Koh Samui

Samui is the third largest island in Thailand and located 700 km South of Bangkok in the Gulf of Thailand. Our flight from Bangkok was around 40 minutes with Bangkok Airways. Even though it was a short flight we got drinks and a sandwich, ooh la la.

We stayed at the Q Signature Samui which is up in the hills of the Samui Peninsula and only a 5 minute drive on their free shuttle to Chaweng beach. There was a beach surrounding the hotel as well.

I'd totally come back to this hotel again as it was secluded enough to be peaceful, but close enough to the "main town." It was also RIDICULOUSLY good value for money.

Germans love going to Koh Samui, but I didn't realize how beautiful it really was there. It looks like you had an amazing trip- and like Emily said, what a fabulous way to celebrate your birthday!
