INTRODUCTION TO KOH SAMUI
As the third largest island in Thailand, Koh Samui is both the luxury resorts and ideal place for backpackers’ high-quality and inexpensive travel. It is a 15-mile-long tropical oasis on the east coast of the mainland, with palm trees covering the entire island. It only needs to take a taxi to go to those big and small attractions, including the approximately 80-foot-tall golden Buddha, the beautiful rock on Lamai beach, the snake crocodile farm and ubiquitous monkeys that are picking coconuts. You can either enjoy the vibrant beach scenery and nightlife at the Chaweng Beach, or take a low-profile break at Mae Nam Beach. Of course, it is even an indispensable choice to spend one day in participating in the diving activities.
Set out by boat from Koh Samui, you can reach a variety of diving sites, such as the nearby Koh Ma and various major diving sites around the famous Ko Tao.
