Activities

Scuba Diving & Snorkelling Koh Samui’s clear waters are not the best but snorkelling and diving are still popular at Angthong Marine National Park. The dive boats tend to leave from the pier at Bophut

 

Sea Kayaking With a coastline composed of mangroves, limestone, small coves, caves and islands, and an interior with rivers lined with cave systems, Koh Samui provides a popular environment for kayaking.

 

Bird Watching Samui’s pristine forests are decent for bird watching. The areas are a nesting ground for several rare species of birds.

 

Sailing Yachting & Cruising All types of boating have soared in popularity in Samui over the past decade. This is probably the result of the success of the Koh Samui Regatta and day cruises and sunset cruises aboard large catamaran Kia Ora. The only problem with sailing however, in Koh Samui, is that there is not much in the way of safe mooring, good support infrastructure and services.

 

Fishing Fishers catch the likes of marlin, sailfish barracuda and tuna. Most the fishing tours leave from the south-west corner of Koh Tong Krut.

 

Trekking & Elephant Trekking Due to diversity of the landscape and tropically lush forests, Samui is a great place for trekking, either on foot or by elephant

 

Snooker & Pool There are snooker clubs at the main beaches in Thailand and they are popular with the local Thais. More popular with the western tourists is pool which can easily be found at the island’s bars. At most bars, pool can be played for free.

 

Spa For those who love to ‘spa’, Thailand is the perfect destination to indulge in this pastime therapy. The country prides itself in countless spas offering the highest world class services at extremely reasonable rates. Much of the recent success of this therapy is due to the tremendous support given by the Thai Spa Operators Association. Not only have they helped in the training of therapists to international standards but also trained them in keeping methods traditionally and distinctively ‘Thai-style’. Spas can be found at major hotels and resorts on Koh Samui.
