Koh Samui – Holiday Destination Information

Key Information: Koh Samui, also commonly referred to as ‘Ko Samui’, is one of Thailand’s largest islands. It is renowned for its dense rainforest areas, beautiful beaches, luxurious holiday resorts and very lively nightlife.

Ideal Time to Go: For the cheapest Koh Samui holiday, you’d have to book to travel in October/November. These months are the rainiest, so you’d be sacrificing weather for cheapness. For a better mix of cheapness and weather, April-June is a good period to book your holiday as the weather will be decent, and so will the price. December, January, July & August are high season months - they have amazing beach weather and plenty going on, but a holiday during these months won’t be nearly as cheap and will see much larger crowds of holiday-goers.

Weather: Koh Samui has a very warm climate with an average annual temperature of 28°C. The temperature in Koh Samui is very consistent and stays around the 28°C mark all year round. The rainfall isn’t so consistent however; the rainiest month is November with an average of 430mm of rainfall over 15 days. Other months have around 100mm of rainfall over 5-10 days per month.

Flight Time: Indirect flights from London to Koh Samui take 13-17 hours

Time Difference: Koh Samui is 6 hours ahead of UK time

Currency: Thai Baht (THB)

Fun Fact: Koh Samui used to have the nickname “Island of the Coconuts and Monkeys”.

Top Tip: To keep things cheap, don’t pay money to people offering to guide you around sites of nature - you don’t have to pay and you don’t need a guide.

How to Get There

Direct flights are very hard to find - it’s very likely that you’ll have to get connecting flights into Koh Samui. You can still get these flights at cheap prices depending on the time of the year, but you should be expecting long travelling hours – but the amazing Koh Samui holiday experience is definitely worth it.

Places to Go on your Koh Samui Holiday

Koh Samui is a beautiful island with many places to visit during your holiday. There are plenty of tourist oriented places to have fun or relax in, or there’s natural beauty to venture through. Here are our top recommended places to visit in Koh Samui:

  • Big Buddha Temple – This is a giant golden Buddha statue that can be seen from several kilometres away. It stands at 12 metres tall and is lit up at night to make it an even more spectacular sight.
  • Na Muang Waterfall – Also referred to as ‘Purple Waterfalls’ these beautiful waterfalls with purple rock faces are the perfect demonstration of Koh Samui nature working at its finest and is an amazing place to stop by during your Koh Samui holiday. It doesn’t cost a penny to visit either - you can’t get much cheaper than that!
  • Wat Khunaram – This is an amazing insight into Thai culture. It is a gorgeous white and golden building that really shows off how beautiful Thai structures can be, but situated inside is the mummified body of a Thai monk. It’s not every day you get to see something this immense, so we highly recommend you pay a visit to this remarkable place during your Koh Samui holiday.
