If you're looking for a vacation spot with a little bit of everything,
Koh Samui should be your port of call! This Thai island lies off the east
of the Kra Isthmus and as Thailand's third largest island, it has enough
to do to entertain even the most discerning tourist. With plenty of
beach-front resorts that will have you living just meters away from the
water, let this island show you some of the best of what Thailand has to
offer.

If you re a nature lover, be sure to take advantage of the many day trips
into mountainous jungle interior of the island. Keep an eye out for the
waterfalls, especially for Na Muang and Na Muang II. The former is 18
meters high while the later stretches up a dizzying 80 meters. While the
former can be accessed by vehicle, the later can only be reached via a 30
minute walk. If possible, see both of these natural wonders during your
stay. If you are interested in some of the wildlife of Thailand, Koh
Samui has a crocodile farm, a monkey theater, a butterfly garden and an
renowned aquarium, and that's just for starters!

When you're tired of the wildlife, check out the nightlife! Koh Samui
boasts many bars, discos and cabaret shows, especially in Lamai and
Chaweng. Check out the Raggae Pub and the Bauhaus for dancing that can
last until dawn. For live music, head down to the Beach Pub at Secret
Garden. This stretch of beach has become an international gathering place
for professional and semiprofessional musicians, and live sessions take
place every Saturday afternoon, attracting large crowds of people, all
ready for a party!

One of the best reasons to make Koh Samui your vacation destination is
the water; the waters of this beautiful island are crystal clear, making
for some of the snorkeling and scuba diving in the world. If you've never
gone scuba diving before, there's not time to start like the present;
you'll find plenty of schools scattered along the coastline that are
willing to teach you.

If you ave an interest in physical sports, come to Koh Samui to take a
look at the the Thai martial art, Muay Thai boxing. This martial art has
become the known all over the world for it's intensely fast action and
close combat fighting style; in Koh Samui, you can see matches that will
show you what this form of boxing is truly capable of. Chaweng Stadium
holds matches every Monday and Friday, while you can see fights every
Saturday at the Lamai stadium.

To see what life may have been like more than a century a go, be sure to
visit Koh Samui's oldest standing house in Ban Thale. This structure was
made out of teakwood without the use of any nails. Constructed of teak
planks and adorned to with traditional Thai woodcarvings, this house can
show you some of the decorative motifs and styles that can still be seen
in Thai design today.

Koh Samui has a lot to offer, so make sure that you plan a vacation there
soon. Between the tranquil beaches and the lively bar scene, there really
is something for everyone!
