A tropical paradise, Ko Samui is the second largest island in Thailand. It's popular for pristine beaches coconut groves and hilltop rainforests. Scattered with posh resorts and spas, it’s a perfect holiday and honeymoon destination. The golden Big Buddha statue at Wat Phra Yai Temple is a major attraction on a small island joined by a barrier to Ko Samui. The town centre thrives with pubs, go-go bars and nightclub parties. In contrast, Bo Phut and other adjoining villages are more laid-back with walking streets, cafes, street food and night markets. If water activities like snorkelling and diving tickles your fancy, Ang Thong Marine National Park is the place to explore.
