Koh Samui was the peaceful getaway I had been looking for. The beaches provided scenic shores laden with unearthly rock formations amidst crystal clear water. This island was an adventurers playground and I managed to avoid all crowds whatsoever by traveling in September during the low season. Despite a lack of accessible hiking on Koh Samui, there are a number of spectacular viewpoints, giving you the opportunity to gaze out over the forest or the vast ocean. Inland, coconut laden fields provide stunning scenery during leisurely motorbike rides.
