Koh Samui Scooter Round Trip – Thailand
During our stay on Koh Samui, we took a day off to do a scooter round trip of the island to visit and enjoy the different areas. We swam at pristine beaches, ate at a local restaurant, and enjoyed the views at multiple look out spots.
With over 15 years of experience (including driving in Thailand at the age of 16), and having a motorbike drivers license it was a no brainer for me to rent a scooter for the duration of our month long stay on Koh Samui. It was without a doubt the best way of getting around this beautiful island. Ever since visiting Thailand back in 2001, and exploring Phuket Island by scooter, I knew that I wanted to spend some time getting off the beaten track to explore the back roads, and find some hidden attractions.

Riding a scooter in Thailand can be an affordable, convenient and fun way of getting around. As exhilarating as it may be, this mode of transport does however come with significant risks and may not be the best option for everyone.

When visiting Koh Samui make sure to venture beyond Chaweng and Lamai. And if you’re not keen on renting a scooter and driving yourself, then join one of the many 4×4 tours on offer.
