The Ease of Travel: Australia to Koh Samui

“There is a kind of magicness about going far away and then coming back all changed.” — Kate Douglas Wiggin

The wonder of travelling is often seen afterwards. The well-rested glow, an enthusiastic aura, and the fervour to re-tell the adventures made. All of these and more are evidence that the life truly can change for better when visiting new places.

Koh Samui, a scenic uber wonder in Asia, is one of the top destinations because of its natural appeal to adventure seekers, nature lovers, culture and history experts, nomad travellers, and to just about anyone who likes to see new places and meet new people.

A Pandora of Beauty

Located 3,305 miles from Australia is Koh Samui, the next best tropical haven you should be visiting. This distance might seem intimidating at first but with so many options – such as airlines and tourist spots (which are all too amazing to miss out!) –  this a trip you must definitely take!

With other available summer destinations like Bali, Koh Samui is a wonderful surprise for everyone. Better yet, it’s the perfect spot for your vacation. All these reasons will prove our point.

They say the best surprises come in small packages. The island is relatively small, thus giving tourists the liberty of seeing the whole the island. Plus, it’s really easy to move around the Koh Samui because of the absence of major traffic. In fact, you’ll be reminded of the quote by J.R.R. Tolkien, “Not all those who wander are lost” because of the beauty of Koh Samui’s off the beaten path.

Think of it this way. After enjoying the perks of the major tourist spots on the island, a few steps further you will be treated to a majestic display of lush forests and waterfalls. It’s also a bonus that the island’s convenient location gives guests the access to other islands. Imagine, a day trip to two or more islands with just one speedboat.

Over the years, Koh Samui is able to preserve much of its incredible nature, unlike other destinations in Asia. Imagine pristine shores with white and oh-so-soft sand that gives you a melt-between-your-toes experience. The surrounding waters are truly a spectacle to behold, inviting you to dive right in. The island also offers a cleaner ambience that other popular Australian tourist destinations.

Food lovers will find delight in getting the best of both worlds in Koh Samui – mouth-watering cheap dishes and unforgettable world-class cuisines! Those who want a mix of serenity and lively entertainment will be pleased to know that there are a lot of places for meditation while its night scene has the best parties to attend to!

Overall, Koh Samui is the best vacation alternative to other islands. It exudes this sense of idyllic comfort and style with all that is chic – wellness treatments, gorgeous beach fronts, amazing restaurant, and stunning villas. Have we mentioned that you’ll be arriving in one of the most beautifully designed airports? Talk about posh! You’ll be off the plane, through customs, and into your transport within 10 minutes!
