Situated along Southern Thailand’s spectacular coastline, Koh Samui offers the best examples of beach culture. Derived from the Chinese word “Saboey” to mean “safe haven”, Samui was a remote haven for fishermen, sailors and sea traders sheltering from storms and high seas in the late 1800s. Mainly of Chinese and Malay origin, these early settlers speak Pak Thai, a unique dialect in the south that still survives till this day.
