Koh Samui is the second largest island in Thailand and of course one of the best holiday destinations in the country. With its set of clean beaches, this destination is gaining recognition among tourists gradually, and quite constantly.
Best times to have plan your visit
Between the months of December and May is always the ideal time to visit Koh-Samui as the weather during this time is extremely pleasant with less or no rain at all. This is also the peak season for all Koh Samui villa resorts, so make sure you book your accommodation in advance- to get rid of any last time inconveniences.
The religions, the food habits, nightlife, and the monarchy do have a major role to play in terms of Koh Samui’s culture, and all of them contribute equally to making their culture a unique one. Their celebrations including the New Year also prove the fact that the culture you find is vibrant and colourful- just like the island.
