La Vida Resort Samui

Koh Samui is a gem in the midst of Thailand. Located on the east coast of the country, this island is the third-largest island, next to Phuket and Ko Chang. As part of the Surat Thani province in the Chumphon Archipelago, this place has much to offer during your trip.

For the most part, solo travelers, families, and couples would love to visit the place for its amazing beaches filled with white sand, blue seawater, fascinating coral reefs, and swaying palm trees!

If you are up to go beyond the beach and take your Koh Samui trip to a whole new level of experience, however, here are five awesome activities to do:

1. Visit the market for souvenirs and snacks

Visiting the markets in Koh Samui can be such a different experience. Why? There is a wide range of shops where you can get unique souvenirs and stalls for mouth-watering street food! Know that the Chaweng’s main street has a permanent market during the day, so you can drop by for a visit. In the evening, take a stroll in the walking street to catch the weekly night market in front of the Central Festival.

2. Enjoy fun-filled water activities

When it comes to Koh Samui, you might be thinking about sitting on the white sand, basking under the scorching heat of the sun, or swimming in the crystal clear water. However, you can veer away from the usual and take your experience to the next level by enjoying some fun-filled activities and breathtaking excursions in Koh Samui! Consider activities, such as jet-skiing, snorkeling, kayaking, and even diving.

3. Have a weekend brunch

If you’re up to unwind and relax, why not have a weekend brunch with your family or special someone? Nikki Beach Club is your best bet, which is popular for its Sunday brunch delicacies. Here, you can have some gastronomical treat with your family or friends and enjoy a buffet with champagne and good music. For a weekend relaxing time, do lounge around the whole day and swim in the pool to cool down from the heat!

4. Enjoy refreshing in waterfalls

When in Koh Samui, the best way to enjoy more of what the place has to offer is by heading inland to explore the waterfalls! There are a few falls near Lamai in Koh Samui, where you can try Na Muang Waterfall near the Safari Park. While looking forward to seeing the waterfalls, you can also take time to enjoy the scenic views while driving on your way to the site. Once you reach the place, don’t forget to swim to indulge in your waterfall experience fully.

5. Have a party till dawn

Your beach experience in Koh Samui can definitely be enhanced by parties, which is why you must make sure to explore the nightlife on the island. Chaweng is one of the best places for partying with numerous beach-front restaurants, bars, and nightclubs that you can hop from one spot to another, from the evening until the early morning. This can give you a crazy yet worthwhile experience!
