Hailed a tropical paradise, Samui’s blinding white-sand beaches and sparkling turquoise waters provide a panoramic backdrop for beach weddings and enrich business gatherings. Over the years, Thailand’s third largest island has become a chic hotspot for combining business and leisure, attracting corporate travellers who want more than the standard MICE options.
Vows exchanged against the pristine beauty of the Gulf of Thailand, or meetings in a venue overlooking the sea – InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam offers unforgettable MICE experiences combined with signature Thai hospitality.
Things to do in Samui
When all the work is done, indulge in Samui’s natural delights and attractions – from hikes in a lush, overgrown rainforest to diving amongst technicolor reefs to kayaking serene seas. Samui is also home to an upscale health spa scene and a thriving nightlife.
Home to Samui’s best shopping, entertainment, dining and nightlife venues, Chaweng’s beach is lined with restaurants and bars. Always buzzing with activity, the district has numerous attractions, including muay Thai boxing stadiums and Soi Green Mango, a street known for its lively nightlife.
Lamai is the island’s second busiest town and resort area, offering one of the island’s loveliest beaches and a selection of restaurants, shops and bars. Lamai’s Night Plaza is a bustling open-air bazaar of street food, souvenirs and local crafts.
This traditional fishing village has developed into a charming site for strolling, eating and shopping. The traditional core of Bo Phut retains a local seaside-town feel with old, wooden houses and rickety structures.
The 12-metre tall Big Buddha statue at Wat Phra Yai is the most popular landmark in Samui. Built in 1972 the Big Buddha temple is located on Koh Faan, a miniature island connected to Samui’s northeastern coast. The temple is not only a tourist attraction but also Samui’s centre for cultural and religious ceremonies.
