Lamai Beach Koh Samui

Koh Samui is the premier island destination in the Gulf of Thailand. The island offers everything you can expect from a perfect tropical holiday destination, such as beautiful white sandy beaches, lush vegetation, lots of restaurants serving simple dishes or high class cuisine including fresh delicious seafood, a vibrant nightlife and much more.

Until the late 20th century, Samui was home to a small community engaged primarily in fishing and harvesting coconuts. There was not even a proper road structure on the island until the early 1970s. However, once foreign visitors discovered this island gem, lush with tropical forest, fringed with palm tree lined stretches of golden sand, and surrounded by pellucid, aquamarine water, development quickly followed.

Today the beaches of Chaweng and Lamai are bustling beach towns with fabulous beach resorts, internationally acclaimed restaurants, and world class nightclubs. Activities around Koh Samui include cooking courses, yoga instruction, Muay Thai training, scuba diving, and even golf. The nearby Angthong National Marine Park is a kayaking paradise and the islands of Koh Tao & Koh Nang Yuan are a top day trip destination for snorkelers and divers.
