Things To Do In Phuket and Koh Samui

Thing you must do in Phuket or Koh Samui


Choosing between Phuket or Koh Samui has always been a debate for many people visiting Thailand. Both islands are beautiful in their own way, so there is no definite answer to that. It really depends on what exactly is your dream vacation style. To help you decide which destination to choose, I decided to come up with some information that I hope you will find useful. Think about your ideal place to stay and relax when you're not busy enjoying some cool activities. Both islands have plenty of amazing traditional style Thai homes, places to suit your budget, from futuristic to barefoot luxury. To the point that you might stop worrying which island to stay on, and rather which cool place to stay in. Again, to make your life easier, I have prepared a checklist for you to have a taste of what each place has to offer.


The checklist needs to consider for choosing a place to stay:

  • How many people with you?
    Knowing how many people will be with you will help you a lot on which villa is perfect for your group.

  • How many bedrooms do you need?
    Since, you already know how many people with you, you will be able to decide easily how many bedrooms your group needed.

  • How many bathroom or comfort room do you need?
    Bathroom or comfort room is very essential to any type of group, whether for a small or large group. But, if you have fewer persons in your group, less bathroom or comfort room would not be a problem.

  • What about amenities? Do you need them?
    Amenities are very important as well if you plan to do many things and stay a little longer. Also, for each villa, they provide different amenities. Also, it will give you more freedom to many things without worrying to bring things for your luxury vacation to any villa in palm springs.

  • Do you have a car?
    Whether you own it or you have rented it, the car park is important as well. Especially for the large group, because most villas have a limited car park or no garage at all.

  • When are you going to check in and check out?
    The date when you check in and check out can have a big difference in how much the villa will cost you. You must plan ahead the time of your check in and check out to avoid any other charges or fees.

  • How much budget do you have?
    Budget is very much important in decision making on which villa you will be staying. Remember, the lesser budget does not mean less fun, it depends on how you will spend your time in the villa. But, it does not mean as well the expensive villa is less good because the expensive villa is more luxury than the less expensive one. Therefore, if your aim is to have a blasting experience to a luxury villa, you must choose a villa that has a worth higher than $1,000, but not more than $2,000 per night. But if your budget is unlimited, then I strongly suggest going to the most expensive villa.
