Sparkling azure waters, palm-fringed beaches, velvety sands and isolated coves. Koh Samui is a kind of place people don't forget in a hurry! A wonderful tropical island that awaits tourists some 80kms off the south-eastern coast of Thailand, Ko Samui is immersed in a spectacle of sightseeing and a rainbow of leisure pursuits. Of course, it is the beach and beach-side activities that most appeal to travellers who jump aboard flights to fly to the island. There are multiple, colourful beaches at Koh Samui, with Chaweng, Lamai and Maenam leading the pack. But Ko Samui has more in store than just beaches and the related revelries. Samui Snake Farm, Tarnim Magic Garden, Koh Samui Butterfly Garden and Samui Aquarium & Tiger Zoo are few interesting spots to hit while vacationing in Koh Samui.
Serving the island of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailand, Samui International Airport is a privately owned airport that is built by Bangkok Airways. Starting out as a small airport, Samui International Airport has been developed as one of Thailand's leading aviation hubs. It handles nearly one million passengers, every year and serves several regional and few international airlines. The airport is located just 2kms from the main city. It has an open-air Thai restaurant, post office, souvenir shop and the newly-launched spa. For its uniqueness and environmentally friendly design, the airport has received several awards over the years.
Koh Samui is one of Thailand's leading beach destinations, and an enhanced connectivity with the rest of the world certainly makes much business sense for flight operators. However, Koh Samui's international airport is not a very big one, with only few regional and international carriers offering flights to Koh Samui. Thai Airways, Malaysian Airline, Singapore Airlines, British Airways and Qatar Airways are among the airlines that offer scheduled and code share flights to the city from London Heathrow, UK's largest airport. Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport is perhaps the most popular layover for most global operators.
Koh Samui is a vibrant holiday destination, with a large number of accommodation alternatives available for tourists. With more and more people keen on holidaying in Koh Samui, a number of hotels and resorts are coming up all over the city. The choices, in terms of style and budget, are numerous too. As a majority of tourists seeking tickets on Koh Samui flights are mid-range travellers, perhaps the most number of accommodation choices belong to this category. There are several regal ones too, with Renaissance Koh Samui Resort & Spa, Centara Grand Beach Hotel and Conrad Koh Samui Resort & Spa being among the most popular ones.
Thailand's Koh Samui can be a hot place, so it best to plan holidays here during the winter (December and February). The temperature during the season is warm and pleasant, offering opportune climatic conditions to those who wish to sightsee and indulge in different recreational pursuits. Rain in December is not uncommon but it is usually for a short spell. Travellers hoping to net cheap flight tickets for an affordable holiday during the peak season must book their tickets to Koh Samui early. Other parts of the year can be hot and those, who intend to save money on airfares by travelling during the off-season months, must carry with them hats and sun screens.
