We were fortunate enough to visit Koh Samui for a short but splendid vacation break and like to equip you with a few tips of what to do in Koh Samui:
Rent a car or mofa and drive around the small island. A tour around the island takes roughly 1.5 hours.
Visit Namuang waterfalls and zip line above the waterfalls for a little adrenalin kick. There are two waterfalls – Namuang 1 one is easy to access and only at 5 minute walking distance from the parking space. Namuang 2 is more difficult to get to.
On your way, visit Nikki Beach club for a cold glass of something refreshing.
Stop by Bho Phut, a cute little fishing village with some nice cafes, bars and shops.
Go diving: Most diving spots are around Koh Tao. You will not find many corals or big fish however you will see gigantic mussels and big schools of tuna fish and barracudas
Sail rock in between Koh Tao and Koh Panang is by far the best dive site in Koh Samui with interesting rock formations and caves and if you are very lucky you might spot a whale shark.
Visit the big Buddha statue and marvel the beautiful view from above the temple.
Go to the spa: Chaweng offers countless spa’s and you can’t leave Koh Samui without having had a massage. Magnolia is one of the best spas in Chaweng. It offers a nicely decorated interior and excellent service.
