Koh Samui… back in 1996 when this was taken it was an island of natural beauty and charm, a perfect place where you can have a relaxing and comfortable holiday. Blue-sky days and a nice ocean breeze are the norm.
It offered gorgeous beaches and great diving opportunities for both beginners and advanced divers. It also has lots of coral reefs for snorkeling and kayaking.
The hills of Samui also have some pretty waterfalls, coconuts and trails for the leisurely hiker to explore.
It was Thailand’s third largest island and still a place of relatively untouched beauty. It has a temperate climate and rarely reaches below 25 degrees. The rainy season occurs in late October and November.
If you’re planning on a visit post 2011, it HAS been touched: by a lot of people and a lot of enterprises.
