Cruises Visiting Koh Samui

aida aura cruise shipKoh Samui is an island off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus in Thailand, about 35 km NE of Surat Thani town. It is Thailand’s third largest island, roughly circular in shape and about 15 km across. The central part of Koh Samui is an uninhabitable mountain jungle and the various lowland areas are connected together by a single road that goes right around Koh Samui.

Circumnavigate Koh Samui, exploring pristine beaches, villages and relaxing beach side restaurants either by hiring a motorbike yourself or a local Koh Samui driver and guide to show you around. Koh Samui is truly an oasis of natural beauty, with its white sandy beaches, dazzling coral, luscious lagoons, Sea Princess cruise to Koh Samuipicturesque waterfalls, swaying coconut trees and crystal clear water. With a broad mixture of cultures, many different traditions, including western, are celebrated.

The Big Buddha, located on the north of Koh Samui, is in all the guide books of Koh Samui but there are several other temples and chedis worth seeking out. Most of the freely distributed maps indicate where the best lookouts are and which waterfalls are notable. Then there are the famous, erotically shaped, Hin Ta and Hin Ya rocks at the southern end of Lamai. It is also possible to visit some of the surrounding islands, while a day trip to the gorgeous Ang Thong National Park, which is the least spoilt of all, and accessible with a guide, may be your choice.

Docking and Local Transportation

Cruise ships dock at the Port of Koh Samui, in Na Thon, the island’s main port town. Transportation is available from the port to the rest of Koh Samui.

Buses are an efficient way to get around Koh Samui. Taxis are available, but make sure to negotiate your fixed price fare in advance. If you don’t, you will have to pay whatever the cab driver decides. Scooters are also available for rent, but the rough roads and uneven terrain around Koh Samui make this a dangerous option.
