Big Buddha Temple on Koh Samui

Koh Samui represents the idyllic topical island paradise: small and laid back, coconut palms swaying over white sand beaches... It is part of an archipelago of islands lying just off the coast in the province of Surat Thani at the western edge of the Gulf of Thailand.

At 247 square kilometers, Koh Samui is the largest, and one of only six inhabited islands. A coastal road runs around the island for some 50 kilometers and links the many beaches and bays.
