5 Fun-Filled Activities to do in Koh Samui - Treat Yourself to an Exciting Tropical Island Experience

With scenic jungle-backed beaches, attractive waterfalls, and splendid offshore islands, Koh Samui is undoubtedly one of Asia's most loved vacation destinations. From thrill-seeking adrenaline junkies to families with kids and couples looking for some romantic time away, Koh Samui has something for everyone.


Take a day trip to Ang Thong National Marine Park

Located just a short boat ride away from Koh Samui, Ang Thong National Marine Park is a stunning archipelago of 42 islands. Taking a day trip to this picturesque park is a must-do for anyone who visits Koh Samui, as a single full-day tour allows you to indulge yourself in a plethora of activities. Some of the most common activities include kayaking in hidden coves, island hopping, hiking to viewpoints, and swimming in sparkling blue lakes.


Explore the world underwater by going snorkelling and scuba diving

The warm and clear, sparkling blue waters, along with the colourful exotic marine life, make snorkelling and scuba diving just too good to pass up. You don't have to be experienced in either sport as there are plenty of diving centres around the island that offer training sessions so that you can enjoy the treasures of the world underwater. If you are serious about diving, hop over to Koh Tao, the diving mecca of Thailand. However, it will take quite a long boat ride to get to Koh Tao from Koh Samui.


Spend an entire day on the pristine beaches of Koh Samui

The stunning, palm-fringed beaches of Koh Samui are one of the most crucial elements that make it a popular tourist hotspot in Asia as well as throughout the world. Therefore it's no surprise that beach time will be a huge part of your holiday. From taking an early morning stroll along the coast to fishing and playing some sunset beach tennis, there's so much to enjoy on the beaches of Koh Samui.

If you are planning on staying at a beachfront resort in Koh Samui, consider a Chaweng hotel, perhaps something like Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort. Chaweng beach is possibly the most picturesque of all beaches and is the main hub for nightlife, making it an ideal spot for your stay in Koh Samui.


Trek to see some waterfalls

While you could spend days on the pristine, white sandy beaches of Koh Samui, it is also worthy of visiting some of its scenic waterfalls. It's not the waterfalls themselves that are fascinating but also the trek that leads to them. If you are an adventurer who would love to trek through tropical forests and discover beautiful waterfalls, this is something you should definitely try out.


Go on a sunset stand-up paddle tour

Why limit yourself to enjoying the sunset only on the beach when you can do it while paddling along the waters of the Gulf of Thailand? If you give it a try, you will realize that it is, without a doubt, the best way to soak up the tranquil and gorgeous sunset.
