What’s the best way to get around Ko Samui?
Getting around Ko Samui is easy thanks to a tourist-centric range of transport options. The island itself is only 25 km long so either way travel is never particularly taxing. A popular choice is the “songthaews” (pick-up taxi), which translates to “two benches”. It is usually a pick-up truck customised to accommodate you.
What’s the weather like in Ko Samui?
Seasons in Thailand are very defined and as such it is important to decide upon the right time to go for you. Want to experience the best of Ko Samui’s lush greenery? Visit between November – February when the remnants of the rainy season turn the country into a vivid paradise. Visiting in May sees the peak of the dry season with temperatures regularly exceeding 30°C (85°F).
