Book flights to Koh Samui

Thailand’s second-largest island is certainly not second best, with lush jungles, pristine beaches and ocean-front bungalows setting the scene for a dreamy tropical getaway. Discover the real Koh Samui by exploring its traditional villages and spiritual temples by day, then enjoy authentic Thai food and vibrant nightlife after dark.

Fly from London to Koh Samui with British Airways and our partner airline Qatar and you’ll be touching down in paradise. Get acquainted with the island’s beauty at the Ang Thong National Marine Park. You can visit this archipelago of 42 islands on organised day trips for snorkeling, kayaking or hiking. Or, head inland to the jungles and swim in the cool rock pools at the base of the Na Muang waterfalls. If relaxing on white sandy beaches is more your speed, you’ll have around 40 to explore. Find serenity at the secluded Laem Yai Beach in the north or get stuck into the action at the fun-packed, palm-lined Chaweng Beach with its bars, watersports and nearby spas. Book your holiday to Thailand today.

Is Koh Samui cheap to visit?

Koh Samui caters to every budget, whether you’re backpacking or living the high life in five-star resorts. Chaweng is the busiest of Koh Samui’s destinations and prices here are often higher than you’ll find in nearby Lamai. Save on Thai favourites at the Lamai Walking Street night market and relax in the great value beachside bars.

It’s also free to visit some of the island’s main attractions, such as the Samui Big Buddha temple in the northeast. Plan your visit for the morning to catch the monks during their daily chanting.

Alternatively, international car rental outlets are also located at the airport.

Why visit Koh Samui?

There’s so much to love about Koh Samui before you even step foot on its beaches. You can immerse yourself in this island of contrasts, where spiritual Buddhist temples and shrines stand among the lush green hills and coconut plantations, just a stone’s throw from lively night markets and luxury spas.

To see a simpler way of life, visit the charming Fishing Village area of Bophut. Its streets are lined with old wooden shophouses and lit with Chinese lanterns. After a leisurely stroll through the town, you can retreat to the beachside bars and restaurants for a cocktail and authentic Thai food.
