Koh Samui Guide

Koh Samui Ferry Port

Koh Samui is the third largest island belonging to Thailand, laying off the coast of Thailand’s mainland. The port lays on the southwest coast of the island with the town centre within a 10-15 minute walk from the landing pier; for those not wishing to travel on foot there is also a taxi rank directly outside the port. Away from the port, the easiest and cheapest way to get around the island is by songthaew (a covered pick-up truck type vehicle that serves as a local bus) which are seen frequently and can be flagged down from the side of the road. The majority of the population live in the town surrounding the port, Nathorn, though the major sights are found scattered around the island. Because 90% of the island is buddhist, one of the main attractions is the Big Buddha, a giant statue that can be seen by walking up many stairs. It is worthwhile noting that visitors are required to remove their shoes if they are to witness the statue up close. Aside from the Big Buddha, Koh Samui has copious beaches on offer – the most popular is Chaweng Beach which has plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops to enjoy. The island is notorious for being the most upmarket in Thailand, transforming its clientele from backpackers on a budget to middle class Europeans and North Americans. To escape the tourist focused areas, the south of the island offers a totally different landscape; Samui family-run restaurants are hidden among long stretches of coconut palms and dusty roads. Ferry routes run relatively frequently from the port to the neighbouring islands as well as the Thailand mainland; the crossings are all fairly short and comfortable making it a stress free sailing.
