Samui International Airport (USM)
Samui International Airport is an open air facility consisting of two terminals, one for domestic and one for international. There are no aero bridges and although this is one of Thailand’s busiest airports it is quite small is size. Ground transportation into the city is readily available and ferries to nearby islands and the mainland are close by.
Koh Samui off the eastern coast of Thailand is just one of many islands that make up the beautiful Ang Thong Marine National Park. Long stretches of idyllic beaches and swaying palm trees line the brilliant coast where colorful coral reefs lay enticingly close for an exciting day out snorkeling and swimming.
While the interior of the island is mostly dense rainforest, the setting lends itself to a beautiful scenic oasis rich in native flora and fauna. Na Mueang is a picturesque waterfall about 30 minutes outside of the city and neaby villages grow beautiful fruit where coconut trees tower over the landscape. Exclusive resorts pamper guests while exciting night life options range from bars and night clubs to trendy, soft lit lounges. No matter what time of day, there is plenty to see and do in this tropical paradise.
