For a more adventurous experience, head out of town and visit Khao Pom. You'll discover an almost uninhabitable tropical jungle surrounding one of the largest mountains on the island. The hike to the viewpoint is a challenge, and rewards you with an unparalleled panorama of the island. Prefer waterfalls? Hin Lad Waterfall is just two kilometres from town. It's easy to get to through a short track winding into the jungle, and has a great swimming hole to refresh in the cool mountain water. If you venture further south, don't miss Na Muang Waterfall. It's simply spectacular as towering falls of water rain down into the pools below.
On Saturday evenings the seafront plaza in Nathon Town transforms into a busy walking street. Stalls overflowing with local food and products are jammed in tight with clothes and souvenirs. Strolling through the bustling crowd you get to experience the real Thailand, a must if you love absorbing the local culture on your travels. Finish up a day of sightseeing with a relaxing massage in one of Koh Samui's best spas.
No trip to Koh Samui is complete without visiting Nathon Town. It's the capital of the island, and only a short flight to Koh Samui away. Choose from our great range of Nathon accommodation, and all you'll need to worry about is packing!
