Koh Samui Things To Do

Koh Samui Beach HolidaysKoh Samui ResortKoh Samui wildlife

Should you eventually decide you need a little break from the beachcomber lifestyle, Thailand’s Koh Samui island has plenty to offer.

- Become more Buddha-wiser: visit the 12-metre high “Big Buddha” which sits impressively at the top of ceremonial dragon-steps at the Wat Phra Yai. Samui also has a number of other significant temples, including Wat Khunaram, where the mummified body of Loung Pordeang - a monk who died in a meditating position - is on display.

- The Grandmother and Grandfather rocks on the south end of Lamai beach are an occasional source of amusement for tourists due to their striking similarity to a vagina and penis.

- The mountain jungle in the interior of the island is an excellent day out and home to a number of beautiful gardens built by legendary Samuian farmer Nim Thongsuk. It also contains the waterfalls at Na Muang, working rubber plantations and the most amazing views over the Ang Thong archipelago. The roads in the jungle are an adventure in themselves. While regular tourists normally take a tour with an experienced local Samui driver/guide, you can easily venture forth with some common-sense precautions.

- There are numerous animal attractions dotted around the island including a crocodile farm, monkey theatre, elephant trekking, a snake farm, an aquarium and a butterfly garden.

- Take a day trip to the beautiful Ang Thong National Marine Park: you could spend half your holiday and still have more to absorb here. Boats leave Na Thon several times a day.

- Ko Pha Ngan island has a full-moon party at the appropriate time each lunar month and many tourists in Samui often hop a slow ferry or speedboat to the nearby island to join in the dusk-to-dawn high energy dancing and drinking marathon.

- And after all this and you still feel in need of an adrenaline boost, there’s always Muay Thai boxing regularly at the island's stadiums in Chaweng and Lamai, including all-female bouts.
