A yoga vacation on Koh Samui can include plenty of other activities. Temples abound in Thailand and they serve as a bright, gold reminder of the importance of the Buddhist faith in this deeply religious country. There are various sights to visit from small, unassuming temples to the grandiose Big Buddha.

If some retail therapy is called for, there are a number of night markets and a long walking street in Bophut where you can pick up some new yoga pants and then revive yourself with a dinner of fresh, local fish.

Because of its size, renting a car or motorbike is the most sensible way to explore the island. A bewildering array of beautiful beaches are easily accessible, and why not drop in on a studio that offers yoga classes to round off your day trip on Koh Samui.

What Yogis should know about Koh Samui

South East Asia can sometimes be intimidating for vegan and vegetarian visitors as the perception is that meat and seafood are central to most dishes. However, with a bit of research and plenty of patience, you will find that Koh Samui has plenty to keep the plant-based yogi happy and well-fed.

A cornucopia of fresh, tropical fruit is harvested on the island, so the local markets should be your first stop. What’s more, with the growing number of upmarket and budget vegan restaurants and cafes on the island (often attached to a yoga studio), you should find your needs are catered for.
