Where can you take your family to have fun in Samui? - A family affair

Are you in Koh Samui with your family? Here are some super fun activities to keep yourselves occupied and make memories to last a lifetime!


Learn to cook

Thai cuisine is one of a kind, with a mix of flavours that will leave you wanting more and more. A fun way to learn all about Thai cuisine, its elements and how popular dishes are cooked is to attend a cooking class! The best way to do this would be with your kids! Most cooking studios allow kids aged 12 and above, but some venues also offer lessons for kids. You can also learn the art of cooking this cuisine in a manner that is traditional and right, to cook when you head back home.


Samui's walking streets

The best part about Koh Samui is the many fun events that are held at numerous locations all across the island. When you explore these streets, you can also visit the many food stalls and vendors. This offers a great family experience and is a great way to look into the local culture and life of the locals living on the island. A few of the popular walking streets are Fisherman's Village Walking Street, Chaweng Walking Street, Mae Nam Walking Street and Nathon Walking Street.


Ride a zipline

After a few days of relaxing and taking in the comfort offered by your Koh Samui Resort, the likes of Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort, you can take your little ones on an adventure! You can spend the day at Canopy Adventures Secret Falls where you can try out cable or ziplines located high in the trees. Make sure you take your swimming suits with you, as you can also enjoy a quick dip in the waterfall plunge pool. If you want some more zip-lining adventures, Skyhawk Adventure Zipline Koh Samui also offers many rides! This is located amidst the lush forests, so you get incomparable views.


Stunning waterfalls

For families that enjoy all things nature-related, visiting the wonderful waterfalls such as Na Muang Falls and Hin Lad waterfalls is a must! Hin Lad Waterfall is known to be more child-friendly, so if you're going with younger kids, this is the safer and better option to consider. Right before leading up to the waterfall, there is a monastery with manicured lawns and statues worth visiting.


Temples and religious attractions

Koh Samui has an unending list of fascinating temples and cultural attractions to visit. The 12 metre Golden Buddha statue is a landmark attraction called Big Buddha and has to be on your list. Wat Plai Laem, Secret Buddha Garden and Dusit Dhewa are also insightful locations to visit. Wat Plai Laem is known to be excellent for photo-taking opportunities and boasts a temple which comprises Chinese and Thai elements, both. The best part however is that it's located just 5 minutes away from Big Buddha, giving you the ease of convenience!
