Places to go and things to do in Koh Samui

When to Visit

When to Visit

December to March are the best times to visit Koh Samui when the relatively cooler temperatures are less stifling, there is little chance of rain and you will enjoy 8 hours of sun. October and November represent the rainy season but with temperatures reaching upwards of 30°C even during the fresher months, you can confidently book flights to Koh Samui for most times of the year.

Top Beaches

Chaweng Beach is Koh Samui’s top beach destination, attracting holidaymakers with its dazzling ivory white sands, breathtaking scenery and lively nightlife. Lamai Beach offers a similar blend of fun and relaxation, whilst Bophut entices with its charm as one of the oldest beaches in Koh Samui. You can also head to Maenam Beach to enjoy island life away from the crowds, with its characterful bungalow accommodation and beautiful views of Koh Phangan.

Shopping in Koh Samui

The large Central Festival Samui shopping centre is Koh Samui’s best shopping location, filled with countless options from designer labels to brilliant bargains as good as anything you’ll find in Bangkok. Lamai Walking Street is also recommended with its aromatic street food options, handmade gifts and clothing, while Lamai Night Plaza is a great way to experience one of Koh Samui’s captivating Night Markets.

 
Nightlife

Koh Samui is renowned for its nightlife, most notably its colourful Full Moon parties. Taking place – as the name suggests – with each monthly full moon, revellers flock to the southernmost tip of Koh Phangan to dance the night away on the soft sands of this heavenly island. Chaweng Beach is a hive of activity from dusk till dawn with its restaurants, bars and nightclubs, while the island’s famous Ladyboy Cabaret performances offer a dazzling spectacle.

 
Food and Drink in Koh Samui

Not only is Koh Samui home to some of Thailand’s most delectable renditions of its famed cuisine, it also offers a fine setting in which to savour it. Fragrant curries, tantilising Pad Thai and freshly-caught seafood can be found across Koh Samui, a culinary experience enhanced by spectacular views from a hilltop restaurant or under the starry sky on the beach. Head to Chaweng Beach for a wide array of eating options, from upscale restaurants to charming street food choices.

 
Top Attractions

Angthong National Marine Park comprises of 42 islands with high rising limestone karsts and white sand beaches. Guided diving and snorkeling is available to explore the stunning marine life. The Big Buddha is perhaps the most iconic site on the island overlooking Koh Samui. The 12m-high Buddha is impressive enough on its own as well as being a great spot to overlook the island. 
Koh Tao – meaning Turtle Island – is a picture perfect location with its turquoise lagoon waters to discover its famous inhabitants.

 
Zip-lining Adventures

Combine adventure with a unique way of seeing this beautiful island by zip-lining through Koh Samui's canopy. Fly through the stunning rainforest with views of the forest floor below, waterfalls ahead and you may even catch a little exotic wildlife right alongside you! 
For those who’d rather explore Koh Samui at ground-level, there are also numerous 4x4 safari and quad biking tours available.

 
Kayaking in Angthong National Marine Park

To experience the full majesty of Koh Samui, a trip out on the water is a must for any visitor. Angthong National Marine Park will leave you spellbound however you experience this natural wonder, but kayaking through its azure waters is an experience not to be missed. Kayak among towering limestone karsts and waterfalls, explore into caves and hidden nooks and mysterious sea stacks. It's adventure at its most glorious.
