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?

The coordinator comes to pick you up at the airport before time. And take us to the point to board the car When reaching the driver, the car is very good, the service is good, speaking from polite, clean car, the customer safely arrives at the destination. Have a chance to come back to use the service for sure

The itinerary of Ang Thong National Park is not explained in Chinese, so there are very few mainlanders on the island. The boat is not very luxurious, but there are cartilage and cushions on the top of the boat. The boat trip is just one and a half hours to sunbathe and slide the canoe across the rocks to enjoy the original Antong. The beauty of nature is the most beautiful memory of this trip to Koh Samui

perfect! At the stage of the epidemic, I was the only guest. The coach was French, and I was very enthusiastic and chatting very happily. If you are a person who likes off-roading, you must choose 3 hours. It is super awesome and very challenging. Several times you think you are going to overturn your car 🤣 But the whole journey is super safe and good value for money!

A great diving experience. The instructor Mark came from the UK and was just the same age as me, because the epidemic instructor only took me to go out on the same boat with the guests of other diving companies. All the things that should be noted are very detailed by the instructor, and will guide you to the scenery worthy of attention during the dive, and the itinerary with full marks💯
