Ko Samui is Thailand's second-largest island and lies in the Gulf of Thailand off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus.
Ko Samui is known for its beautiful palm-fringed beaches, delightful coconut groves and dense mountainous rain-forests. All is made more enjoyable by the presence of luxury resorts and posh spas. One remarkable site to visit is the iconic 40 foot-tall golden Buddha statue at Wat Phra Yai Temple, located on a tiny island connected to Ko Samui by a tranquil causeway. The towns around the popular beaches of Chaweng and Lamai, on the east coast, have lounge chairs and strolling vendors, and are the island's party centers, filled with pubs, go-go bars and nightclubs. North of the island is the more laid-back area of Bo Phut, which has former Chinese shophouses converted to stylish restaurants, cafes and boutique hotels, and a night market selling street food, clothing and souvenirs. Very close by is the mild and calm Maenam Beach. The old capital Nathon is on the west coast. Don't miss out on day trips to the limestone-cliff islets of Ang Thong Marine National Park to practice snorkeling and diving.
For great beach weather, visit Ko Samui during Shoulder Season from February to March. Low season offers fewer crowds but might be rainy with the possibility of having a string of nice days.
