Over the last 30 years, Koh Samui has risen to become one of South East Asia’s most vibrant and welcoming
tourist destinations. Beauty and biodiversity are to be found in abundance on the island and in the surrounding seas.
Samui is circled by white sandy beaches, with crystal blue waters, lush green vegetation, and warm and friendly people.
Haan and Chinese nomads started to arrive on the island back in the 6th century, passing through from
Southern China towards what is now Malaysia. With Samui’s fertile soil and all the sheltered bays,
it is not surprising that small communities formed all around the coast.
The island today is in stark contrast to those humble beginnings. A recently refurbished international
and domestic air terminal now welcomes the arrival of hundreds of sun-seekers almost hourly. And, as
the range of technologies, facilities and services on the island continues to improve and diversify,
Koh Samui continues to grow in both status and popularity.
