Visiting Samui: What are your tips? And some questions of my own

I'm getting ready to visit Thailand. I will start in BKK, but everything is already planned and figured out with that city. My next destination is Koh Samui, and even though I've planned many things, I still need to keep doing so, and furthermore, I'd like to get your tips and if you could answer some questions of mine.

First, these are the places I want to visit and things I want to do in Koh Samui:

Take a tour to the Ang Thong Marine Park, it looks fabulous from what I have seen online and I definitively want to live the experience my self.

Explore the best beaches of the island. So far now, I've been hooked with Bophut, Lipa Noi, Silver Beach Chaweng and Lamai.

I also want to visit Koh Tao, it looks so amazing!

The secret buddha garden is also in my list.

And of course, I also want to visit the temples and monuments of Samui: the big buddha, wat plai laem, etc.

I'm also looking for a gym, because I will stay here for a while, around 3 weeks, because this trip to Thailand is mainly for chilling and relaxing, so I want to stay in this beautiful island for a while, but I also want to work out: what gym would you recommend to me?

Also, what restaurants are your favorite? I'd like a place that serves both international and Thai food, and please, suggest me several :p

Finally, what are your favorite clubs? I won't be going out every evening, but I definitively want to experience the nightlife scene a little.

That's all, I hope you can help me, thanks!


I need to search more on my own, and fortunately, I've come up with some answers for my questions. I still want to know what you have to suggest guys, but I will add them here to keep track:


I'm looking for something that has excellent equipment and a large variety of classes, and fortunately, I've found something that comes very close to what I want and it is Koh Fit Thailand. I'm still on my search for other options, but so far now, they meet my requirements and the place looks pretty good.


So far now, I've been recommended to visit the following restaurants: Supattra Thai Dining, Tree Tops, 2 Fishes Samui and Red Snapper. They look pretty good and the reviews are encouraging, so I'm adding them to my list.


I've been reading about Full Moon parties, and I will be on time for one of them, so I will assist and experience it myself. Apart of that, I also have found a list of must-go places in Samui during the evening: Ark Bar, Bar Solo, Sound Club and Super Sub Club.
