Intro to Koh Samui Thailand – #1 Place to Live Like a God on a Budget

Koh Samui Thailand
Koh Samui Thailand has often been called the best place in Asia to, “Retire and Live Like a King on a Budget.”  It’s perfect for anyone seeking the “Gods of Thailand” lifestyle.

Koh Samui is Thailand’s third largest island and is called home by many foreigners.  This island is small enough so you don’t feel like you live in a city, yet large enough that you don’t feel trapped by “island sickness.”

If you want to see a movie, go to the cinema.  If you want to go swimming, go to one of the many beautiful beaches.  If you want to go bowling, you’ve got a bowling alley.  And if you want a break from Thailand, Koh Samui has an international airport.

Samui is one of the best places in Asia to have an extended mini retirement. Whether you’re staying one month or 5 years, you’ll have no regrets choosing Samui.

Why Koh Samui Thailand?  Here’s a Short List:


Never underestimate the power of relaxation.  So many of us today are over worked and over stressed.  Sometimes all it takes is a simple relaxing vacation to clear the head.

We have heard countless times, Koh Samui Thailand is one of the best getaways for this.  You’ll have to travel far and wide to find anything that can match its sheer beauty.

Koh Samui Nightlife:

Chaweng in Samui is one great place to experience Thailand’s incredible nightlife scene.  Here you will find activities such as: beer bars, discos, live bands, traditional Thai dancing and lady boxing.

Koh Samui rests next to Thailand’s world famous Full Moon Party.  Simply hop on a speedboat and you are only 20 minutes away from the world’s most popular beach party.


Near the island of Koh Samui you will find the best diving available in southeast Asia.  The water is warm, clear, and contains rich coral reef with impressive fish life.

Certification programs are available from beginner to advance students.  If you don’t have much time, why not try a short term course to get your “feet wet”.


Koh Samui has Santiburi, the only professional golf course in Thailand which was opened in 2003.

For those not quite ready for the professional course, you’ll find mini golf courses throughout the island.  If this isn’t enough, Samui also has a Football Golf course.

Elephant Trekking:

Enjoy the jungles of Samui like never before, on the back of an Elephant.  Samui hosts over 50 highly trained elephants to give you a once in a lifetime adventure.

Elephant Trekking tours are available for full day and partial day tours.

And much more…
