Why Fly to Koh Samui?

Tourism is on the rise in Thailand, but many travelers are passing up the religious sites of Bangkok and the rolling greenery of Phuket for the brilliant, sparkling beaches of Koh Samui. Situated just off the mainland in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui was for centuries a quiet, self-sufficient fishing island until the 1970s, when word of its beauty began to spread among curious travelers. By the 1990s, modern hotels started sprouting up along the beach, and today, several daily cheap flights to Koh Samui carry vacationers seeking the island’s famously pristine sand, clear water and lavish resort accommodations.

Which Airlines Fly to Koh Samui?

The vast majority of the flights that arrive at Koh Samui Airport (USM) are serviced by Bangkok Airways, Thailand’s primary regional airline. Most of these flights originate in Bangkok, but Bangkok Airways connects with a few other major air gateways including Phuket, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Koh Samui Flight Tips

If you decide to take advantage of Bangkok’s multiple daily flights to Koh Samui, you can book direct flights from Los Angeles to Bangkok via Thai Airways International. Most other routes from the U.S. to Bangkok involve at least one connection outside the country, including flights with U.S.-based Delta Air Lines, which connect in Tokyo. Affordable fares on indirect flights are often available from major international carriers like British Airways and Lufthansa.

Quick Travel Guide to Koh Samui

There are plenty of things to do in Koh Samui, but many visitors end up spending a good deal of their time snoozing on the beach and swimming in the warm gulf waters. It’s hard to blame them; though development on the island has picked up speed, the beaches themselves are mostly unspoiled and the water is remarkably clean. Many hotels in Koh Samui make it even more difficult to get away from the beach by offering oceanfront cocktail service, cabanas and water sports rentals.
If you do set out to explore the island’s other offerings, you can get an intriguing look at the industries that supported the island before its tourism renaissance by taking a plantation tour. Several plantations producing coconut and rubber, the island’s primary exports, still operate using time-honored methods.

You’ll also find numerous Buddhist temples and monuments, including Big Buddha, Koh Samui’s most famous landmark. At 36 feet, the shimmering gold edifice is one of the more memorable sights you’ll find on the island.

There’s no end to the exhilarating activities at your disposal, from diving with manta rays to soaring through jungle treetops on a zip-line canopy tour. If you’re curious about the island’s wildlife, you can even encounter some of the native species up close at the Paradise Park Farm. And after a full day of sightseeing or sun worshipping, refuel with the famously spicy cuisine of South Thailand. The island’s hearty supply of fresh fish and coconut allows Koh Samui’s chefs to create amazing culinary experiences.
