Paintball Shootout Fun in Koh Samui

Whoever invented paintball certainly is a genius and fortunately, this exhilarating activity is one of the coolest things to do in Koh Samui. The great thing about playing paintball at Koh Samui is the fact that it is set in a real jungle, in the greener portions of the island. Thus, it is definitely more thrilling than a paintball site that is indoors somewhere. The players get a feel of an actual war game while they are outside in the jungle and running for their lives. It would most certainly bring out the adventurous side of everybody.

The game of paintball is an exciting and interesting concept that requires a lot of tactics, aim, physical endurance and of course a great sense of fun. It is one of the most exciting things to do in Koh Samui that can be enjoyed with your family and friends. It’s a game of outwitting and outlasting your opponents with all the elements of fun written all over it. Staying at ShaSa Resort certainly has luxurious benefits and one of them is not having to worry about a pre-arranged paintball session with pick-ups and drop offs to your hotel and a prepared agenda.

Before getting into action, it is essential to be properly prepared. The right gear will include masks, gloves and all the necessary protection for the game that awaits, this gear can be rented but it will save you money to bring your gear. You would not want to get dehydrated in the middle of an on-going fight so never forget to bring water. Your gun and bullets will be provided for you along with instructions on how to use it.

There are so many things to do in Koh Samui but paintballing is definitely worth a half-day trip. The game is between two teams with an equal number of players and the main aim is to capture the opponent team’s flag. A player who is hit in any part of his body by a paintball is automatically disqualified and is out of the game. The firing range is sent to be more than 5 metres away. If you are less than 5 metres away, shout “You’re dead!” instead of shooting, because getting hit at this distance will truly leave a mark and cause immense pain. Each game lasts for 10 minutes with 3-minute intervals. If no player is able to capture the flag, then the game is declared a draw.

If you find yourself booking that trip to Thailand, don’t forget to include paintball as one of the things to do in Koh Samui aside from getting that bronze tan and experiencing that lovely authentic Thai massage.
