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.
There are a number of different areas in Koh Samui which are popular with tourists, each with their own character. The most popular part of the island for foreign visitors is Chaweng, which has a long white sand beach and a busy town centre. Chaweng is the part of Koh Samui that most closely resembles other major tourist centres in Thailand, such as Pattaya and Patong in Phuket, with branded shops, international restaurants and lively nightlife. The other major tourist destination in Koh Samui is Bophut which has been sensitiviely developed, has less nightlife and is increasingly the destination of choice over Chaweng for many families and older visitors from Western Europe.
