It’s a big Phuket Island, offering all manner of things to do. It’s surprising that so many holiday makers, who are trying to get away from it all, soon get bored with that dreamy combination of a perfect beach, a comfortable hotel room and great food. After a few days, most people want more. They want to go places, to see how the local people live and to experience new things.
If you’re interested in the native culture here on Koh Samui, consider a night at the buffalo fights. During your travels around the island, you might have even seen one or two of the hefty competitors peacefully grazing in a grassy field or being walked along the roadside by their owners.
