Top 5 Fun-Filled Things to do with Kids in Koh Samui – Thailand’s second-largest island

Planning a visit to Koh Samui with your family and little ones in tow? Here is a curated list of the top five fun-filled things to do with your kids during your holiday on one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand.


Visit the Ang Thong National Park or Koh Taen

While there are few notable islands, that you can boat around while in Samui, setting a full day aside for a fun tour of Ang Thong National Marine Park and possibly a half a day for Koh Taen. Chartering a private yacht for the tour is highly recommended as it gives your family the leeway to plan according to your time schedule. Usually, the boats depart from Choeng Mon Beach which can be easily reached from the best family resort in Koh Samui including the likes of Avani+ Samui Resort.


Zipline through the rainforest

If you love engaging in adrenaline-pumping activities in the great outdoors, then definitely don't miss out on the opportunity to see the beautiful rainforest that Koh Samui is famed for. The best part of the activity is that it's kid-friendly. Anyone over the age of seven can zipline. For kids under that age, riding in tandem with a parent or guardian is possible. The best place to enjoy a safe and fun experience would be Canopy Adventures


Ride the island's best water slides

Koh Samui is a tropical destination and it can get really hot and humid. So what better way to beat the heat, than making your way to the Pink Elephant Samui Water Park. Which is one of the island's top water parks guaranteed to thrill both the young and the old, with its thrilling, high-speed twisted slides. The park is open to the public from 10 am to 6 pm, all seven days a week. Do make sure to carry plenty of sunblock to protect your little ones from the harsh rays of the sun, and hydrate well to beat the tiring mid-day heat.


Go beach hopping much as possible

Koh Samui is renowned for its white sandy beach and turquoise-blue waters. No trip to Koh Samui is complete if you don't carve the time out to visit some of its best beaches. Some of the top ones that you should tick of the list include Lipa Noi Beach, Lamai Beach, Big Buddha Beach, Maenam Beach, Choeng Mon Beach, Bophut Beach, and finally the Chaweng Beach. There are plenty of reputed water sports centers on all of these beaches where you sign up for fun water sports such as jet-skiing, bodyboarding, snorkelling, and even diving.


Indulge in some sports

Some healthy competition can really bring a family together. Plan to go racing at the go-kart track located at Samui Easy Kart or choose to opt for a fun game of golf or hybrid football at Samui Football Golf. Do make sure to call and make bookings in advance to avoid any hassle. Most hotels and tour package operators will be more than happy to make the necessary arrangement if required.
