10 Essentials to Pack for your Honeymoon in Koh Samui - For an Exciting Time in the Tropical Islands of Thailand

If you are planning to spend your honeymoon in Koh Samui, you've made the right choice by choosing one of the best places on earth to celebrate your love for each other. To ensure that things stay all lovey-dovey, there's a couple of things that you need to take with you when you are heading to Koh Samui.


Clothing - loose and lightweight

The glaring sun and blazing hot temperatures of Koh Samui won't take you long to realize that loose and lightweight clothes are your friends. Since you don't want to take your entire wardrobe with you, it's better to follow the "6 tops and 3 bottoms" rule when packing.


Footwear - sandals and flip flops

You can leave your boots and high heels back at home as sandals and flip-flops rule Koh Samui. They are the convenient choice for you as they are easy to take off and put on, which will come in handy, as you will spend most of your time hanging out on the beach and in and out of pools.


Sun protection - floppy hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen

If there's one thing that Koh Samui will never run short of, it would be its dazzling sunshine. Even if you have some kind of 'tanning goals' in your mind, you would still need some sun protection from the burning rays. Therefore make sure to pack some floppy hats, sunglasses, and a whole lot of sunscreen.


Mosquito repellent - to avoid crazy itching

Mosquito repellents are a must-have on your trip to Koh Samui unless you want to spend your entire honeymoon scratching yourself. Anyone who has been to Koh Samui, or for that matter, any wildly tropical place, would say that mosquito repellents are even more important than bringing clothes.


A quality backpack - say no to suitcases

If you are choosing Koh Samui as your honeymoon destination, a backpack will be the ideal choice rather than a bulky suitcase. Unless you already know, it will take a couple of flights, taxi or minibus rides, and definitely a few ferries to get to your resort in Koh Samui. So imagine hopping from one to another while carrying a heavy suitcase.


Swimming costumes - for the pool and sea

When you visit Koh Samui for your honeymoon, you will spend most of your time in pools and the turquoise blue waters surrounding the island. Therefore you mustn't pack one, but at least two swimming costumes as drying clothes will take longer than you expect given the moist air.


Comfy cotton underwear - to breathe easy

Lacy lingerie plays a huge role in any honeymoon, but you may want to add a couple of comfortable undies as well if you are spending your honeymoon in Koh Samui. Lacy lingerie will undoubtedly make you shine during your intimate moments, but underwear that can breathe will be your friend when traipsing around this tropical island.


Rain gear - better safe than sorry

Rain is the last thing you'd want to wish for on your honeymoon, but throwing in a rain jacket and umbrella won't hurt. While Koh Samui is well known for its (almost) year-round sunshine, it does have a rainy season just like any other tropical place and can get rough at times.


Beach bag and towel - the beach essentials

The white sandy beaches will be a huge part of your honeymoon, especially if you are staying at a beachfront Koh Samui 5 star resort, similar to the likes of Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort. Therefore a beach bag and a somewhat bigger towel can come in handy when hanging out on the beach.


A camera, batteries and enough memory cards - happy memories

Last but not least, Koh Samui offers some magnificent sights that make for some memorable captures of your honeymoon. Make sure to pack enough batteries and memory cards along with your camera so that you can get some great snaps that you can cherish for a lifetime.
