Planning a holiday to Koh Samui, one of Thailand’s lush tropical islands, is an exciting task and choosing the perfect place to stay is a large part of it. Whether you’re looking for a 5-star luxury resort, affordable beach hotel, or a secluded jungle hideaway, Koh Samui has plenty of beautiful accommodations from which to choose. With so many options, it can be an overwhelming search. To help you get started, I’ve curated a list of highly-rated Samui accommodations, with a few options for every budget.
When you think of Koh Samui, you most likely picture tropical beaches or sipping a Mai Tai by the pool at a fancy resort. And while Samui is a great place to indulge in those things, if you head inland to the lush jungle, you can also discover many beautiful waterfalls. In this article, I’ll show you how to get to the 4 incredible waterfalls we visited on our last trip to Koh Samui.
After our recent trip through northern Thailand and Laos, I created this detailed two-week adventure itinerary to help you explore this region’s possibilities. I hope you’ll use it as a guide as you plan your next trip!
Not only is traveling from Chiang Rai to Houayxay (or Huay Xai), Laos fairly easy, it can also be incredibly cheap. Using a combination of tuk tuk, local bus, and songthaew, you can complete this trip for around US $10!
Bangkok has a special place in my heart and lures me back to visit frequently. As a first-time visitor though, planning an itinerary in Bangkok can be overwhelming. It’s a huge city filled with temples, markets, malls, and so much delicious food!
