  Koh Samui, Thailand

Lined for nearly its entire length by hotels and guesthouses, this is, after Chaweng, Samui's most developed beach. You'll see clutches of deckchairs and umbrellas at regular intervals for its entire length. Southeast facing, Lamai's sunrise can be pretty dazzling.

Lamai is on Samui's Southeast coast and is the island's second largest district after the popular tourist area- Chaweng. The area offers similar fare to that of Chaweng, but is much more low key and affordable. It is also conveniently located with many restaurants, hotels, beach, shops and viewpoints nearby. You can get around by foot, car, taxi and bus. With the general laid-back atmosphere, Lamai is suitable for all types of travellers, The beach offers the best sunset views on Koh Samui Island - enjoy a cocktail or coconut while watching the golden red sun set on the horizon. Lamai's walking street market is hosted on Sunday evenings along the road between the fresh market and the bridge. As with Samui's other walking street markets, this one offers good, cheap street food, cocktails, clothing stalls and music. Coco Splash, Samui's only water park, is located in Lamai back off the beach towards the northern end of the village.

There are daily flights operating to Koh Samui International Airport. The airport is around a 20 minute taxi drive away from Lamai. You can also reach Koh Samui via ferry from the mainland port at Surat Thani. The ferry will take around 90 minutes.
