If you have never been to the beautiful island of Koh Samui, then you should go there for your next vacation! With its magnificent beaches and majestic forests, this beautiful island is a must-visit for those who want a calm environment that is away from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you do take the time to visit this island, you will want to know what you can do here to make the most out of your vacation.
In this article, we will share with you three must-do activities during your visit to Koh Samui:
1. Sit back and relax on the sands
Seeing that you’re already on an island, you will definitely not forget to visit the beaches. From Lamai to Chaweng, there are plenty of beaches to visit on Koh Samui.
While we highly recommend that you explore them all if you want to enjoy what is perhaps the most relaxing beach on the island, Lamai Beach is one that you should not pass on. With its crystal-clear waters and soft white sands, don’t be surprised if you find that an hour or two has passed because you dozed off amidst this serene atmosphere.
If you’re looking for the beach for party-lovers instead, Chaweng beach will be the place for you. From sitting down by the bar and enjoying your favorite cocktails, to partying with the tourists and locals, your time here will be all about food and festivity, and it’ll surely make time fly!
2. Explore the underwater world
While the beach might be the go-to place, for now, you must not forget to explore what the underwater world has to offer. On Koh Samui, what it does offer is beautiful marine life that’s vibrant and exotic!
The best way to visit this magnificent world is by going on a scuba diving adventure! If you’ve never scuba-dived before, it will now be your chance to learn. On the island, there are plenty of diving centers with instructors ready to teach you all about the activity and land you the necessary certifications.
Once you receive your certifications and rent your gears, it is time to head to the best spots on the island. Chaweng beach is the place to go if you want to enjoy shallow dives. If you’re up for a deeper dive, on the other hand, then you should check out Chumphon Pinnacle for a truly remarkable experience.
3. Go on a spiritual journey
Koh Samui not only offers you a way to enrich your physical and emotional well-being but your spiritual well-being as well!
Visit the stunning Big Buddha found at Wat Phra Yai temple. Towering 12 meters, you aren’t going to miss it even if you tried. Another place you can visit is the Secret Buddha Garden, filled with a myriad of other statues and the stunning garden itself. Rivers and waterfalls also dot the area, making the visit even more worth it.
Koh Samui has plenty to offer to ensure that your time here is filled with nothing but fun and excitement. Even if you focus on the three activities we’ve shared, you’ll find out that they’re more than enough to fill your entire vacation, ensuring that no day goes by where you are bored.
If you genuinely want to enjoy all the best of Koh Samui, then we highly recommend that you stay at a boutique hotel or resort such as at Manathai Koh Samui! From fantastic food to stunning living quarters, we offer plenty to ensure that your time here on Koh Samui is a memorable one. If you are looking to spice up your time even further, consider enjoying the massages we offer or take the time to learn how to cook amazing local dishes. With that and more, you’ll genuinely come to believe that time flies when you’re having fun!
