Koh Samui is tropical island. This means high temperatures and high humidity.
Make sure your children are ready for this. Give them enough to drink and more important give them a good sun cream to protect from the sun.
Airconditioners in the room blow cold air. Don't putt it on a very low temperature. The chance of getting a cold or sick is very big. A good temperature is about 25 degrees.
Samui is an island of fun. Swimming and playing on the beach or by the pool
And all kind of tours around Samui are possible. A trip into the jungle is a great day out. Hidden waterfalls, tropical plants and birds are been seen if you go off the ring road.
About an hour and a half from Samui there are superb dive sites with many fish and corals. The islands of Koh Tao and Koh Nangyuan are perfect for snorkelling or laying on the white sandy beach.
Koh Nangyuan is a small island in front of Koh Tao. You can reach this little gem by Lomprayah Ferry or by speed boat. Beware though that Mondays and Tuesdays are very busy. It is one of the most photographed island in Thailand and is counted in the top 10 of the most beautiful islands in Asia.
Also many trips around Samui are available. Just ask us and we can help you making a right decision.
One thing though, We are not fore-stander of riding Elephants. The abuse and the treatment the animals are going through is very bad for the animals health.
But there are many possibilities. Like jungle rides or go to one of the amazing waterfalls on Samui. There are many hidden in the mountains.
We suggest that if you go around on Samui the rent a car or go by taxi or Song Teaw. We are not big believers in motorbikes. There are many accidents around Thailand and we think that a car is much more secure. Ask us for the possibilities. We are happy to help you further and make an holiday you'll never forget.
