Holidays for Couples

LAND OF smiles


Approaching the small, jewel-shaped isle of Samui, lush green mountains loom up out of the mist, as you fly close over colourful fishing boats bobbing in the emerald sea and the small wooden homes that line the sandy shore. It’s no wonder it’s been nicknamed ‘fantasy island’ by those lucky enough to visit. Most arrive via Bangkok – it’s just a one-hour flight direct south from the busy capital, a pleasant jaunt over the Gulf of Thailand – before disembarking at one of the world’s prettiest airports, an assemblage of open-air tropical-themed halls, navigated by trolley car, which sets the tone for the rest of the stay.

SEE: The weekly Sunday walking street market in the Bophut Fisherman’s Village is a great place to pick up unique souvenirs and – when you need a break – people watch. Not far from here you’ll also find the famous Big Buddha, and amazing coastal views.

You can find pretty much anything your heart desires in Samui, but for top-notch and inventive cuisine look no. A close runner-up is the Mediterranean cuisine at , which also offers fine views of the beach.
