Koh Samui has become a small tropical paradise, which attracts vacationers seeking sun, beach, partying and water sports. The island reveals charming and relatively calm corners, especially in the northeast and the south. Koh Samui also allows beautiful getaways to virgin islands, such as Ko Angthong, Ko Phan Ngan and Ko Tao.

Why a trip to Koh Samui:

With its quiet bays, its adorable sandy beaches, its authentic fishing villages, its beautiful coconut groves, its lush vegetation, still intact, its seaside resorts with a relaxed atmosphere … Koh Samui will suit families, vacationers in search of nautical activities, festivals and exoticism and to travelers in search of tranquility.
