Koh Samui is perfectly liveable. A two-lane main road will bring you on a pleasant 50km drive around the island in less than 90mins – a blessing compared to the massive and dense traffic in Phuket. Koh Samui has a strict development regulation that no building be higher than a coconut tree. It allows the perfect escape from the city’s bustle and skyscrapers, into your peaceful seclusion anywhere anytime. Here you can find fantastic island hopping tours, local culture and sights, elephant sanctuary, waterfalls and viewpoints, Muay Thai, yoga, plenty of entertainment, and more. The best summer season to visit Koh Samui is between March to October, which differs from the islands in the Andaman Sea on the other side of the Thai mainland, where seasonality is the opposite.
