Koh Samui (occasionally spelled Ko Samui) is an island of natural beauty and charm, a place where you can have your holiday anyway you like it, kicked back and relaxed or active and fastpaced. Beautiful white sand beaches, clean, clear warm water; lush tropical gardens and gentle ocean breezes await you at this ideal holiday destination. If you love the beach, this is the place for you!
Koh Samui weather is almost always beautiful. Blue sky days and a nice ocean breeze are the norm. For the purists, late December to the end of March is the ideal tropical island weather experience.
Some like it hot! If so, April to June is the time to really bake. Some like it wet! Try mid-October to early December
Set on Koh Faan, Big Buddha temple is reached by a causeway that connects it to the main island. The Big Buddha can be seen at a distance of several kilometres and is often the first landmark people see when arriving to Samui by air.
Art often imitates Nature, but less common is Nature imitating Art, especially the Art of the Ribald. But in Thailand anything is possible and these rocks, known as Grandpa (Ta) and Grandma (Yai), look, respectively, like male and female genitalia.
Remarkably, even more than 30 years on the monkís body shows little sign of decay. For some visitors, having a dead man in full view might be a shocking sight, but for Thais it is something to reflect upon and revere.
