Koh Samui Holidays Overview

 

The world famous Thai beach resort Koh Samui is located on an island known as Samui which is situated off the eastern coast of the Kra Isthmus in Thailand.Koh Samui is the third largest island in Thailand which is today home to approximately 50,000 people. The island is world renowned for its many wide sand beaches which are enveloped by coral reefs and littered with numerous coconut trees.
 
It is believed that the island of Koh Samui was settled nearly 15 centuries ago by fishermen from Malaysia and Southern China. In fact the island was marked as the island of Pulo Cornam on ancient Chinese maps. However this island-community was largely isolated until the late 1970ís as it didnít have much connection with mainland Thailand. Koh Samui only came into prominence in 1971 after two tourists from Bangkok arrived on its shores in a coconut boat and discovered its many hidden delights which took the form of virgin beaches and sparkling seas which were surrounded by lush green vegetation and simple wooden homes.
 
Ever since this time, tourism in Koh Samui has grown in leaps and bounds and today this picturesque island is firmly entrenched on the global tourist map.
 
Tourism is today the main revenue earner for this island of Koh Samui which is now populated with several beach resorts, hotels, bars and restaurants that aim to cater to the hordes of tourists that arrive on the island each year to avail of its various hedonistic delights.
 
The best time to visit Koh Samui is during its hot and dry season which normally extends from February to late June. During this peak season time hotel room prices on Koh Samui tend to soar. The island also experiences a monsoon season which generally extends from July to October during which the island is largely deserted as the tourists tend to stay away.
