Holidays To Koh Samui: Guide + Hotels

Chaweng Beach, Ko Samui
Chaweng Beach, Ko Samui

Koh Samui lies off the East coast of Thailand, near the town of Surat Thani on the mainland. It is Thailand's third largest island and its beaufiul white sandy beaches, stunning coral reefs and coconut palms have made it a firm favourite with visitors.

Surrounded by around sixty other islands, Ko Samui is a great point to start exploring the Ang Thong National Marine Park or to get boats on to Ko Pha Ngan or Ko Tao, or just to sit back and relax. As well as stunning white sandy beaches and luscious lagoons, the interior of the island hides beautiful waterfalls to discover when you tire of the beach.
