Koh Samui
Ko Samui is an island off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus in Thailand, close to the mainland Surat Thani town.

The island was probably first inhabited about 15 centuries ago, settled by fishermen from Malay Peninsula and Southern China. It appears on Ming Dynasty maps dating back to 1687, under the name Pulo Cornam. The name Samui is mysterious in itself. Perhaps it is an extension of the name of one of the native trees, mui, or it is a corruption of the Chinese word Saboey, meaning "safe haven".

Samui is located in the Gulf of Thailand, about 35km northeast of Surat Thani town (9N, 100E). It is surrounded by about sixty other islands, most of which comprise the Ang Thong National Marine Park. The island is roughly circular in shape, and is about 15km across.

Ko Samui exhibits a tropical climate and lures international tourists from February to April or even as late as June, when the sea is calmer. Like most Asian holiday destinations, the people of Ko Samui are warm and friendly.

Perhaps one of the most recognizable symbols of Ko Samui is the 15 meters high statue of Lord Buddha and is a must-visit while planning a trip to Ko Samui. Picturesque in the way it represents the constant influence of nature on Thailand, the Na Muang Waterfall, located just around 10 kms south of Nathon at Ban Thurian is one of the principal tourist attractions of Ko Samui.
