Koh Samui

Samui is the third biggest island in Thailand and the largest in an archipelago of over and above 80 islands that consist of the Ang Thong National Marine Park. Although Samui is small enough to go around the entire island in a couple of hours by the use of motorbike or car, the island highlights, choice of beaches and happenings, make it impossible to enjoy the island in only one day.
