Thailand’s third-largest island, Koh Samui has developed a wide selection of premium resorts and exceptional restaurants within a paradise-like setting. One of the country’s leading holiday destinations, the island offers a forested interior with picturesque waterfalls and peaceful stretches of coastline to explore, plus excellent fresh seafood, of course.
Get a local touch of Koh Samui with Destination Asia Thailand by visiting a traditional fishing village. At the same time, gain a glimpse of their daily life and community initiatives focusing on a more sustainable future for the fisherman.
Start in the afternoon with a delicious lunch at a local organic garden and restaurant before walking through its onsite garden to see how the local herbs and vegetables used in its dishes are grown, from farm to table. Following on, wander around the local fresh market famous among Samui villagers and take in its lively atmosphere. Next, visit a local fisherman village to discover how the locals live away from the main tourist areas before visiting the crab bank set up by the villagers to make their living more sustainable for the future. At the end of the day, guests will also have a chance to release thousands of baby blue crabs back into the sea to ensure their species continue to live along the Thai coasts for generations to come.
