Koh Samui is an island in the Gulf of Thailand, a small tropical oasis with secluded beaches and a pace all of its own. For years now the island has been a central part of the travelling yogi trail.
With yoga centers, health cafes and a large community of teachers and health practitioners, there is a real sense of being amongst tribe.
The weather is great year round although if you don't enjoy the rain then avoid October until the New Year when the monsoon comes through.
There are daily flights operating to Koh Samui Airport from Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and also many flights every day from Bangkok. You can also reach Koh Samui via ferry from the mainland at Surat Thani if you travel to the south by train. The ferry will take around 90 minutes.
