This island paradise is one of the most popular holiday spots in Thailand and is perfect if you’re looking for an unspoilt haven. You’ll find lush green forests, soaring waterfalls and spectacular beaches including Chaweng, the longest and most beautiful beach on the island. Chaweng is a great place to base yourself if you like to be at the centre of all the action. There’s a great choice of hotels with options to suit every budget, along with very lively nightlife. To see more of what Koh Samui has to offer, take a day trip out to Ang Thong National Marine Park, made famous by the movie ‘The Beach’. This group of 40 small islands is full of turquoise lagoon pools, hidden caves and secluded white sandy beaches just waiting to be discovered.
