When I think about Koh Samui it conjures up palm-fringed beaches, 5-star resorts, lazy days relaxing on sun lounges dipping in and out of the ocean, cocktails in the afternoon at the Pool Bar and an invigorating Thai massage under a grass roofed open-sided hut on the beach!
On my second visit to this resort island off the coast of Thailand, I could have easily grabbed my luggage off the ship and stopped here for a while. Koh Samui is one of my favourite places in South East Asia and re-visiting it for a day on our last port stop on our cruise was a treat.
Our ship anchored outside the busy port at Nathon. We decided we would spend our day in the main town on the island, Chaweng Beach. With 6 kms of white sandy beach, resort hotels, a hopping nightlife, numerous restaurants and shopping opportunities this makes Chaweng the most popular place on the island’s east coast.
However if you want to go exploring there are many more beaches to discover such as Lamai Beach, Bophut Beach, Maenam Beach and Big Buddha Beach.
There are many things to do on this island paradise, apart from just lounging around on one of the beautiful beaches. You can:
But at the end of the day it is all about the beach and you can even shop here or get a massage!
I couldn’t think of a better way to end our cruise than in this tropical island paradise. Koh Samui is one place I could definitely return to again and again, just for the sheer relaxing vibe that it exudes.
