A perfect island holiday or – the Thai island of Koh Samui meets all tourist needs. Especially after 2004, when the big tourist centres in Thailand were destroyed by the tsunami, the third largest island of the country experienced a huge rush of visitors. The idyllic island was virtually unaffected by the giant waves, and evolved from the former paradise of the opt-out to the tourist stronghold. The most popular clubs are the Reggae Pub, ARK Bar, the Brewery, and the Green Mango.
