Things to do

Though only 25kms long, this palm-fringed island has an array of beaches, towns and areas worth visiting.
Chaweng is not only the biggest but the most exciting and developed town on the island. Located on the east coast, its popular for banana boat riding and parasailing. You’ll find the usual dive shops souvenir items, internet cafés and tour companies.

Once frequented by backpackers the beautiful Lamai Beach, with its cosy and easy-going ambience may be quieter than Chaweng but has recently enjoyed opening a number of luxury resorts, trendy cafés and restaurants.

On the northern coast of Samui lies Bophut, made up of two places: Bophut Beach, which stretches several kilometres between Big Buddha and Maenam beaches and the well-preserved Fisherman's Village situated in the middle section of the beach. With its old wooden Chinese shop-houses and fishing boats coming and going this picturesque fishing village is a true taste of local Samui life.
