5. KOH SAMUI
Koh Samui, Thailand's second most popular island destination, is
located in the Gulf of Thailand roughly 700km south of Bangkok.
Samui is the largest in an archipelago of more than 80 islands that
includes the Ang Thong National Marine Park, a kayaking paradise
and top day trip from Koh Samui, While Samui is small enough to be
circumnavigated in just a couple of hours by motorbike or car, the
island features such a variety of beaches and activities that it would
be impossible to experience everything in a single visit.

relax and recover; a place to allow both their bodies and minds to
recuperate after medical treatment. Fortunately, Samui features a
few quieter beaches that are ideal for relaxation, particularly those
that have some of the finest 5-star resorts in the world and some that
exude old world charm. There are a number of outstanding spas on
the island that will pamper recovering patients and their companions
equally well, helping both ﬁnd relaxation and harmony within an idyllic
and peaceful environment.

those who aren't looking for adventure, but simply want to relax
comfortably after receiving medical treatment either in Bangkok or at
one of Samui’s treatment facilities.
