KohSamui Travel Guide

by our Thailand expert Conrad Freethy
 
Conrad FreethyBlue skies, turquoise seas, long sands and smaller bays fringed with green trees, the beaches of Koh Samui are picture card perfect. Some, such as Chaweng and Lamai beaches on the east coast, are very popular and unlikely to be as sleepy and restful as the postcards suggest, with restaurants, bars, discos and a vibrant nightlife. However Koh Samui does have many other quieter and smaller beaches most with accommodation ranging from beach huts to luxury hotels. Development is confined to the coastline and the interior of the island has some thick tropical forest, hills and waterfalls, good for exploring, and extensive coconut and rubber plantations. Just a boat ride from Koh Samui is Koh Pha Ngan, well known for its sandy beaches with cheap accommodation and full moon parties and a little further is Koh Tao, an island geared heavily towards divers, with excellent clear waters, corals, pinnacles and varied marine life.
