Thailand - Ko Samui & Lower Gulf (Chapter)
This is the Ko Samui & the Lower Gulf chapter from Lonely Planet’s Thailand guidebook.
The Lower Gulf features Thailand’s ultimate island trifecta: Ko Samui, Ko Pha-Ngan and Ko Tao, which lure millions of tourists every year with their powder-soft sands and emerald waters. Ko Samui has a business-minded attitude towards vacation, while Ko Pha-Ngan has a penchant for hammock-lazing and all-night parties. Ko Tao offers high-adrenaline activities, including world-class diving and snorkelling. Travellers seeking something more off the radar can explore Ang Thong Marine National Park, an ethereal realm with some of the most picture-perfect moments in the kingdom.

- String up a cotton hammock at a secluded beach, or join in a Full Moon Party on Ko Pha-Ngan
