About Koh Samui


With a surface area of of 247 square kilometres Koh Samui is the second largest island in Thailand after Phuket. Koh Samui is also one of Thailand’s most popular tourist destinations attracting over 2.5 million visitors a year in recent years. Koh Samui offers a lot of variety in terms of standards of accommodation, beaches, food and activities. The island is, however, increasingly becoimg focussed on families on one or two week holidays and short visit Asian tourists, and as such its popularity is waning amongst people on backpacking tours around Thailand. There are now very few cheap beach bungalows on the island, although there is very cheap accommodation available inland on Koh Samui particularly for those visitors renting for a month or longer.
