Ko Samui is a beautiful place to be in Thailand. Ko Samui is home to about 40,000 full-time inhabitants, 90% of whom are buddhists. Ko Samui is the third-largest island in Thailand. Ko Samui is big enough for serious exploration by the adventurous and fit, but can be circumnavigated in just a couple of hours by motorbike or car.
Chaweng Beach – Chaweng Beach is the major beach on Ko Samui and one that has developed tremendously since the early 1990s. Just 20 years ago the beach was home to just a sprinkle of wooden bungalows but now the place is swamped with hotels, Italian pizzerias, Irish pubs, and go-go bars. Samui’s night life is becoming legendary but not always attracting the best standard of tourist. Chawemg is the place for a rowdy reckless party scene.
Lamai Beach – Like Chaweng, Lamai has been transformed from a hippy hangout into a fun, party place packed out with bars and night life. The beach is still in better condition Chaweng and the place doesn’t get so crowded, although some are shallow and have rocks. At the southern end of Lamai, there are some odd-looking rock formations. If it’s a quiet relaxing location you are after, then Lamai won’t be the ideal place for you.
Wat Khunaram Ko Samui – This temple is the island’s most famous temple for its mummified monk on display, The mummy sits upright in a glass casket and devotees offer it flowers and incense. The mummy is in fact the body of a very revered former abbot of the temple who was also a meditation masted who was able to predict his own death. However, it is reasonable to question how much reverence is really shown.
Diving – The south of Thailand has some of the most beautiful beaches and islands in the world, which are surrounded by crystal clear water and stunning corals. For this reasons the number of divers coming to Thailand has steadily increased over the past decade. Even though the best time year of the year to dive in the Ko Samui is between June and August, it is still perfectly possible to dive virtually all year round. As Thailand is considered one of the safest destinations for diving and snorkeling in the world, it is perfect for first timers.
