Koh Samui travel tips

The island is small so most of the Ko Samui hotels are in neighborhoods that are close to public transportation of some kind. The main modes of transportation are taxis, songthaews, scooters, and car rentals. Car rental companies are located at the Samui Airport with a range of different cars to choose from. Discuss your fee up front when using taxis and songthaews and have your change ready for the songthaews, which are worth a try at least once to experience local life. The more adventurous may want to rent a scooter or flag down a motorcycle taxi. Once again, the price needs to be negotiated.

Learn about attractions and sights in Koh Samui

The beaches alongside most of the hotels in Ko Samui are the main attraction. There are, however, other places for island visitors to enjoy. The golden statue of Buddha near the airport is worth a visit. Please dress appropriately for a sacred place and enjoy the experience of Big Buddha. A refreshing change from the salt water is an outing to the Na Muang waterfalls on the southern side of the island. Swim in the freshwater pools below the falls, which are surrounded by jungle vegetation. Fisherman's Village Samui in the historic area of Bophut is great for shopping and dining. The humble buildings hide trendy boutiques and great restaurants. Have a seat on the beach and enjoy scenic views over the ocean.

Attendees can find cheap hotels in Ko Samui and catch a ferry or speedboat to and from the island. Ko Samui celebrates Songkran, the water festival, in April each year. Locals bring in the new year by dousing each other with water, which symbolizes flushing out bad luck. Everyone, visitors included, should expect a soaking during this three-day festival. Loy Krathong, translated as "float a basket," is a festival of lights celebrated in November. The sight of the candle-lit baskets as they float away is breath-taking. Chaweng Lake and the port of Nathon are a few of the places to witness this event.
