Having only 48 hours in Koh Samui is quite a common part of many travel plans, particularly of those on the backpacker trail around Thailand and Southeast Asia. Being just 25km long and 21km across, it is perfectly easy to drive around the little island in the Gulf of Thailand in just a matter of hours. However, the place is packed with stunning beaches, fascinating attractions, breath-taking views, great restaurants and much more. Even with two days, you’re going to have to prioritise and pick just the best of them.
That’s where our 2 Days in Samui Guide comes in. We’ve boiled the huge selection down to just the absolute musts, providing you with a rough itinerary to get you started in planning an unforgettable trip to Koh Samui, even if you have nothing more than a weekend available. Check out the great selection of attractions and activities below.
