The island of koh Samui is a tropical haven with numerous exciting resorts guaranteed to make your holiday one that will be remembered fondly for years to come. Thailand’s 3rd largest island still has a natural beauty about it that has yet to be affected by the increasing number of tourists that arrive here every week. The weather is warm and mild and seldom does it drop below 25 degrees even during the rainy season in late October and November. The amount of facilities and services on this exotic island is on the rise and the first-rate hotels and resorts available easily compete with those found in the rest of the world.
The main stretch of beach is Chaweng lined with bars belting out music, sultry nightclubs, and restaurants offering cuisine from all over the world. Take a shopping trip and you’ll be spoilt for choice as to what to spend your money on choose from silk cushions and bedspreads or wooden elephants, to silver jewellery and other exquisite souvenirs.
A little more quieter than Chaweng is Lamai Beach which has plenty of bars and restaurants to keep you refreshed but the mood is calmer here and you can find places to hang out without music pounding out of the speakers.
For some serious shopping you should try Nathon as there are hundreds of merchants and stores selling locally made furniture, beach or designer clothing and shoes, artwork, handbags, jewellery, and other souvenirs at more sensible prices than you can find anywhere else on the island. Remember to haggle over the price when shopping as it can be fun and get you a big discount.
Bophut is still a small fisherman’s village located on the northern part of the island and the area retains its charm and traditional way of life. There are lots of trendy coffee shops, cafe’s and small restaurants along the waterfront and it’s a great place for a quiet drink or meal in the late afternoon or early evening.
