Koh Samui & Koh Chang: Crystal clear waters, sandy white beaches

We recommend Koh Chang as a starting point if you want to discover the northern part of Thailand. Small fishing villages, wonderful beaches, amazing waterfalls, and a fascinating underwater world will enchant you. Please note, you can only get fresh water in the marina of Koh Chang! We highly recommend you to order your drinks and food prior to departure.

Koh Samui is the perfect starting point for an active holiday - either on land or at sea. About 65 km. in the north of Koh Samui, you will find the snorkeling paradise Koh Tao. In Hing Wong and Aow Leuk, you will find magnificent restaurants. Enjoy fresh sea food, or a Thai chicken spiced with local herbes. If you plan to go ashore a bit longer, you should go to the beach of Koh Mae, walk to the emerald green lake and climb up to enjoy a stunning view over land and sea. An also highly popular destination are the sea caves of Koh Tai Plow.
