If you’ve heard of Koh Samui, then you know that it is well known for its pristine beaches, among other attractions. You may want to visit the many places in Koh Samui, but how do you visit them all? Here are three places you can visit along with some tips:

1 – Fisherman’s Village

Located at the north of Koh Samui are Bophut beach and a fishing village, 20 minutes away from Taling Ngam. Surrounding this spot is the Big Buddha Beach and the Mae Nam Beaches.

What makes Bophut beach popular is the “Fisherman’s Village” sitting east of the beach. Here, there are several excellent restaurants and a shopping strip that maintains a Thai-Chinese Ambiance. Traditional Chinese shop-houses have been changed into cafes and small stores. If you’re a food lover, then you’re in the right place.

Bophut beach is known for its great food, as the restaurants there provide a wide variety of international and Thai cuisines. On Fridays, the streets are lined with vendors and stalls selling tasty street food and different goods. Live music is also played, creating an exciting atmosphere.

2 – Na Tian Butterfly Garden

In Laem Set lies the beautiful Na Tian Butterfly Garden. Here, you’ll find thousands of colorful butterflies living in a garden. If you want a break from the beaches, you must come here. It is a great place to bring your family along as well. Not only are there butterflies here, but vibrant flowers and even a trail through the gardens.

If you do come, don’t forget to bring your camera, as there are many picture-perfect moments to be captured here. If you want to come into contact with the little insects, butterfly snacks provided to attract them to you.

While exploring the garden, keep a lookout for observation platforms that offer stunning views. Keep in mind that the garden is on a hill, so you’ll need to walk a little to reach the top area.

3 – Stunning Waterfalls

When choosing where to go in Koh Samui, never forget about the waterfalls! There are many waterfalls here, and Na Muang is considered to be the biggest and best of them all. It boasts two different waterfalls – one with a 20-meter drop and the other, 80 meters. If you aren’t fond of hiking, these waterfalls are reachable by car as well.

However, you’ll only be able to reach the smaller of the two. If you fancy a swim, there are natural pools there too! If you want to visit the bigger waterfall, you’ll need to take a 30-minute walk. It isn’t an easy hike, so be sure that you wear proper shoes and bring a bottle of water as well.

The best time to visit Koh Samui’s extensive selection of waterfalls is when there is plenty of rain. This allows for a more significant water flow, which looks spectacular. If you don’t want to drive around yourself, there are organized tours that will bring you around. Also, close to Koh Samui is an elephant trekking path along with souvenir shops and restaurants nearby the falls.
