Koh Ferry Samui: the Most Popular Vacation Destination in Tailand

By Smith Lara Subscribe to RSS | December 29th 2011 | Views:

Portray a Koh Samui afternoon. In the dim coolness of your room the only sound is that of the surf outside the windows. The room is fragrant will lemongrass plus other aromatic herbs and the sense of relaxation is absolute. You're experiencing one of the wonders of Thailand - the traditional Thai massage furthermore it feels heavenly.

You can have a stimulating massage or invigorating spa treatment anywhere in Thailand; however on the tropical isle of Koh Samui, it's truly wonderful. If you want to make health the central focus of your holiday this is the ideal destination owing to the presence of the many residential fasting and health improvement centres. For those wanting a detox, there are fasting retreats with colonic irrigation, plus you can study yoga and other eastern regimens.

It's quite easy to get to Ferry Samui these days, you can travel by bus, boat, train or plane – up to you as the Thais say! If you come by road or rail then you'll also have to take the Ferry Samui or Speed Boat Services so it can take up to a day to reach your destination. Flying is obviously the fastest method and the airport on the island has won awards for its design that blends in flawlessly with the natural surroundings. Flights arrive here from all over including Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong, domestic flights from Bangkok are regular with nearly all of them operated by Bangkok Airways.

There is no public transport system on Koh Samui so you have to rely on yellow taxis that work out somewhat expensive, or stand at the side of the road and you'll soon get picked up by one of the open pick-up-style people carriers known as ‘song thiews'. Though they don't run in the evening so if you want to go farther afield then you are reliant on a taxi to get you there.

Samui has kept up with the times and its general for hotels and restaurants to offer internet access these days so you won't be cut off from the rest of the world! Wireless hotspots are also more readily available and usually should be free of charge. There are plenty of cash machines found around the island, particularly in the more touristy areas, or money changing services are too very common.

There are a few do's and don'ts to mention although Thai people are usually tolerant and happy by nature, so as long as you are polite and considerate and remember you are in a foreign country then there shouldn't be any problems.

If you are visiting a temple, make sure you cover up and don't wear skimpy tops or bikinis! Many temples in fact have sarongs on hand to lend out to inappropriately dressed farangs. Moreover if you are a woman then ensure you don't touch a monk as he is going through a 'purification' ritual and this will cause a lot of consternation.

Take off your shoes if you happen to visit a Thai's house, this as well applies to some shops. You'll see a pile of shoes at the entrance if this is the case thus just follow suit. Lastly, never show anger to a Thai as you will get nowhere. If a Thai person has to handle an uncomfortable situation they will just slow down or even disappear for a while. The angrier you get the more they will oppose the situation, keep calm and keep smiling and you'll get what you want a lot faster. Check out Ferry for a real-life adventure and a holiday that you will never forget.
