Samui In View: Some Good Reasons to Visit Koh Samui in 2020

Thailand’s “coconut island” has come a long way since it’s hippy hey-day in the 1970s. Today, jet-set travellers rub shoulders with the tabloids’ favourite celebrities, while major golf events and regattas have become annual pilgrimages.

So, now you’re thinking about a lazy leisurely holiday on this tantalizingly tropical island? Only question is … when to go?

February
Samui Open Beach Volleyball
Bounce along to North Chaweng Beach on 21- 23 February to catch some 40 to 50 teams from around the world competing in this annual beach volleyball tournament. And when the spikes, digs and blocks are all over and the sun begins to set, expect some carnavalesque party fun at the brand new Seen Beach Club.
Strawberries or Spa in Samui?

February is strawberry season in Thailand, and so Banyan Tree has tastefully tied in a fruity theme for its Valentine’s Day Afternoon Tea, featuring strawberry mille-feuilles, macarons, tarts, cheesecake, scones and cream, and even chocolate-covered strawberries, all washed down with sweet lashings of strawberry champagne cocktail. An afternoon tea set for two comes in at 1,699 baht nett (USD56). Or alternatively, why not look to lay back with your loved one at this idyllic resort, soaking up a Romantic Escape massage and spa package for couples? In addition to a one-hour massage of your choice, you can wallow in a 30-minute romantic bathtub for two, and luxuriate over a 30-minute body scrub (promotional price 13,500 baht nett till 29 Feb.)

May
Samui Regatta
Few international events have put Koh Samui on the map like the annual regatta which attracts more than 500 sailors, mostly from around Asia, at this time each year. Hosted in 2020 for the first time by Synergy Samui’s La Vida Resort, the event is the biggest and most competitive sailing race of its kind in Asia. Perch yourself anywhere along the eastern coast of the island from 23- 30 May – preferably with a set of binoculars – and set your sights on some competitive and intricate yacht racing.

September
Samui Festival
A kaleidoscope of parades, culture, music, food and fun for all the family is in store at this 5-6 day event, the dates of which are yet to be officially announced. However, we do know that the Samui Festival Marathon will take place at 5am on Aug. 30, so expect the fun n’ games to begin soon after. Singing competitions, a beauty contest, artwork, handicrafts, Thai boxing bouts and Buddhist ceremonies are all part and parcel of this colourful extravaganza. Perhaps the highlight of the week is the array of street-food stalls where you can sample and savour some of southern Thailand’s most exotic delicacies, such as maret’ leaf rice cooked in a bamboo tube, oysters, fruits, and super-sweet desserts.

November
Loy Krathong – The Festival of Lights
Thailand’s most exquisite festival is a time when Buddhists float banana boats on the river to take away bad luck and worries, while praying for a better year ahead. And nowhere could be more majestic to join the ceremony than at Chaweng Lake on Koh Samui on the night of 1 November when you make your own Krathong, or banana boat, with the help of locals. And of course, there will be music, street stalls, and much merriment all round.

Koh Samui enjoys a year-round climate heaven-made for beach-lovers, High season is Cool Season – that’s from Christmas through to March, and by “cool” we mean a gentle breeze, and a gorgeous 29-30 °C (84- 86°F) sunshine to bask in. April and May are the hottest months, but then again, you have the Songkran Water Festival on April 13-14 to cool you down. June through to September is thoroughly pleasant with light showers every other day, and October- November is the low season with its monsoon rains.

2020年来苏梅旅游的一些好建议

泰国的“椰子岛”自20世纪70年代的嬉皮士时期以来已经有很长一段时间了。如今,乘飞机的旅行者们与小编最喜欢的名人们擦肩而过,而主要的高尔夫赛事和加塔斯已经成为一年一度的朝圣之旅。

所以,现在你正在考虑在这个诱人的热带岛屿上度过一个慵懒的悠闲假期?唯一需要考虑的问题是…什么时候去?

二月

苏梅沙滩排球

2月21日至23日,我们前往查文北部海滩,与来自世界各地约40到50支球队将进行一年一度的沙滩排球锦标赛的角逐 。当沙滩到处都是挖掘和堆建的时候 ,太阳开始落山,期待在全新的Seen海滩俱乐部会有一些嘉年华派对乐趣。

苏梅的草莓还是SPA水疗?

二月是泰国的草莓季节,因此,悦榕庄在情人节下午茶中以水果为主题,以小草莓、马卡龙、馅饼、奶酪为特色蛋糕,烤饼和奶油,巧克力覆盖的草莓,再加上草莓香槟鸡尾酒的甜蜜冲击。两人一套下午茶,价格为1,699泰铢(56美元)。 或者,为什么不考虑在这个田园风光的度假胜地和你的爱人躺在一起,享受情侣专属的“浪漫私奔”按摩和水疗套餐呢?除了一个小时的按摩外,您还可以在一个浪漫浴缸里泡30分钟的鸳鸯浴,并再享受30分钟的身体磨砂。(促销价格为13,500泰铢,活动截止到2月29日)

五月

苏梅帆船比赛

很少有国际赛事能像一年一度的帆船比赛那样,在每年这个时候吸引500多名水手参加,其中大部分来自亚洲各地。2020年首次由苏梅岛Synergy拉维达度假村主办 ,这是亚洲最大和最具竞争力的帆船比赛。从5月23日至30日在岛的东海岸的任何地方停留——最好是用一副双筒望远镜——然后把你的目光瞄准一些有竞争激烈的帆船比赛。

九月

苏梅旅游节

在这场为期5-6天的活动中,将为所有家庭提供游行、文化、音乐、食物等乐趣项目,其具体日期尚未正式公布。不过,我们确实知道马拉松将于8月30日凌晨5点举行,所以期待有趣的游戏很快就会开始。歌唱比赛、选美比赛、艺术品、手工艺品、泰拳赛和佛教舞蹈等都是丰富多彩的旅游节的一部分。而这一周最大亮点就是琳琅满目的街头小吃,在那里你可以品尝到一些泰国南部最奇特的美味佳肴,如用竹筒煮的马叶米、牡蛎、水果和超级甜的点心。

十一月

水灯节

水灯节是泰国最精致的传统节日。是日佛教徒会在河上放水灯,寓意带走厄运和忧虑,同时祈祷未来一年更顺利,再也没有比这更壮观的景象了。参加仪式的时间为11月1日晚,地点在苏梅岛的查文湖。届时你在当地人的帮助下做了一个属于自己水灯,或香蕉船。当然,仪式当天还会有音乐舞蹈表演,夜市小吃,四周都充满了欢乐的节日气氛。

苏梅岛享有一年四季的气候天堂,适合喜欢海滩的人,旅游旺季是凉爽的季节-从圣诞节到三月,我们所说的“凉爽”指的是温和的微风,以及在适宜的29-30°C (84-86°F)阳光下晒太阳。虽然四月和五月是最热的月份,但是,4月13-14日的宋干节(泼水节)可以给你降温。六月到九月是完全令人愉快的,因为每隔一天都会有小雨,十月到十一月是季风雨的淡季。
