5 Family Friendly Activities to do in Koh Samui - Best Family Vacation, Ever!

Koh Samui has been one of the more popular Thai island destinations in recent years on account of its idyllic sandy beaches and thrilling water sports. Here are 5 fun things to do in Koh Samui proving that it's a "family-friendly" vacation choice, with heaps of fun activities for parents and children alike.


An Thong Marine Park

If you want an exciting day of island hopping, and fun in the water, make sure you set aside an entire day to visit the An Thong Marine Park. The marine park is a collection of 42 islands, 40 uninhabited and remote. You can expect to spot all manner of wildlife from dolphins and sea turtles in the water and langurs hanging from trees on these islands. What makes this truly an exciting option for kids is that they can take their pick from snorkelling and swimming to even kayaking. Families can also expect to get discounts when embarking on day trips and some of the tour operators even offer some discounts for children.


Pink Elephant Samui Water park

Nothing screams family fun like an epic water park! Parents will be happy to know this water park is particularly suitable and safe for children under the age of 12. However, even older kids will be able to get in some thrills on some of the steeper water slides. You can also expect to find multiple theme-based swimming pools, water slides, and towers. That's not all, adults can expect warm water, a jacuzzi to kick back, and take it easy while your kids frolic in the water. After a long, water-logged day, make sure you've booked your entire family into some comfortable accommodation. If you are looking for the best family resort Koh Samui has to offer, there's plenty of accommodation options here to suit both small and large families alike. Hotels such as Avani+ Samui Resort have family rooms and suites which are perfect for a comfortable and restful night's sleep after an adventure-filled day!


Canopy Adventures

If you've ever imagined how monkeys have felt swinging from branches amidst the canopy of foliage, wonder no more. Canopy adventures offer those who dare, an incredible zip-lining adventure! You can expect to zip down and across forests from a whopping height of nearly 6,000 feet off the ground, at dizzying speeds of nearly 80 kilometres per hour! Whilst safety is the utmost concern of the management, children will have to be of a minimum height to partake in these and everyone will have to undergo some basic training and tips before they take to the air.


Samui Football Golf

As confusing as that may have been for some, it is exactly as the name suggests. It is a unique sport combining the skills of a footballer in the setting of a golf course. Like a game of golf, this course also has 18 holes. The idea is to kick the football into these 18 holes with both precision and speed. The course itself is beautiful and the game can be played in teams as well making it perfect for families.


Samui Aquarium and Tiger Zoo

Apart from all the thrills and adventure-related activities, Koh Samui has to offer, a day at the aquarium is a fantastic alternative for a laid-back afternoon. This is an especially suitable outing for families with young children. The Aquarium houses an incredible collection of marine animals and fish including the likes of leopard sharks, manta rays, jellyfish, turtles, and other endemic and endangered creatures. On the other hand, the zoo is particularly famous for its beautiful Bengal tigers. You can even catch lives shows and learn more about all these animals, making this choice the perfect blend of both fun and informative
