Samui Seascapes, Koh Samui, Thailand

By Elite Traveler

Elite Traveler Top 50 AdventuresExplore the tropical islands on the eastern coast of Thailand, known for dreamy beaches fringed with coconut trees and dense jungle. While Thailand is a year-round destination, we recommend visiting in April to celebrate Songkran, the Thai New Year. The only downside (or upside for sun worshippers) is that this is the hottest month. Escape the heat by diving in the waters of Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan to spot the abundance of tropical marine life and coral species, or hike to Namuang Waterfall — muang means ‘purple’ in Thai, and the rocks that form the falls are indeed purple. Kayak enthusiasts will want to head to Angthong National Marine Park, a protected archipelago of roughly 42 tropical islands — the majority of which are uninhabited and undeveloped. Land your kayak on the beach of Koh Mae Koh and climb through lush tropical forest to see the gorgeous Emerald Lake, then spend the afternoon kayaking through lakes, along beaches and into caves.

From $1,600 per person. Contact Brian Morgan, CEO, +1 406 541 2677,
