Koh Samui Information:
Thailand’s second largest island Ko Samui,
lies in the Gulf of Thailand off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus.
It's known for its palm-fringed beaches, coconut groves
and dense, mountainous rainforest, plus luxury resorts and posh spas.
The landmark 12m-tall golden Big Buddha statue at Wat Phra Yai Temple
is located on a tiny island connected to Ko Samui by a causeway.
Until the late-20th century, Ko Samui was an isolated self-sufficient
community, having little connection with the mainland of Thailand.
The island was without roads until the early 1970s,
and the 15 km journey from one side of the island to the other
could involve a whole-day trek through the mountainous central jungles.
Abundant tourist resources, sandy beaches, coral reefs,
and coconut trees are present on the island.
