Experience Bliss in Koh Samui, Thailand

Though the modern world is providing us with the endless possibilities of progress and self-improvement, sometimes an escape to a quiet and peaceful environment is much needed. When you are planning such an escape, you should do it big style! If you are looking for a place with beautiful nature, serenity and exceptional historical heritage, the perfect choice might be Thailand’s Koh Samui.


Koh Samui is, without exaggeration, a piece of heaven on earth. It is a small island in Thailand, that used to be sleepy, but due to tourists’ enormous interest in it, it has awoken. In the distant past it was a Thai fishing community, and you can still feel that charming sensibility. Koh Samui is really quite unique among Thai islands, with the relaxed atmosphere that sets it apart.

What to see?

There is an amazing contrast of crowdedness and serenity on this place, but if you are going just to find some peace, you can wander into more remote reaches of the island, and escape the crowd and the noise into a perfect paradise-like oasis. Na Muang Waterfall, for example, is a must see, for every true nature lover who would dare to walk for about thirty minutes to reach this beauty.

Let yourself be charmed by Hua Thanon village, the last Saumui’s fishing fleets, to get to know the local culture. The true emotion of this place may be experienced by visiting Buddhist temples.  One of the most characteristic ones is the golden temple – Wat SIla Ngu. An important heads-up, if you’ve decided to take a tour of the temples, you should first learn Thai customs, in order not to make a mistake like walking into the temple with your shoes on.
