Koh Samui is famous for its sandy beaches, swaying palms, crystal-clear waters, bars and restaurants. It is an island of natural beauty where tourists can find waterfalls, refreshing plunge pools and beautiful scenic walks. Once a month, travelers can take a 30-minute boat ride to Koh Phangan to experience a famous Full Moon Party. These spectacular outdoor beach events feature DJs, entertainers and dancing that lasts until sunrise. One of Thailand’s best-loved islands, Koh Samui appeals to every type of vacationer.
Koh Samui, 295 mi/475 km south of Bangkok, was one of Thailand's early tourist developments. With its international airport and visitors flying in for a week of sun and sea, it sometimes resembles a foreign country. In the two main towns—particularly Chaweng—clubs, bars and large hotels dominate. Although quieter areas can still be found, the island is experiencing over-development.
Despite the numbers of tourists, Koh Samui does have lovely beaches and water that's a magical blue-green. The idyllic atmosphere can still be found—it's just that there are now more people enjoying it.
Sights—Mu Ko Ang Thong National Marine Park; Hin Ta and Hin Yai; Na Muang waterfall; the Big Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Yai).
Museums—The Art Samui Museum.
Memorable Meals—Fine French food at Chez Francois; traditional Thai cuisine at The Mother Restaurant.
Late Night—Elegant cocktails at Woobar; live music at Reggae Pub; the Thai stage show at Starz Cabaret.
Cruise ships dock at the Port of Koh Samui in Na Thon, the main port city where the mainland ferries also arrive. There is no passenger terminal, but taxis will be waiting at the pier. Negotiate your price before stepping into the vehicle. Be prepared for the fact that drivers will try to sell you a full-day tour of the island. If this interests you, bargain hard.
The easiest and cheapest way to reach the beach is by songthaew, a shared pickup that doubles as a local bus. Just flag one down that's heading in your direction. From Na Thon pier, which is on the island's west side, you'll want to travel clockwise and north to reach Big Buddha or Chaweng Beach.
