Adventures in Thailand – Island Hopping from Koh Samui
The main reason behind Thailand’s popularity in the touristic world is its pristine islands and beaches. Island hopping in Thailand is all about adventures and excitement with snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, trekking in the lush green jungles, exploring the quaint island culture, and also gathering some physical and mental health elements with Yoga and meditation camps, set in peaceful ambiance. When you live in Thailand you get the diversity. You can do anything here from adventuring to relaxing. Islands of Thailand open up a world of excitement as well as never-before luxury for you.
With its gorgeous beaches, fantastic restaurants and vibrant nightlife, Koh Samui has earned an unmatched high reputation amongst tourists. Having its own airport, this lovely island is easily accessible. Though it is quite well developed by now, it has not lost its laidback charm at all. The main beaches of Koh Samui are Lamai and Chaweng which offer an exciting nightlife and shopping. These are on the east coast of the island, but you should not forget to visit the charming little fishing hamlet Bo Phut on the north which is famous for its handicrafts and boutique dining options. You can also go trekking in the central mountainous part of the island. From Koh Samui, you can easily access Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.
Something clicked in your mind with the name Koh Phangan? Yes, you are right – this is the island where the notorious full moon parties are held. If you happen to arrive on the island on a full moon night, you should attend the party on the Haad Rin Beach, but with due care – it’s really worth! But if you want to keep swaying lazily in a hammock sipping a delicious fruit drink, that is also equally worth. You can also book an excursion which introduces you to some exquisite hidden gems on the island, travel in a long tail boat to the tiny Koh Ma Island – a snorkeling paradise and get a chance to view the fabulous waterfalls of River Than Sadet – favorite spots of King Rama V. The highest point of the island is Kao Ra at an altitude of 627 meters. It will give you some stunning views.
Though near Ko Samui, and so, easily accessible from there, Ko Tao is incredibly leisurely. It is also called Turtle Island and is the smallest in this region. It has been adorned with a variety of lovely beaches and diving spots, with a very few restaurants that only add to the sereneness of the island, rather than lights and shouts. Swimming and snorkeling can be best enjoyed here with the wonderful angelfish, clownfish and parrotfish, greeting you all through. You can snorkel straight off the beach on Turtle Island!
Samujana is a fabulous villa estate on Koh Samui Island which features some of the most beautiful homes for sale and luxury villas to rent. The specialty of all these accommodations is they offer you breathtaking views across the ocean. Whether you have come for a holiday, wedding, or any special occasion, Samujana offers you world-class service. And it is perched very conveniently just a few minutes from the airport as well as from the hotspots like Choengmon and Chaweng.
So, never miss this blend of adventure and relaxation; plan your next activity of island-hopping and snorkeling in Thailand’s heavenly islands.
