What are the Best Things to do in Koh Samui?
The island of Koh Samui off the east coast of Thailand is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the country. Although you will find a significant number of English language teaching jobs on the island, for most teachers it is a dream location for enjoying some well earned time away from the classroom during the holidays or at the weekend. The number one attraction for many is the unrivalled beauty of the island’s beaches. Whether you prefer peace and tranquility among the swaying palm trees, or watersports, lively bars and extensive shopping, there is a beach to suit you in Koh Samui. You will also find plenty to enjoy away from the beach, including ornate temples, lush jungle, hidden caves, and the fascinating rock formations known as Hin Ta (Grandpa Rock) and Hin Yai (Grandma Rock) which are said to resemble male and female genitalia.
