Koh Samui Family Travel Adventures – Unforgettable Memories with the Kids

When it comes to a fun family holiday in Thailand, nothing beats an island getaway to Koh Samui. Playing on the beach, captivating family activities, water park thrills and more are some of the things that lie in store!

Beachside Fun

If there’s one place both parents and kids love it’s the beach and Koh Samui has plenty of options when it comes to this! Be you staying at Bophut, Lamai or Chaweng beach resorts you can look forward to lots of family fun from lazing on the shore to trying some snorkelling.

Activities for All

There is much to do when in Koh Samui and certain resorts such as Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort offer special activities for kids like origami and yoga on the beach. Parents can also look to sign up for cooking or Muay Thai classes that make for wonderful new experiences.

Water Park Excitement

A great way to beat the heat that the kids will definitely love is visiting one (or more!) of the water parks in Koh Samui. The Pink Elephant Samui Water Park and High Park Samui are two options, while for something different there’s Aquapark Samui located right on Chaweng Beach with various inflatable devices in the water.

Adventure Beckons

The family who loves adventure can head to the Ang Thong Marine National Park where one can snorkel, kayak and explore islands to your heart’s content. Alternatively, Canopy Adventures gives one the chance to zipline amidst rainforests and Samui Go-Kart lets families engage in some competitive racing.

Travel Tips to Koh Samui – Let Your Worries Melt Away!

This is Thailand’s second largest island and is one that is sought after by many tourists from across the globe. Want to know more about Koh Samui and what to do when you get here?

1) Visit the Temple of the Big Buddha

One of the most important things that you cannot exclude on your visit here is going to the Temple of the Big Buddha. This is one of the island’s most popular attractions and is located on a tiny island connected to Samui. The temple features a 12-meter-high, golden statue of a sitting Buddha.

2) Bo Phut’s Fisherman’s Village

Bo Phut’s Fisherman’s Village will probably be one of your favourite places here. While it initially used to be a fishing community, with time, it has changed to a little picturesque village today that is filled with shops, restaurant, boutique hotels and beach bars.

3) Hike up Na Muang Waterfall

Located in the centre of the island, this is the tallest waterfall in all of Koh Samui. You can even swim at its base during the rainy season when the water flow is at a maximum level. Bophut resorts are in abundance if you look around for a place to stay, such as the Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort for example.

4) Visit the Grandfather and Grandmother rocks

Also called Hin-Ta and Hin-Yai, this is one of the most photographed spots in all of Koh Samui. While many come for the rocks, the stunning view alone is reason enough.
