About Koh Samui

If you are an admirer of the natural ambiance and nothing makes you feel better than the sight of sun kissing the water then the beautiful island of Koh Samui is a perfect place for you to spend your holiday.

The island is part of the Chumphon Archipelago which is located 700 km to the South of Bangkok in the Gulf of Thailand. Loaded with palm and coconut trees, Koh Samui is home to the 40,000 people among which 90 per cent are Buddhist. You can reach the island via plane and boat. To roam around the island, you can use taxi and bus. You can also hire motorbike, car, or bicycle.

The island of Koh Samui has one of the most beautiful and calm beaches in the world. Few of them include Nathon, Bang Rak, Laem Yai, Mae Nam, Lamai Bophut, Choeng Mon, Chaweng etc. The grand father and grand mother stones of Koh Samui are quite famous because of their shape. They look like male and female genitals respectively.

The beaches are wonderful to lie down and let your mind and body relax. The soothing blue color of sky and water entail a magical effect. The sceneries of the beaches of Samui look straight from some fantasy. It is beautiful beyond the words and calls for a photo session.

Dining: Samui is well known for its tasty coconuts. They are available everywhere. The island also hosts the traditional dishes of mainland Thailand and Southern Thailand along with the exotic sea food. Salted eggs, Chicken Biryani, rice noodles, fish curry and Rambutan are a must try.

Respect: The culture and traditions of the people of Koh Samui is a mixed one. Buddhist and Muslims form the population of the area. The people are used to the travelers but you should also behave in a respectful manner towards the local people.

Stay Safe: Refrain yourself from drinking tap water. Use the sealed water bottles. Watch out for the speeding motor bikes and use a helmet when you ride one yourself. It is wise not to go late at night on the beaches otherwise stay alert. Keep your eyes on your luggage at public transport.
