Koh Samui is a name-drop-worthy island of palm trees, emerald-tinged waters and sultry weather that elicits a languid, lazing-by-the-pool kind of pace. There’s sunshine and tropical warmth almost all year round because it avoids the main monsoon season. This means you can pack light: swimwear, SPF and plenty of room for souvenirs.
Koh Samui is a microcosm of Thailand’s beaches. Travellers love it for the white-gold sands, tourist-friendly towns and variety of hotels complete with infinity pools and world-class restaurants. Waterfalls and walking trails inland give you a taste of Thailand’s tropical and rugged mainland, and offshore, you can go kayaking and snorkelling around the karsts in Ang Thong National Marine Park. Even if you’ve opted for a resort tucked away on a quieter part of the island, the night markets and live music bars of Chaweng and Lamai are just a taxi ride away.
