Located in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui is a tourist hotspot, even so much so that it is the only TEFL Heaven island that actually boasts an airport! It’s actually Thailand’s third largest island measuring some 25 kilometres long and 21 kilometres wide, and with some 50 kilometres of coastal roads this means that you get easy access to a vast variety of beaches and bays that encompass many bars and restaurants. You will also have a big choice of massage parlours and spas, internet cafe’s, waterfalls and temples to visit.
Because the island is a popular one among tourists, that also means you get a lot better deals because businesses are competing with each other to get your hard earned cash! This also means that if you don’t watch your spending, you can easily spend a lot of money on more luxurious meals.
There are plenty of peaceful areas to chill out and relax, or areas to get down and party. Whatever your persuasion, Koh Samui has it all!
