A jewel in the Gulf of Siam off the eastern coast of Thailand, Koh Samui is part of an archipelago of more than 60 islands in the South China Sea. Fine golden sands, swaying coconut palms and calm waters are emblematic of this quiet and peaceful island. The seas off the palm-fringed beaches are full of abundant varieties of exotic corals, fish and shellfish as well as dramatic limestone rock formations. Slower to develop than Phuket, Koh Samui has a busy beach area around Chaweng, however the handful of stunning luxury hotels are tucked away in quiet coves overlooking turquoise seas.
Features in the following itineraries
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
