Welcome to Koh
Lying some 80 kilometers offshore and set amongst innumerabal
islands of the Angthong group, Samui proudly reigns as the jewel
in the crown.
From the minute that you arrive, whether that be on a Bangkok Airways
or aboard one of the many ferries that service Samui, the beauty of
paradise begins its enchantment. The airport ranking in charm
splendour among the finest in the world. The ferry ports leading
palm fringed beaches or quaint oriental towns are also quite delightful.
