000 hotel beds available, there are plenty of options on this little slice of tropical paradise.
