A video overview of Koh Samui’s white sand beaches and lush landscape. Koh Samui is largest island in the Gulf of Thailand, and the third largest island in Thailand. Koh Samui, or the land of coconut trees as it is sometimes known, is 80 km. off the coast of Thailand and 700 km. south of Bangkok. Dotted with coconut palm fringed white sand beaches fronting warm, clear waters, the island of Koh Samui is a paradise for beach and nature lovers as well as for water sports enthusiasts. Chaweng and Lamai beaches are the most developed and frequented, but quieter beaches are found near the Big Buddha, Bo Phut, and Baan Hinyai.
Ang Thong National Marine Park is an underwater paradise for diving or snorkeling, as well as featuring hidden lagoons and tropical flora and fauna. Angthong Marine Park is just a short day trip from Koh Samui.
The nightlife near Lamai and Chaweng is renowned and spicy Thai food is increasingly popular worldwide. Five star resorts and luxury villas provide the best in services and amenities. Spas with an Asian flair dot the island. Koh Samui’s variety of stunning beaches, lush mountains, and water sport activities are hard to resist!
