Koh Samui, Thailand | Overseas Haven Report
Koh Samui, Thailand’s second-largest island, is a cartoonishly tropical paradise. White sand beaches with coconut trees? Check. Mountains, jungles, and waterfalls? Check. Monkeys, mosquitos, and tree snakes? Triple check.
A little over 70,000 people inhabit Samui, with about 8,000 being expats from the U.K., Western Europe, Australasia, and other countries. Unlike other parts of Thailand, the average age of expats in Samui is much lower than in other tourism hubs like Pattaya or Phuket.
People who want to live an active lifestyle but at a slower pace should consider spending some time in Samui. With sun, sand, seafood, and boatloads of Thai charm, it’s a top overseas retirement choice. Discover Koh Samui in this Overseas Haven Report.
