- Booking.com – The best website to book hotels on Koh Samui
- The best time to visit Koh Samui is from mid-December to early September.The driest and sunniest weather is from January to March or April. October and November are the rainiest months in Koh Samui (although you will find some incredible hotel offers).
- The best cities for families: Chaweng (great beach, lots of shops, restaurants, nightlife) – Choeng Mon (quiet town with a handful of restaurants, great beach with shallow water) – Bophut (good beach, night market, fashion shops and restaurants).
- Chaweng has most of the nightclubs and beach bars, but never feels inappropriate for children.The Ark Bar and the neighboring beach clubs have music until the early morning, but that scene is easy to avoid and even that area is quite nice for kids during the day and in the evening. 5 minutes walk north or south from the Ark Bar and Chaweng is very familiar.
