Enjoy The Ride Of Your Life Via Koh Samui Quad Bikes

Quad Biking is an exhilarating sport that can try in Koh Samui.

People have been coming up with innovative and creative ways to experience adrenaline-pumping activities that feed their adventurous side.Take this new escapade across streams, rocks, lots of mud, fruit plantations, up the mountains and hilly plains and winding streets in a quad bike. This is a truly amazingly one-of-a-kind Koh Samui travel experience that everyone should try.

ATVs or quad bikes are these machines which are actually 250cc motorbikes with four huge fat tyres. One look at them and you know you will travel Koh Samui like never before. There are several ways to experience this gorgeous Thai island. You could do it by foot and leisurely; be on top of an elephant and explore the jungles, plantations until you reach the top of the mountain for a breath taking view; ride a jeep with windows rolled down to enjoy the sights and sounds better; go boating and explore the pristine seas and the other fascinating islands; or yes, hop on that quad bike and experience something totally different.

Stay at the luxurious ShaSa Resort and they will make sure to arrange your quad biking adventure for you. Go quad biking at Mae Nam in Soi 1 where the quad biking experts and professionals are based. They will be the ones to guide you through the whole ride. Not everyone is qualified to drive the quad bikes however. Before you begin the journey, they allot time for you to be test your driving skills. If you make 3 mistakes in your test run, then you will be made a passenger along a professional quad driver. Kids are usually not allowed to drive the quad bike on their own.

If you want to travel Koh Samui via a quad bike, this will require a group leader to be followed in a convoy along different paths and courses. If you wish to be on a safer track then remain in the starting area where there are obstacle courses and other fun things to do. The bike is equipped with a first aid kit and help is only a call away.

Amazing paths as well as safety precautions are provided for that unforgettable KohSamui travel experience. This exploit is certainly for the bold and the daring who just love getting an adrenaline rush.

Turn Back the Hands of Time in Bophut

Change is good and all that, but sometimes, don’t you think it would be nice to go back in time to whne things were simpler. You can even teach your kids about how things used to be before in the past? In Koh Samui, most of the island’s fabled entertainment establishments have undergone a major makeover, giving the buildings a look that’s a far cry from their original appearance. Only the clear waters and powder-fine sand have retained any trace of the old Samui.

If you’re looking for a place that still retains most of its old-time charms and appearance, Bophut is the place to be. The place, unlike some of its contemporaries, has kept in touch with its roots. Take Fisherman’s Village, for instance. The place has kept its tradition of serving slow-cooked meals and relaxing beverages. Get your fix of Koh Samui seafood as well as international dishes, like Mexican, Italian, and Indian.

Head over to Alla Baia to satisfy your Italian craving and enjoy some good old pizza. Try something new like the mango burgers in Fifty-six Fusion, which are highly recommended by locals and tourists alike. For the ultimate seafood lover, My Friend whips up excellent seafood dishes without burning a hole in your pocket.

Late-night drinking is generally discouraged in Bophut. This is to keep up with the desire of the local officials to maintain Bophut’s laid-back and low-key reputation. Should you want to fill your night in Koh Samui with dancing and drinking, nearby Chaweng is the perfect venue.

This doesn’t mean that Bophut is without bars and clubs, though. They do have bars, like the Frog and Gecko, where you can drink your beverage of choice but without the noise and craziness common in most nightclubs. Note that the establishment gets crowded during Wednesdays, when the pub quiz, a weekly event, takes place.

Bophut, just like most of Thailand, is home to impressive beaches. If you’re out for some quiet reflection in Koh Samui, make a beeline for the Bophut beaches. It’s rare to hear the drone of Jet Ski engines in this part of the island, which is a very seldom crowded and loud.

With changes of all sorts occurring every second, it’s nice to know there’s always Bophut, where you can always go to when you feel like going back in time. 

Let us know what or where in Koh Samui you would like to learn about, so this ultimate Koh Samui blog and can help.

The strong and refreshing sea breezes do more than make people feel cooler and more invigorated. It also provides the perfect reason to fly kites and in some cases, board them.

Among Koh Samui attractions, kiteboarding attracts many people because it is safe and is a great way to relieve stress and enjoy life. It is also a great bonding activity among friends and family members. The good thing about kiteboarding in Samui is the fact that you get to enjoy the beauty of the outdoors while getting in touch with a lot of different people, while enjoying a fantastic view of the island.

It is a great sport for the adventurous and after you try it once, don’t be surprised if you get addicted to it. The west coast of Thailand is generally considered to be the country’s kiteboarding hub because of its ideal climate and strong winds which is ideal for the sport. Kiteboarding is liberating and challenging for those who are looking for something different to try. Because it is now one of the most famous Koh Samui attractions, more and more people want to be a part of it. However, don’t be fooled thinking that it’s easy. This sport requires you to be physically fit and to be able to control the force exerted by the kite. It’s great for those who are craving for some strenuous activity. In that area, kiteboarding will never disappoint. It will surely be an exhilarating experience that will be very difficult to forget.

For those who are interested to take part in this water activity yet are hesitant due to lack of experience, there are plenty of schools that are offering kite-boarding courses. No matter how active or not-so active you are, the experts will take you on a step by step prep guide so that you’ll be more than ready when you step on the board. Koh Samui attractions are definitely fun. Kiteboarding is no exception.

The ShaSa resort will be able to help you find discounted snorkeling and scuba diving tours for you to go on while you in Koh Samui. Unfortunately, if you have never scuba dived before you will need to take some classes and get trained otherwise you won’t be able to go scuba diving anywhere in Thailand or other parts of the world. This is the predominant reason why the majority of people who go to Koh Samui will choose to go snorkeling instead of scuba diving.

If you decide to go on a Koh Samui adventure tour either scuba diving or snorkelling you won’t be disappointed. The captains of the boat know all the best spots for you to go to. Some of the most popular full day snorkeling sites are in Koh Tao and Nang Yang via a speedboat. The sandbar beaches here will absolutely take your breath away.
