Koh Samui


Join us on a journey that captures the rich tapestry of Koh Samui’s local life, with an island experience that bridges the traditional with the contemporary.

Ease into your day as your expert local guide collects you from your hotel, ready to introduce you to some of the island’s most iconic sights. First up is the Big Buddha Temple, a landmark of both cultural significance and architectural beauty. Here, find a moment of calm as you gaze upon the towering statue, an emblem of the island’s spiritual heritage.

Our adventure continues as we make our way up to Chaweng Viewpoint. Feel on top of the world as you take in panoramic views of Koh Samui’s coastline, painted with the vibrant greens of the tropics and the azure of the ocean.

The curiosity doesn’t end there; we’ll soon be standing before the intriguing Grandfather and Grandmother Rock formations. Marvel at these natural wonders that have been shaped by the elements into remarkable sculptures.

Afterwards, venture with your guide into the lively heart of Hua Thanon Market. This bustling hub is where locals shop and socialise, offering you a slice of everyday Koh Samui life. Savour the sights and sounds, and perhaps sample some local treats.

Next up, the Fisherman’s Village reveals another facet of island life, where tradition meets the sea. Walk by the waterside, amidst buildings that echo a storied past, and witness a community that still thrives on its fishing roots.

Provided it’s open, we’ll stop at a ground-breaking rum distillery for a peek into the island’s craft spirit scene. If available, a rum tasting session awaits, for a taste of tropical flavours distilled into every drop.

Our drive then winds through the island’s bountiful interior, past plantations that grow everything from coconuts to exotic fruits. It’s a lush landscape that offers a green sanctuary and a glimpse into the rural side of Samui life.

We’ll close our day at a favourite local café. It’s the perfect spot to relax with a cool drink and reflect on the day’s discoveries, all shared in a setting that’s both inviting and awash with antique charm.
