4 Activities to Do to During Christmas & New Year in Koh Samui

The Christmas season is just right around the corner, and so is New Year! What better way to spend such a special occasion by treating you and your family on a trip to Koh Samui? There is plenty that will thrill your senses, and we guarantee that you will have a wonderful time.

With that said, here are four things you can do in Koh Samui for the Christmas season and New Year.

1. Escape the Cold, Enjoy the Warmth

If you’re living in an area that promises sub-zero temperatures during winter, it might be the time for you to leave the place for a while. If you dislike the cold, a trip to South-East Asia is an excellent opportunity to enjoy the warmth of the tropical forests. You don’t have to worry about missing out on the Christmas festivity among the Thai people, for the locals love this time of year as well.

Even though the majority of Thai people are Buddhist, they still love to celebrate the spirit of Christmas, sharing gifts and going out to spend time with friends and family. Tourist attractions are also guaranteed to be adorned with the colors of Christmas, and you’ll see plenty of colorful twinkling lights everywhere.

2. Go out for Shopping

When you come to Koh Samui, don’t fill your bags to the absolute brim with stuff. In fact, bring empty luggage if you can, as there are just so many Christmas presents you can purchase here and at low prices.

From T-shirts to artworks, there are plenty of great gifts you can bring back home to adorn yourselves, your home, or even give to your friends and another family. To add more spice to your shopping experience, head over to the center of Chaweng, and enjoy big brand names inside the shopping mall.

There are also ongoing events there along with plenty of Christmas decor to remind you that you’re here in the right place at the right time. If you’re lucky, you might land a few sales on items you’ve been longing to buy, and even better way to spend Christmas.

3. Watch the Fireworks

Fireworks are plentiful, especially in the New Year. The Thai people love fireworks, and they will prove it to you, as wherever you go during this special occasion, there’s plenty of big bangs and booms going on. If you hate fireworks (or loud noises for that matter), you can still enjoy a peaceful New Year’s celebration by a beachside restaurant. There are plenty of beach clubs and bars in Koh Samui, so you don’t have to worry about not being able to enjoy a peaceful evening.

4. Enjoy a Splendid Dinner

There is plenty of food to be enjoyed in the area. If you do not have a large pocket, there are cheap options that offer wonderful-tasting local foods. If you are sporting 50 different credit cards, there are luxurious options available, as well. However, that money isn’t going to book you a spot in a restaurant if it’s full, so make sure to make your bookings much earlier to save you and your family a wonderful evening.

There are just so many things you can do in Koh Samui during this festive time of the year, and it is going to take a hundred pages to write it all. Explore the island and discover all the wonders it has to offer to you.
