Located off the east coast of Thailand, Koh Samui is the second largest island after Phuket and attracts over 1.5 million tourists a year. It is a gorgeous place with natural resources, coral reefs, beaches, and coconut trees.

Koh Samui is a great getaway island as it is only an hour flight from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport. The island has beaches on the north, south, east and western regions. One of Koh Samui’s largest, most infamous and popular beaches located on the eastern coast is called Chaweng Beach. There, you will find countless hotels and resorts, restaurants and bars. The beach is approximately 7 kilometers long and white sand lines the beach. On Chaweng and in other areas of the island, you can rent a motorcycle just about anywhere and see all of the wonderful sites like temples, gorgeous views, rock formations, and much more. During the day, people usually go boating, diving, snorkeling, and even jet skiing.

Samui is definitely a great place to go with your family and friends to just kick back and relax. Young people can do countless daily activities and at night, everyone can enjoy the miraculous bars and clubs along Mango Street in Chaweng.
