Samui

Most Asian countries with coastline experience at least part of their wet season from June to August, but Koh Samui is one of the few places we recommend visiting at this time of year because it is typically hot and relatively dry. Beautiful, fine sand beaches on the calm, warm Gulf of Siam and a wide array of water sports, including sailing, fishing, snorkeling, and boogie boarding are available, in addition to hikes through the rainforest, delicious Thai cuisine, and indulgent spa treatments.

Experiences

Beaches

Sunbathing on Nathon, Laem Yai, Mae Nam, Bophut, Bang Rak, Choeng Mon, Chaweng and Lamai are all highly recommended. Build a beach bonfire and enjoy the sunset as you watch the stars emerge for the evening.

Full Moon Party

Venture to nearby Koh Pha Ngan to the world famous Full Moon Party, where revelers cover themselves in swirling, glowing body paint under the light of a full moon.

Muay Thai Kickboxing

Take a lesson in Muay Thai kickboxing, Thailand's national sport. It’s a strenuous sport that teaches how to focus one’s mind, improve self-defense skills and hand-eye coordination.

Private Brunch Cruise

Sail to an isolated island just off Tong Sala on Ko Pha Ngan for an idyllic brunch on white sand. Enjoy the jade waters as you watch the ferry boats come in to dock.

Snorkeling at Koh Tao

Head over to Koh Tao for some of the world’s finest snorkeling at Hin Wong Bay.

Spa Treatments

Pamper yourself in style as you enjoy a manicure, pedicure, hair or facial treatment, or a massage at one of Samui’s many decadent spas and salons.
