Koh Samui with Ang Thong, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao
Koh Samui is a Thai island in the Gulf of Siam off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus. It is Thailands third largest island after Phuket and Koh Chang and was famous to grow the best coconuts of all of Thailand. After the tourist industry was developed in the early 80s, the island quickly achieved an international reputation and today has more than 1.5 million tourists per year. A little to the north of Koh Samui lies the smaller island Koh Phangan, where tourism is not as dominant yet as in Koh Samui. Another 30 miles to the north lies the famous dive island Koh Tao. To the west of Koh Samui, between the island and the coast, stretches the vast National Marine Park of Ang Thong, made up of 42 islands featuring spectacular lime stone massivs, tropical rainforest and deserted beaches.
