Koh Samui has changed enormously since being ‘discovered’ by backpackers in the 1970s. This lush tropical island has been developed significantly and is rapidly rivalling Phuket as one of Southeast Asia's premier beach destinations. Sitting in the warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui offers visitors an enticing mix of soft sand beaches, delicious fresh seafood, vibrant nightlife and luxurious boutique hotels.
There are also plenty of activities on offer these days - making it a great location for family beach holidays. Despite its changing face the magic of Samui is still there and the popularity of the island grows with each passing year.
