Koh Samui

From Europe to Latin America, fromAustralia to the USA, very many people now recognise the name of Koh Samui. And for good reason. This beautiful tropical island has beencharming its visitors ever since the first tourists arrived in 1971. Thosewho experience Samui are rewarded with an idyllic tropical retreat withlittle traffic, white-sand beaches, a sapphire-blue sea, an abundance oftantalising Thai cuisine and an unusually warm and friendly people.

From a bungalow resort on the beach, to luxury Koh Samui hotels the island has got places to stay for all budgets. Confirn your hotel booking with our online reservations system.

Samui is just 21 kilometres at itswidest point and 25 at its longest. Its hinterland consists of forestshills of limestone and granite, and the shoreline is made up of countlesspalm-fringed beaches and bays.

The best (and most developed) of Samui's beaches are at Chaweng and Lamai on the east coast, where you can now find a very widerange of accommodation, and both restaurants and nightspots to suit everytaste. Bophut and Maenam, on the calmer north coast facing Koh Phangan,are also popular beaches offering a quieter, gentler holiday experience.

Samui's natural attractions include thecoral beds at Laem Sed and Tong Takien, the Hin Lat and Na Muangwaterfalls and the phallic rock formations at the southern end of Lamaibay - to identify just a handful.

And beyond the main island are manyothers well worth exploring - Koh Phangan (world famous for its monthlyFull Moon Parties), Koh Tao (one of the best diving locations in Thailand)and Ang Thong National Marine Park (a compact archipelago of small andvirtually untouched islands which are best explored by sea kayak).

There is a huge range of places to see andthings to do on Samui and its neighbouring islands, and we hope that Samui Guide will give you plenty of ideas to make the most of your holiday.

Inside, you will find guides to the island's best restaurants, spas, shopping facilities, natural and man-made attractions - if nothing else, we hope to get across the huge variety of experiences available here to people of all ages, tastes and budgets.

However you get here, it's likely that yourfirst sight of Samui will be unforgettable - either traditional villagesnestled in palm-fringed beaches or else Samui's beautiful and justly famous tropical airport.

At any event, you can be sure that from the moment you land, the beauty and relaxed atmosphere of this island will begin to catch you in its spell.
