PureSpaces Travel Diary: Koh Samui

How fortunate are we to be able to travel all over the world? This year alone, we have covered a large chunk of India, Dubai, Germany and very recently Thailand. Since travel is a big source of creative inspiration, we thought we would dedicate a category within our blog solely based on our international adventures. So first up, we have Koh Samui!

One of the largest islands off of mainland Thailand, Koh Samui, is the sweetest, quaintest sea side town. As soon as you land, you are greeted by swinging palm trees, rolling hills and funny looking vacation trams to transport you to and fro. This trip was all about minimal action and maximum recuperation with good food and numerous pool side naps. We did manage to do a little bit of shopping and nightlife in Bangkok before we got home. We haven’t gotten our fill of Thailand - is that even possible? We have much explore, from a meal at Gaggan to shedding a tear at the sheer beauty of Siam, Bangkok.

Here we have compiled all the pictures from the trip and our recommendations for places to visit. Make sure you visit the Wharf for dinner at Baracuda and a drink at Cocotams and dessert at The Cliff. The Banyan Tree, located in Lamai Beach was the perfect place to stay with terraced cottages in vernacular style over looking the bay. With our PureSpaces mascot as company, the week breezily floated by and now you can catch us back in action on Instagram or Facebook.
