Holidays in Koh Samui
The area and getting around
Chaweng is the hub of the island, and your choice if you want to be in the thick of the action. Close to the airport, it is particularly popular among the party set, and offers the biggest variety of restaurants, activities, attractions and shops on the island. Lamai to the east offers a similar range of amenities but on a smaller scale, and is the better option if you are looking for a bargain.Cheaper areas for the backpacking crowd
Maenam to the west is the favourite for backpackers, with its fair share of rough-and-ready but perfectly authentic restaurants. The north-eastern beach of Big Buddha offers the best of all worlds. It boasts a beautiful beach and is a quiet and relaxing area, whilst putting you within easy reach of the nightlife of Chaweng Beach and the unique shopping options of Fisherman’s Village.
Travellers and activities
There are no superlatives left to describe the beaches in Thailand. So, let’s look at the specifics. To get into the nature, head for Taling Ngam, a remote beach which is the cleanest and most picturesque on the island. Chaweng Noi is the best choice if you want to be in the centre of the action, it is close to the nightlife and attracts a real fun-loving crowd. Bang Po in the northwest corner of the island is the top destination for retirees and families looking to escape the crowds of other parts of the island.Koh Samui for party goers
Koh Samui is known as one of Thailand’s top partying destinations. The island’s full moon parties are legendary and attract an endless stream of revellers keen to party on the soft white sand all night long. The myriad discos, clubs and beer bars will keep you occupied until the sun comes up, and the prices are exceedingly handsome.
Before the tourist era, Koh Samui relied on its coconut plantations, which is why it was then given the nickname “island of coconuts and monkeys”.
