Holidays to Koh Samui: Opportunities for Loads of Fun
A part of Surat Thani province, Koh Samui is a beautiful island off the east coast of Thailand's Kra Isthmus. It attracts many tourists, from wealthiest travellers to individuals holidaying on a budget. Although this world-famous beach destination is popular among tourists for its white-sand beaches, it also offers unpolluted surroundings, luxurious spas and plenty of opportunities to enjoy beach parties. During your holidays on the island, you would also get to explore the majestic Buddhist temples of the region.
Savour the taste of Khao Phad
The dish that stands out from most of Thailand's delicacies is Khao Phad, which literally translates as 'fried rice' in the Thai language. It is not at all spicy and is quite flexible as it can be prepared with optional items like chicken, pork, crabs and prawns. Khao Phad is basically made using rice, oyster sauce, egg, soy sauce, garlic, salt, and sugar. Your holidays to Koh Samui would give you the chance to taste this delicious treat at any of the local restaurants.
Relax amidst serene surroundings on Lipa Noi Beach
Most of the tourists find it really convenient to get to Lipa Noi Beach as it is close to the island's car ferry pier and is easily accessible from the mainland. The absence of rocks and shallow waters nearby make this beach an ideal one for children as well as adults. Some tourists are reminded of the gorgeous beaches visited during their cheap holidays to penang while walking on this beach. It is relatively less crowded owing to its remoteness and has fascinating natural surroundings.
Get trained in Muay Thai
Muay Thai is Thailand's national sport and is a highly effective martial art that employs kicking as well as boxing techniques. You can utilise your savings earned on the cheap holidays to Koh Samui to get trained in this Thai martial art from expert trainers. The training sessions are conducted in well-maintained gyms for all individuals above the age of 10.
