Koh Samui see + do

Activities on Koh Samui might start with early morning yoga overlooking the Gulf of Thailand and end with an all-night rave on nearby Koh Phangan. In between, Koh Samui's sunny days are ideal for active adventures. You can go free diving—without scuba gear—offshore near Koh Tao, or kayak around the bays and caves at Ang Thong National Marine Park. Back on land, knead away the jet lag with $10 Thai massages on Bophut Beach (head to the beach in front of the Cactus Bungalow hotel) or submit to full-day recuperative rituals coordinated to the phases of the moon at the spa at the Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui. Indeed, a vacation in Koh Samui is all about therapy, whether spiritual, physical—or retail. You'll find steals on handmade shoes, homemade coconut sweets, chic housewares, and Asian ethnic fashions. When night falls, slip into chic new purchases to drink and dance above the city lights at Q Bar, or for memorable local flavor, watch Thai transvestites strut their considerable stuff at a "ladyboy" show.
