Essentials in Koh Samui
Chaweng Beach: This is probably the most popular beach on Koh Samui and is packed when tourist season arrives. You'll find it all here, even Irish pubs and Italian pizzerias. For rowdy parties, stick around at this beach after dark.
Namtok Hin Lat: Take your Koh Samui car hire for a trip to see this waterfall. The stream falls over several levels, creating different pools that are perfect for swimming in. It makes a nice day trip if you're getting a bit tired of the beach.
Grandmother and Grandfather rocks: Probably most strange of all the sights and things to do is a trip to see these rocks on Lamai Beach. They strike a very close resemblance to the female and male sexual organs and have thus been turned into the most interesting attraction around.
