Koh Samui is the premier island destination for Thai tours in the Gulf of Thailand. Koh Samui is easily accessible and features beautiful beaches and a variety of activities for Thai travellers on any budget. Until the late 20th century, Samui was home to a small fishing community. Later, as visitors discovered this island gem lush with tropical forest on the interior and palm trees lining golden sand beaches by the shore, it was developed into an amazing tourist destination. Today, Chaweng and Lamai are bustling beach towns with fabulous resorts, internationally acclaimed restaurants, and world-class nightclubs. Thai tour packages to Koh Samui include cooking courses, yoga instruction, muay thai training, scuba diving and even golf. Koh Samui also offers some quieter beaches ideal for relaxation. This island paradise retains much of its natural beauty while offering hundreds of activities and services for the ultimate beach holiday.
