Koh Samui can be described in one word: paradise.
Yes, this gorgeous island located in southern Thailand offers paradise to travelers in need of a break from the crowded Bangkok, the land-locked Chiang Mai or even the backpacker loop of SE Asia.
Here, you can unwind in adorable bungalows, sip exotic cocktails, party like you’re underage and just chill out. During my time in Samui, I chose to just chill, and let me say this: it was freaking awesome.
There is nothing better than just sitting outside (or laying) and taking in the spectacular views of the azure waters of the Gulf, the contrast when storm clouds roll in, and, of course, a rainbow that briefly appears to add even more color to the world.
