The thought of spending the holiday in a tropical island with white sandy beaches and surrounded with turquoise waters should already make you giddy. It is the time to relax and momentarily escape the hustle and bustle and stress of your 9 to 5 job. It’s important to recharge and come back to the real world of deadlines and chaos calm and refreshed.

Spending your much-awaited island holiday getaway in Koh Samui is a perfect choice. It is worth all your hard-earned cash. There are several Koh Samui attractions to choose from. It all depends on your budget and personal interests. Kayaking at Ang Thong National Maritime Park is one of the most exciting Koh Samui attractions that every visitor should try. It is a challenge but the fun that goes with it is priceless.

Ang Thong National Maritime Park is a stunning archipelago with more than 40 islands located northwest of Koh Samui. The marine park is truly one of the major Koh Samui attractions.  It is a protected area with rich flora and fauna, beautiful limestone islands, karst formations, caves, hidden lagoons and white sandy beaches. These islands of various shapes and sizes are mostly close to each other creating a stunning view.  All of them are uninhabited and undeveloped except Koh Palauy, which is inhabited by sea gypsies.

There are several tour operators offering tour packages from Koh Samui to Ang Thong. Be sure that they are licensed carriers. These tours depart daily from Koh Samui to the marine park. You can choose to ride a ferry and be with a larger group of around 40 people or ride a speedboat with a smaller group. Prices will definitely vary but if money is not a problem, your family and friends can do a private tour. It is more costly but at least you have more privacy. The tour usually includes pick-up from your hotel, light breakfast, speedboat transfer to the marine park, snorkelling, hiking, visiting both touristy and deserted areas and kayaking.

Kayaking is the best way to explore hidden natural Koh Samui attractions at Ang Thong National Maritime National Park. The start of the kayak trip is along the coastline of Koh Mae Koh, then passing beautiful white beaches and cruise further into some interesting rock formations, caves and hidden lagoons. These Koh Samui attractions are simply breathtaking.

Exploring Koh Samui

Get the most out of your Koh Samui adventure by staying at the ShaSa Resort. 

            When visiting a beautiful place like Koh Samui, it’s best to stay in a resort that has everything you can ask for, like the ShaSa Resort. With the numerous things that you can do in Koh Samui, it would be terribly hard and inconvenient for you to contact so many different people to look for what to do, arrange the necessary transportation, and even looking for the best places to eat. Rest assured! ShaSa Resort is the best place for you if you seek total relaxation as well as an adventure to remember. ShaSa Resort can arrange different tours and activities that will showcase what Koh Samui has to offer, keeping in mind your personal interests as well. They can help you when it comes to exploring Koh Samui.
Koh Samui is an island that’s very rich in natural resources. One of the things that tourists go to in the island is the white sand beach with a diverse marine wildlife found underwater. However, beaches are not the only sights to see. The culture in Koh Samui is very palpable and is especially seen in the numerous temples on the island. Aside from this, if you want to see the lush greenery, Elephant Trekking is the thing to do. Here you can see the island’s jungle while riding on an elephant’s back. At the end of the action-packed day, fret not as there are a lot of excellent and comfortable accommodations, such as ShaSa Resort, that will pamper you and make sure you get a good night’s sleep.

            To be able to maximize your beach experience to the fullest, it’s best to choose a resort located on the beach, just like ShaSa Resort, so you can walk on the white sand or watch the waves crash whenever you please. Whether you’re into having fun in the sun or taking a moonlit stroll on the beach with your partner, as long as you stay in a resort located on a beach, anything is possible. Kayaking and other water sports can be done as well, and in places like ShaSa Resort, they offer these amenities.

            Just like in the other islands of Thailand, sightseeing is great to do in Koh Samui. Most of the sights that you will see in Koh Samui are related, in one way or another, to Buddha. This, along with the prevalence of temples, shows the culture of Thais: they’re very religious and spiritual. Although seeing the sights can be very exciting, it can often get tiring too, especially if you have to hop from one place to another and constantly look for transportation that will take you around. Luckily, resorts like ShaSa Resort can take care of these kinds of things for you so you can see and enjoy the sights without being frazzled.

            Stress-free yet adventurous vacations are a reality if you choose the right resorts to stay in, such as ShaSa Resort. If you want to enjoy your Koh Samui vacation, be sure to stay in a resort that’s not only beautiful and well maintained, but one that will allow you to experience the wonderful beaches and will arrange for other things you’d like to see and do. Exploring Koh Samui is bound to be a great experience but it will also leave you needing to rest for the next day’s adventures. After all the exploring and sightseeing in Koh Samui, it’s best to return to a resort that’s peaceful and luxurious and ShaSa Resort is one of these. With proper rest and relaxation, you’ll be more able to explore the beautiful island of Koh Samui and have a vacation of a lifetime.
