Things to do
By day, go snorkelling amongst shoals of multi-coloured fish in the turquoise waters off the island’s northern shore. Or simply bask on the fine sands, fringed by leaning palms. For true tranquillity, head to the bay at Lipa Noi beach, fringed by coconut plantations. At night, enjoy a moonlit stroll past the colourful fishing boats of Bo Phut.
Go off the beaten track and into the dense jungles of Koh Samui on a 4WD Jeep tour. Take a serene boat tour around the island, enjoying the highlights – like the giant Buddha statue. And make time for a visit to Ang Thong National Marine Park.
FOOD & DRINK
Whether in your boutique hotel restaurant or the beachfront options as you explore, there is much to savour on Koh Samui. Savour Royal Thai dishes on the beach, under the stars. Or snack on banana pancakes as you experience the livelier side of the island by night. Fine dining comes in many forms here.
