Amazing Thailand – Koh Samui

Amazing Thailand – Koh Samui

Koh Samui is located in the south of Thailand and contains many beautiful beaches and islands in the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. Koh Samui is an idyllic tourism destination and popular with all ages – but in particular attracts many younger visitors. The island is well served by daily flights from Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) by boutique carrier Bangkok Airways.

Here are some good accommodation options for Irish visitors. There is a vast array of accommodations to suit all price brackets plus a vast  range of activities to suit all age groups. Koh Samui epitomises the place for that really relaxing holiday.

Koh Samui features in Amazing Thailand’s new Shades of Emerging Destinations project that is designed to highlight emerging destinations through a ‘hub and hook’ concept, associating new areas with those that visitors are already familiar with: for example, Koh Samui is easily paired with Chumpon and Ranong.

Fisherman’s Village Samui is located in the historical area of Bophut, with rustic-style buildings housing boutique shops, many restaurants and some small hotels. Every Friday, the whole area becomes the site for the Fisherman’s Village Walking Street market.
