The island of Ko Samui is known and loved by people from all over the world. Its great combination of Thai hospitality, white sandy beaches and tropical climate, make it a world class destination.
Arrival on Ko Samui
We can arrange reservations and tickets for the overnight sleeper train from Bangkok to Surat Thani, followed by a ferry over to Ko Samui. The boat trip takes approximately 2Â½ hours. On the way, you will pass the neighbouring islands of Ko Tao and Ko Pha Ngan. It is also possible to visit these islands before settling down for a few days in Ko Samui. Just let us know and we can add this to your itinerary.
There are also direct flights from Bangkok and Chiang Mai to Ko Samui, leaving several times a day. The airport on Samui is an attraction in itself - with offices under thatched bamboo huts and luggage conveyor belts surrounded by tropical gardens. This is certain to plunge you headfirst into the holiday island mood.
Ko Samui You will stay on Lamai beach, just below Chaweng beach, which is the largest resort on the island. Lamai lies on the east coast of the island and the hotels here are smaller and far more personal. Your accommodation will be right on the beach with a swimming pool and air conditioning. In the evening, you can choose one of the candlelit restaurants on the beach. If you are looking for complete beach-isolation, you can head for the north side of the island to the quiet beaches of Bophut and Maenam. Let us know if you would rather stay on one of these beaches instead, or if you would like more luxurious accommodation. We have plenty of options available. Shop your heart out, take a dip in the pool, stroll along the beach, or just laze under a parasol with a good book, your iPod and a fruit shake. Perfect.
Ko Samui If you start feeling restless on the beach, you can take an excursion, or hire a moped to explore the interior of the island. Behind the beaches, Ko Samui is draped in lush green vegetation and countless coconut palm plantations. There are shimmering waterfalls at Na Muang and a temple at Laem Saw. Snorkellers and divers can take advantage of the nearby Ang Thong Marine Park - 18 protected islands in a nature reserve with incredible underwater life. Here you swim in crystal clear waters over and between coral reefs, full of sea anemones, sponges and tropical fish. We can arrange for a fantastic day trip to this Marine park to be added to your itinerary, just ask.
Departure from Ko Samui
If you're ending your Thailand journey on Ko Samui, you can take the ferry and overnight sleeper train back to Bangkok. Alternatively, we can book you a flight, which will connect as closely as possible to your international flight home.
On the other hand, after relaxing on Ko Samui you might like to try some diving in the Gulf of Thailand, then head for Ko Tao, otherwise known as Turtle Island. For further beach options, we can arrange for you to travel to the other side of the mainland to Krabi or Phuket. From these destinations you will find good connections on to the islands and beaches of the west coast and Andaman sea.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
