Mini Guide for Koh Samui Chaweng

The third largest island in Thailand after Phuket and Koh Chang, Koh Samui is located in the Gulf of Thailand about 700km south of Bangkok. White sandy beaches, lush tropical gardens, gentle ocean breezes, all await you there on this idyllic island.

If you want to explore the island on your own the best way is to hire a car. There is not a great deal of history there, but you will find Wat Phra Yai which is also known as the “Big Buddha” which is located on a small island connected to Koh Samui by a bridge. 

Chaweng Beach is the closest to Koh Samui International Airport but it’s still worth hiring a car as the beach is seven kilometres long and has different aspects.
