Koh Samui is Thailand’s third largest island, and is located in the province of Changwat Surratthani, surrounded by the smaller islands of Koh Phangan, Koh Tao and the enchanting Angthong National Marine Park. It is approximately 153 square miles, and lies 435 miles from Bankok, with a population of 50,000. The lush tropical rain forest thrives on an annual warm climate, and its pristine sandy beaches have made Koh Samui one of Asia’s most popular destinations. Whether you choose to spend the day trekking through the rainforest astride an elephant, or unwinding in a luxury spa, you’re sure to agree the activities are as diverse as the island itself. Be sure to check out the new 18-hole PGA standard golf course, with stunning views over Koh Phangan. Koh Samui is easily accessible with regular flights from Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya, and international flights to both Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.
