Wanderlust: Koh Samui

Post written in collaboration with  a brand, all words and opinions are my own.
Thailand is very high on my list of places to visit, I think I first fell in love with it when I read ‘The Beach’ but it looks like such a beautiful country with so many areas to explore. Koh Samui is definitely an area I would love to explore,  and today I’m sharing a few things I’d  do if we are lucky enough to visit!
Although there are a lot of great hotels I think as a family staying in our own Koh Samui villa would be best so that we can come and go as we please, have some privacy and eat out at as many places as possible!

 Hinta Hinyai

Known as  ‘Grandfather and Grandmother Rocks’ these gigantic rock formations  have naturally occured over many thousands of years. They are close to Lamai Beach and a hugely popular in tourist photos but the beaches around them are worth a visit alone!

Chaweng Beach

Chaweng is the longest beach on Koh Samui.  With  Hotels, Restaurants and more along the beach with fire shows in the evening too which I think we would all find entertaining to watch .

Big Buddha Koh Samui

Big Buddha

One of Koh Samui’s main  attractions this major landmark is easily spotted,   a shining 12 meter-high golden Buddha. Around the temple you can see the beautiful view and sunset, If you’re hungry, don’t worry, there will be a multiple restaurant inside the temple for you to choose same with a souvenir shop.

Fisherman’s village, Bophut

Street food, interesting things to  buy like locally made souvenirs and gifts and a bustling atmosphere . This is a  a historical part of the island and buildings are  rustic, lending an air of mystery to the village. Lots of the restaurants  have open terraces opening on to the beach front too, perfect for sunset drinks.

Na Muang Waterfall

Surrounded by lush green jungle the Na Muang waterfall is  in such a stunning location, with  the opportunity walk through the flora and fauna to reach it. It’s the largest waterfall here, and is in the Na Muang Safari park which has a zoo, aquarium and more too – a full day out.

There is of course a lot more to do on Koh Samui,  and I really hope we get to visit one day! Have you been?
