If looking for a relaxing holiday just to chill out this was the perfect place. It is a quiet part of the island with a few restaurants nearby, we ate most nights at SOPA and found the meals very good. The 2 trips we did were the Island Tour and a boat trip to Angthong Marine park, but to be honest we felt these were quite rushed. (The 2 places nearby to do at your own pace were Big Buddha and Wat Plai Laem (these were both included in the Island Tour – albeit for a bout 15 minutes each – so no time really to take it all in). All in all for relaxing it is the perfect place it just depends what sort of holiday you are looking for – unfortunately for us we found it too quiet – we have come to the conclusion that we need the more cultural/sightseeing type of holiday.
But by no means let this put you off coming to Koh Samui if your type of holiday is kicking back and chilling out on beaches this is perfect for you. Plus
