Samui is similar to Phuket in a lot of ways, but the island is smaller and there are less people and tourists here.
There are many fine resorts and hotels in Samui and most of them are located either right on the beach, or not too far away. Many of the hotels and resorts in Samui are for people who want to come here to relax and you will find these all around the island.
There are some hotels around the Chaweng Beach area that specifically cater for young party people who want to have a good time and these hotels even organize transportation to the Full Moon Party which is located on the neighboring Koh Phangan. You will see many young people partying at all hours of the day and night in the lead up to the party which is held once per month.
Koh Samui has some wild nightlife in the Chaweng Beach area with many bars, pubs and nightclubs that aim to please single males who are looking for a good time and the main area is called Soi Mango.
There are your usual bar girls here that will pounce on you as you walk past and try to lure you into their bar.
In comparison to Phuket, the nightlife scene in Samui is much smaller but still big enough to keep any single male happy.
There is an international airport at Koh Samui and the set up and style of the airport is totally unique with hut style roofing and terminals that have no walls and this gives the airport a tropical feel.
So if your considering a nice holiday with beautiful scenery and fantastic weather, then Samui is well recommended.
