They call it the Land of Smiles, and you'll know just why the moment you touch down in Thailand. The warmth and courteousness of the Thai people is one of the reasons why their country has become one of the world's most popular multi-centre holiday destinations. A Koh Samui holiday is an unforgettable way to experience their unique hospitality.
The hustle and bustle of capital Bangkok and the fascinating ancient traditions of the northern hill tribe regions are a splendid introduction to the Far East. For most though, it is the sheer indulgent relaxation of Thailand's southern beach resorts that make it a special getaway.
An island situated in the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui holidays now rival Bali and Phuket as arguably south east Asia's most popular coastal retreat. A Koh Samui holiday has all the hallmarks of a tropical paradise tamed by the incredible luxury of a host of very special resorts that rank amongst the world's most resplendent. Some of the highlights of a Koh Samui holiday include:
Join a diving school expedition or else simply take your snorkel and swim with the incredible array of marine life that inhabit the crystal clear waters of the gulf.
Take a ride on Thailand's national symbol, the elephant, out into the lush jungle that covers the island and experience monkeys, komodo dragons and the spectacular birds of paradise in their natural habitat.
Step out for the evening. No Koh Samui holiday is complete without sampling the artisan creations of local and international chefs on the island who use fresh seafood and local produce to create incredible fusion food.
Charter a yacht or a sailboat and head out to see some of the spectacular rock formations that rise from the waters along the coastline where dolphins and whales also loiter.
A Koh Samui holiday is synonymous with the natural beauty of the area, but also the luxurious resorts that cater for visitors.
