Activities & Excursions
Koh Samui most definitely takes advantage of its surroundings, with tour companies ferrying adventure-seekers in their droves to the nearby Ang Thong Marine National Park for a day of scenery, kayaking and snorkelling. Learning to dive is also a popular option. But there are dozens of activities for old and young alike, ranging from football golf, elephant trekking, safari tours, temple and monument tours, off-road quad biking, fishing trips, jungle zip lines, and many, many more.Additionally there is also an 18-hole tournament golf course, if your pleasure lies in this direction.
Chaweng and Lamai have the accolades for Samui’s liveliest nightlife locations, and you’ll find yourself spoiled for choice when it comes to live bands, karaoke clubs, Irish bars, world famous DJ’s, beach parties, go-go bars or super-clubs.
DINING AND DRINKING
With the island catering increasing more for up-market visitors, it’s only natural that the number of world-class restaurants has increased correspondingly. You’ll find a diverse selection of fine-dining restaurants on Samui, particularly in those many Chaweng resorts which have signature dining attached, and with Bophut’s Fisherman’s Village boasting a wide variety of cuisine all in one small area.
For certified divers, there are daily trips to the top sites in Thailand and dive operators can usually fill your request for a special site. Dive shops have access to the most boats on Samui so you can choose which site you want to go, and on what day.
Spa & Wellbeing
Samui is swiftly becoming one of the world’s premier locations for all things connected with health and well-being and many of our visitors come here specifically to cleanse, detox, rejuvenate and relax.
The variety of beaches on Koh Samui is impressive. Popular choices include the long white beach of Chaweng, the rocky coast around Lamai, or the placid sands over on the west coast. But if it’s utter solitude you’re after, then you need to get off the beaten track and discover for yourself the unspoiled and isolated beaches in the far south of the island.
