What We Love About Koh Samui

Thailand's second largest island, Koh Samui, is an island paradise and home to some of Asia's best beaches and iconic landmarks like the golden statue of Buddha at Wat Phra Yai. The waters around Koh Samui are rich in marine life and perfect for diving enthusiasts or even just for snorkeling. One underwater paradise is the Angthong Marine Park - visiting this protected reserve will surely not disappoint. For a slice of life by the shore, visit the Bophut's Fisherman’s Village that was once a flourishing area for fishermen and their catch. For the adventurous or avid lovers of Thai food, how about some beachside cooking classes?
