Some people like to visit Thailand during wintertime, some others in summer, but we recommend visiting Koh Samui in April! This is definitely the best month to enjoy great weather and the traditional Thai New Year celebration – the Songkran 2017.
No matter if you prefer pure beach holiday, wondering around Buddhist temples, dreaming to dive under the Turquoise waters or to enjoy tropical safari adventures, Thailand has it all. It’s time to plan your holiday on Koh Samui Island!
The Songkran festival is the traditional Thai New Year’s Day which is celebrated from 13 April to 15 April. Discover this amazing festival with Samui Turquoise Villas.
Millions of people across the globe will celebrate the Chinese New Year on 8 February. The Chinese zodiac calendar, known as Sheng Xiao, is divided into 12 cycles. Each cycle lasts 12 months and is represented by an animal. This year, it is the Year of the Monkey.
There are several wonderful and unique temples and religious shrines on Koh Samui. The most famous of these is The Big Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Yai). The Guan Yu shrine in Lamai is the most recent addition to the island’s sightseeing destinations. We are happy to have the possibility to participate in the Guan Yu Koh Samui Shrine Openning ceremony.
The shrine is a celebration of Chinese heritage and is dedicated to Guan Yu.
Big Buddha temple sits majestically on a small rocky island off Koh Samui’s north-eastern corner. It’s known locally as the Wat Phra Yai, its a golden, huge 12-metre seated Buddha statue.
