Koh Samui is Thailand’s second-largest island. It’s a great alternative destination to the crowded beaches of Phuket, and you’ll find no shortage of fun and entertainment there. In this article, we’ll bring attention to some of our favorite activities found in this little corner of the world, so without further ado, let’s get started!
1. Soar through the jungle canopy
If you’re looking for instant exhilaration, the wind in your hair, and perhaps a few bugs in your teeth, try zip lining! We guarantee the experience is like no other, and you’ll likely want to go back for another round after. Head to Sky Fox Cable Ride to see for yourself. It’s about a half-hour drive from most hotels, and the entire activity will take just a couple of hours.
2. Go on a 4WD safari adventure
There’s nothing like enjoying what Koh Samui has to offer while maneuvering around rugged terrain with your friends or family. A 4WD sightseeing tour will take you to some of the best places around the island, but remember that going on one will likely take up your entire day.
3. Get in the water
For those looking to get in touch with the diverse marine life around the island, snorkeling and diving activities are an excellent way to do so. Even beginners will have no problems enjoying this activity, and there are countless providers at your disposal to take you on a guided underwater adventure.
4. Relieve some stress at a shooting range
There’s nothing like shooting a gun (in a safe and controlled environment, of course) to help you feel like you’re in charge of things. The activity is a great stress-reliever and can offer a truly unique experience for you and your group. You have several options in this regard, so just look for one that’s most suited to your needs.
5. Experience one-of-a-kind art installations
Have you ever heard of 3D trick art? Well, it’s a huge trend in Thailand and Koh Samui has their very own museum devoted to such pieces where you can see what the fuss is all about. Book a tour at Art Samui, where you can take amazing photos to show everyone back home.
6. Enjoy a drag show
Drag performances are a big part of the local culture, so you’d be missing out if you didn’t get a chance to see them live. There are many venues on the island for such performances, so be prepared for some truly stellar lipsync numbers, intricate costumes, and a lively atmosphere where everyone is welcome.
7. Go to the races
Better yet, actually be part of a race! Go-karting is a safe way for speed junkies to get their adrenaline fix, and there are two outdoor tracks on the island. You’ll be able to test your mettle against other drivers and prove once and for all who the king of the road is.
These are just some of the many fun and exciting activities to look forward to on your trip to Koh Samui. While the beaches are truly world-class, we encourage that you take the time to venture away from them and seek out other thrills to make the most of your time there.
