The beaches range from soft sand to marvelous boulders jutting out into the water. There is an aroma of natural sweetness from palm trees and coconuts strewn around and within the cityscape. The island is a collection of cosmopolitan lifestyle and seclusion, where the city offers sensational restaurants and the beaches offer comfort away from the energetic rush of the city streets. The lush and dense greenery at the center of the island is ripe jungle, filling so much of the empty space; whether vivacious trees or glistening beaches, you will find the ambience of the island embracing, giving you the best of every and any world imaginable.

Your first full day on the island brings you to the shores of Lamai Beach, one of the most popular beaches on the island due to its powdery sand and intricate outcrop of rocks, molded by the elements but shaped by legend. The following day you will explore the variety of beauty at Ang Thong National Marine Park, where boating through the reserve is not just for the life beneath the surface of the sea, but the spectacular landscape above, from sprouting limestone karsts to lavish rocky arches.
Your island adventure continues with your arrival on Koh Tao, which translates to Turtle Island. Your days along the quieter landscape of Koh Tao are at your leisure; however, the island continues to be one of the best places in the world to participate in or learn to scuba, offering you a view of the unparalleled tropical aquatic life. Return to Koh Samui and make your way through the center of the island on a jungle tour. Within the island’s heart you will experience what it is like to climb aboard an elephant and traipse through the trees to a lovely waterfall. On the main shore of Nakhon Si Thammarat you will witness the variety of culture and scenery within the lesser-visited ancient city, from the stunning temple to the iconic shadow puppet theater. The following day you will journey through the Khao Luang National Park to see the amazing Krung Ching Waterfall. Your final morning will have you en route toward home filled with island memories and more.
