Koh Samui

Koh Samui is a tropical gem located in the warm blue waters off the country’s south eastern seaboard. It is the Kingdom’s third largest island, after Phuket. Relatively unknown for years, this sun lovers’ paradise has now attained international standards of service and accommodation. Fortunately, it has also earned a reputation for retaining its friendly image as well as its natural environment. Easy to reach from Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya or overseas, Koh Samui is literally covered with coconut trees and bougainvilleas, which in turn are surrounded by white sandy shores and stunning turquoise seas. Whether you’re looking for remote beaches, great shopping, delicious dining or an exciting nightlife, you’ll find it on Koh Samui.
