Public buses operate from a small bus station and private taxis are available throughout the island, (though they have no meters and can be expensive). Several ferries connect the island with the mainland. A ring road loops around the island’s lush interior, linking beaches and local attractions.
Much of the southern cuisine of Thailand is a hybrid of very spicy food with its roots in Malay, Indonesian and Indian food. Some favoured restaurants on Koh Samui are Spirit House in Chaweng, H Bistro and Le Cabanon, for some of the Samui experience of culinary delights.
Our Koh Samui accommodation is a stunning luxurious villa in the heart of the island only a few minute to the main beach at Chaweng.
