Ko Samui

Located off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus in Thailand, KoSamui is an island city and though it is less crowded compared to other islands, it is still one of its most popular holiday destinations of the country. With a population of over 63,000 and an area of 228.7 km2, it is Thailand's second-largest island after Phuket. KoSamui was a remote self-sufficient community until the late-20th century,having very limited connection with the rest of Thailand. Even till the early 1970’s the island had no roads and the 15 kilometer journey from one side of the island to the other would take about an entire day’s trek through the mountainous central jungles.

Covered mostly with tropical jungle, the central part of KoSamui includes its highest mountain, KhaoPom with a height of 635 meters. The island is mainly connected by roads and Route 4169 encircles the entire island running at the length of 51 kilometer. Various lowland and coastal areas are connected by the service roads branching off from Route 4169.

The island has abundant shopping destination, authentic and continental dining and an exciting nightlife with plenty of beach clubs. The uniqueness of the island can be seen in the fact that in spite of being traditional it keeps accommodating modern lifestyle and culture to evolve. The unique culture of KoSamui is influenced by the islands religion, the monarchy, food and nightlife, all this blending together while upholding the authentic culture is what sets it apart. Various festivals are celebrated with great enthusiasm and are given great importance on the island.
