Koh Samui is Thailand's third largest island, after Ko Phuket and Ko Chang. It is rich with natural resources, white sandy beaches, coconut trees and coral reefs. Samui's beaches are world famous. Its long, perfect strands attract around 500.000 visitors each year. On Samui, it's all about the beach – but make sure you slap planty of lotion. Sunburn can mean a holiday in your hotel room. The island is small enough to drive a car around in about an hour, but large enough to discover new things and beautiful places even if you stay for weeks. Chaweng is the longest beach and also the biggest tourist area on Samui with a long commercial shopping street set behind it, separated by hotels and restaurants. It's usually pretty busy, but the beach is long enough to cope with the crowds. Chaweng beach is packed out with nightclubs playing the latest rave sounds and serving exotic cocktails. It wasn't so long ago that the only chance of being pampered on a Samui holiday was by having a beach massage. Things have changed and the island now boasts of having many excellent spas that can truly be referred to as a world class. You can choose between classical Thai massage, aroma oil massage, herbal steam massage, facial massage, foot massage, hot stone massage, oriental blend massage and many others. Therapists are usually trained to the highest standards, so you can just relax and enjoy in the massage of the beautiful Thai woman.
