Sun-kissed shores and exclusive resorts

Known as Thailand’s most dynamic chameleon, Koh Samui is a cosmopolitan melting point of experiences and sensations; from palm-fringed shorelines and lush rainforest to cultural sights and delicious cuisine.

It’s an easy island to explore; travel along the one main road to see stunning beaches and resorts, all with their own unique identity. The more active traveller can enjoy a range of island activities including kite surfing and quad biking while culture vultures can visit the Big Budda, Koh Samui’s most prominent landmark situated in the north of the island. We also recommend paying a visit to the Fisherman’s Village in Bophut; a great place for evening dining and a spot of shopping.

If you’re visiting Koh Samui as part of a multicentre holiday, this is the perfect place to relax after a city break in Bangkok; or, follow your trip with a hideaway stay in Koh Tao.

Excursions in and around Koh Samui

Koh Samui Specialities

Food in Koh Samui caters for every taste, with rustic beach-side eateries, to the full five-star, three-course dining experience. As an island containing a number of resorts, it’s easy to find classic Thai fare and fresh seafood as well as global favourites, including French, Indian and Mediterranean.

Isaan cookery

Koh Samui has a large Isaan population, which has its own regional style of cuisine that’s prominent on the island. The key ingredients in Isaan cooking are sticky – or glutinous – rice and chillies, so expect well-balanced dishes packed with spice when you eat out here. They also frequently have on offer delicious vegetable fritters.

Coconuts

The island is also widely regarded to have the best-tasting coconuts in Thailand, so you won’t have to go far without having the opportunity to try some fresh. Takho Bangpo on Bang Por beach makes superb use of coconut and seafood, with recipes always being refreshed for the new season. You’ll also be able to pick up delicious coconut jam from markets and shops in the region.

Thai classics

All the favourite Thai dishes are available at most establishments. Red, green, yellow and panang curries remain immensely popular on Koh Samui and chefs often give the dishes their own twist and hits of spice.

One way to make sure you don’t miss any delicacies when you visit is to ask the restaurant for a random selection. Any you particularly like, ask what it’s called and then look out for it for the rest of your stay. You will always eat well in Koh Samui.

Street Food

Although the food markets are not as extensive as they are in Bangkok, you can still pick up a real sense of local flavour from Koh Samui’s street stalls. Head to Plai Laem and Chaweng in the north east of the island for the best street eating experiences.

Gaeng Som

This is a southern style sour curry, which can be prepared with meat or fish. Quite often pineapple is used to give the dish a touch of sweetness to go with the lashings of fresh chillies and turmeric.

Gaeng gai baan

Similar in some ways to the more well-known curry dishes, in that its sauce is made using coconut milk and curry paste. However, there’s a stronger hint of pepper and an overall richer taste that’s well worth seeking out on your holiday.

Wildlife

Na Tian Butterfly Garden

Colourful butterflies are attracted to the sweet fruits that line this netted garden. The brightly coloured landscaped grounds are filled with the tropical insects, but also the interesting plants that the butterflies call home. The garden also includes an insect museum, with rare creatures from Thailand as well as around the world.

Angthong National Marine Park Sea Safari

See the wonders of life under the sea across three nearby islands — Maek Kho, Tai Phow and Wao — on this safari. A series of islands makes up the marine park, and between each one is calm water for kayaking, sheltered bays for swimming and the opportunity to snorkel. With a backdrop of dramatic limestone cliffs this is a wonderful way to spend a day in Koh Samui.

Diving in Koh Samui

Koh Samui is in a great location within easy reach of some of Thailand’s best diving spots. Pick up your PADI certification at one of the many dive centres, or take a day trip out to some of the nearby hotspots, particularly Koh Tao. Whale sharks, colourful tropical fish and manta rays can all be seen among the coral, rocks and underwater landscapes here.
