    Koh Samui Island Holidays

Koh Samui is Thailand's third largest island at 247sq. km out of a group of nearly 100 beautiful islands and just an hour's flight from the bustling streets of Bangkok, lies the peaceful island of Koh Samui. A tropical paradise with a green mountainous interior, long pristine palm-fringed beaches, colourful coral reefs, warm sheltered seas, quaint local villages, coconut plantations and easy-going people with a ready smile that welcomes you.

With its picture-postcard beauty, Koh Samui has become one of Southeast Asia's top tourist destinations in the last decade. Samui is snugly situated in the Gulf of Thailand and surrounded by other gem like islands of Ko Tao and Ko Pha-ngan and just 35 kms off the coast of Surat Thani Province.

Koh Samui has become everyone's dream of a tropical island where one can enjoy the comfort of their stay at 3 stars to 5 luxury resorts, whilst experiencing the beauty of the island. While many visitors are content to laze their days away on the beaches and soaking up the sun, water-enthusiasts are bound to find something from the many choices of activities ranging from diving, snorkelling, windsurfing, paragliding and other soft adventure activities alike. For those interested in more than just a beach holiday, other well-known attractions of Samui include the Big Buddha Shrine, picturesque waterfalls, a butterfly garden, a snake show, a monkey training centre and health spas dedicated to pampering the body. The rest of Koh Samui is easily accessible via its most appealing feature which is the loop road, making a 50km. circuit around the island, giving you a glimpse of superb beaches on the north, east and west coasts.
