Koh Samui is one of the most spectacular getaways in all of Thailand – and the world.
Your best bet is to begin your stay with an island tour. Koh Samui’s most salient landmarks are the Big Buddha statue and the “Grandpa and Grandma Rocks.” The former reaches 15 meters tall and presides over a nice beach; like many of Koh Samui’s beaches, restaurants and shops abound here.
On your second day, book a Sea Kayaking Tour at Ang Thong National Marine Park. Koh Samui is ringed in small islands, and a “sea canoe” is one of the best ways to experience them. Paddling under and around a fantastic array of granite arches and outcroppings, you’ll explore the park and head to Tai Nalay, an amazing saltwater lake and marine habitat.
Spend your last day in the jungle. Viator can book you a tour in which you will explore the island’s interior in an open-air 4x4.You’ll get lunch at the restaurant on the mountain, in addition to an amazing view from atop.
