Koh Samui

Koh Samui is an island off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus in Thailand.

The best time to visit… february – april.

Where to stay
Chaweng
If you want to be where the action is then choose an accommodation close to Chaweng. Imo Chaweng beach is the best beach in Koh Samui because of its clear water. The beach is also shallow so very well suited for children. If you’re staying for a longer holiday you will probably end up in Chaweng because of its shopping and many restaurants. It takes a good hour (or two) to walk the entire “walking street” of Chaweng.

Bo Phut
This is a cosy and relaxing place to stay. The Fisherman’s Village is rated the top attraction in Koh Samui and has several shops and restaurants to choose from. It is much smaller than Chaweng, but that can be preferred by many. The beach is clean, but not clear. It’s good for swimming, but not shallow so not suited for children.
