Kosamui Thailand

Ko Samui island is located in the southern province of Suratthani in the Gulf of Thailand, approximately 700 kilometers southeast of Bangkok.

Samui island is Thailand's third largest covering an area of 247 sq km it is 25 kilometers at it's longest point and 21 kilometers at its widest.

Samui island is also known as the Coconut Island as it gives harvest to over two million coconuts each month.

Not that long ago Samui island was a favourite destination for adventure seeking sun worshippers. These seasoned travellers visited Samui long before it was in the guide books. Seaside bungalows were available for as little as 150 baht per night, and you could count on spending day after sunny day on the beach in near perfect tranquillity. These visitors found there was an almost mesmerizingly restful and carefree feel to the island that often kept them here long after they intended to return home.

Those who have known and loved Samui island since those early days may not agree about the current pace of development in some areas, but for the most part they do agree on one thing. The island retains its sleepy magic and Ko Samui is still a tropical paradise.

However, much of Samui island, especially south coast, remains largely undeveloped. A day spent on a motorbike or in a jeep exploring this lush terrain is a day of sheer serendipity. With its spectacular and astonishingly diverse flora, and its dozy little neighborhoods peopled by some of the world's most amiable islanders, this kind of exploration is sure to provide the delights you imagined when you planned your holiday.

Short direct flights here now on Samui island depart several times a day from Bangkok, Phuket, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore. You can also arrive by train, bus and boat.
