Samui Atrractions and Island
Koh Samui is Thailand's second-largest island after Phuket, with an area of 228.7 km2, a population of over 63,000 and a hotel occupancy rate of 73 percent as the number of visitors continues to increase. Abundant tourist resources, sandy beaches, coral reefs, and coconut trees are present on the island.
Angthong National Marine is an archipelago of more than 40 stunningly beautiful islands of which only one is inhabited. Emerald waters, deep caves, bizarre rock formations, hidden lagoons, white sandy beaches - every inch of this island is just waiting to be explored. Trek through the dense vegetation and take pictures of the huge limestone monoliths for which the Island is famous. AngThong ’Golden Basin’ is a world in itself where mackerel, squirrels, pythons, monitors, sea otters, leopard cats, wild boars and dusky langurs have made their home. It is for this bountiful natural wealth that it was declared a National Marine Sanctuary in 1980.
