Elephant Trekking

The elephant is the national animal of Thailand, which symbolizes strength and royalty. Right in the center of Koh Samui, there is a tropical rain forest with lush green plantations. Taking a tour of such a scenic beauty on the back of an elephant is one hell of an experience, witnessing the nature in its purest form. You can stroll past the exotic flora and fauna species, while taking a halt at waterfalls that come your way.

You may not have wings to fly, but a Sky Fox cable ride is an incredible activity that can take your breath away right in the air. For all those speed lovers, this ride will give you a feeling of what it’s like to take off from one platform to another at an unbelievable height. It may look a bit scary from the outset, but once you do it, the excitement will force you to go ahead.

Spa Treatments

Koh Samui is an ideal spot to stress out and relax, especially with all the refreshing centers and services offered at a reasonable cost. Body conditioning and Spas have been the specialty and if there’s any place in the world you can have the best traditional massage or body treatments, it is this part of Asia.


The ocean’s current merging with three crests of the island gives a breathtaking view of the sandbar beaches that are completely exclusive to the world. The crystal clear waters give you a chance to snorkel and observe the diverse aquatic life and witness the beauty of the marine world. And in case you are not done in the first outing, you can take a dip again after having a meal.
