Koh Samui travel pictures

The tropical island Koh Samui

Koh Samui is one of the most popular islands in Thailand. It has beautiful beaches which are plentiful and has many developed resorts. The two main beaches are Chaiweng and Lamai. Both have a long stretch of white sand with on one side the clear sea and on the other side palm trees. Along most of the beach there are numerous resorts with restaurants and pools. Despite the popularity of these beaches, they are not excessively crowded.

Another beach which is stunningly attractive is that of Bophut. It is located on the north of Koh Samui and is amazingly quiet, though not deserted. The views from there are stunning as you can see Koh Phangan. Enjoying the sun and relaxing on the beach is the main activity here, but there are also many restaurants, bars and a few nightclubs.

The most common way of getting around Koh Samui is by taxi. The motor-taxi's are definitely a lot more open to haggling. Alternatively you can rent a scooter and drive around the island. There is a ferry that connects you to mainland Thailand and to the other islands Koh Phangan and Koh Tao making it easy to hop from one island to another.

To experience some time on the Gulf of Thailand you could go on a day trip to the nearby Ang Thong national marine park. Koh Samui is one of the most beautiful islands in Asia and offers the real tropical experience in a comfortable way.
