What to do in Koh Samui

For such a small island Koh Samui offers its visitors a diverse range of things to see and do. From scuba diving to elephant trekking and from zoos to snake farms, there's something for everyone Koh Samui has many spectacular waterfalls, some of which you can drive to and others which require a trek through the jungle, but they're well worth the journey and make for a fantastic photo opportunity as well as a refreshing dip in the pools at the bottom. No visit to Koh Samui is complete without a visit to the majestic 12 metre tall Big Buddha sculpture which is the first thing you'll notice when approaching the island by air. You'll find a meditation centre at the site as well as a small market and a plethora of traditional Thai restaurants.

If you're a bit of an adrenalin junkie then why not explore the lush jungle by taking a thrilling canopy adventure ride. Be prepared to be exhilarated and excited as you soar above the trees looking over the gorgeous coastline down below. It's not to be missed.

Who doesn't enjoy a spot of retail therapy? In Koh Samui you'll find an abundance of sportswear with brands such as Nike and Reebok at greatly reduced prices. You could even order yourself a bespoke made to measure suit which can be yours for a fraction of the price you'd pay back home.

If you've managed to work up an appetite, then on Koh Samui you'll find a tantalising array of cuisines from Thai to Turkish, British to Brazilian and lots more. There's also a wide range of clubs, funky pubs and shows to keep you entertained until the small hours.

What's the weather like?

Koh Samui has a tropical climate which is hot and humid with an average temperature of around 30C. It's divided into three main seasons: dry, hot, and rainy. December to February is the dry season with plenty of sunshine and cooling breezes providing perfect conditions for wind and body surfing.

March to August is very sunny, hot and dry. It's a good time to visit if you can tolerate the higher temperatures of between 28C to 35C. If you do get too hot you can easily take a dip in the pool to cool off, or enter an air conditioned shop or room to re-charge your batteries.

September to November is known as the monsoon season but it's still hot with long bouts of sunshine. You may get caught in a shower of rain, but as a rule they don't last long.
