Koh Samui is located in the Gulf of Thailand (bordering the South China Sea in the Pacific Ocean). The island is a "Amphoe" or district in the Surat Thani Changwat or province. Samui is divided into seven "Tambon" or sub districts (administrative regions): Maenam, Bophut, Maret, Taling Ngam, Namuang, Lipa Noi and Angthong. Koh Samui has been a backpackers destination since late 70's. Today, tourist from the whole world go to this easygoing "paradise". It is surrounded by more than sixty other island.This mid-sized island has everything you would expect from any tourist destination.
What sets Koh Samui apart from the rest is the blended charms of Samui’s nightlife, We can recommend; Green Mango (on Soi Green Mango next to Chaweng Bach Road), Reggae Pub (on Chaweng beach) and Bauhaus, Super Sub (on Lamai beach) There are also smaller pubs and bars all over the island. natural attractions and of course its beaches and clear waters. There is an abundance of attractions packed on this island. From waterfalls and cliffs to zoo and temples, there are lots to do in Samui.
Access to the island is also easy. You can get to Samui by air or by sea and the roads on the island far exceeds the standards found on most islands in Thailand.
The world-renown beaches and crystal clear waters of Samui is clearly the main attraction, but that is not all; the nightlife here rivals that of its sister island, Pha-ngan.
