An island off the east coast of Thailand, Koh Samui is the third largest following Phuket and Koh Chang. People come to Samui quite simply to enjoy the beaches which remain stunning after decades of development, helped by a height restriction on new buildings and other conservation measures.
Many visitors opt for just lying on the beach with a cold beer in hand and ogling at the babes and hunks sauntering past. There isn’t all that many activities nor much to see on the island. A certain pair of rocks on Lamai amuses some visitors, Bang Rak has a large but nondescript Buddha statue, and there are some waterfalls (notably Na Muang) of minor interest.
Samui also has many sister islands; Koh Tao, (one of the top diving islands in Asia) Koh Phangan, Angthong National Marine Park, Koh Tan and beautiful Koh Nang Yuan.
Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan – There are about 10,000-20,000 people every full moon night at this Koh Phangan beach party. It is of course known as the Full Moon Party. International and Thai DJ’s are making the crowd go wild. Paint yourself in UV colors and let your body lose control. Come with your friends or meet new ones from all parts of the globe.
