The third-largest Thai island, Koh Samui is part of an archipelago of more than 60 islands off Thailand’s east coast. Just a 45-minute flight from Bangkok, the island’s white sand, swaying coconut palms and calm waters help maintains its away-from-it-all charm.
A Concierge at Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, Thailand, shares tips for making your stay on Thailand’s third-largest island memorable, from where to find great stir-fried Thai noodles in Koh Samui to how you can cruise the island’s waters in style.
Whether by land or water, the island’s local flavour is best experienced outdoors.
Easily the most charming village on Koh Samui, Fisherman’s Village is made of a single strip of old Chinese-style shop houses. A great spot for boutique shopping and beachside dinners.
