Koh Samui

Koh Samui is a small tropical island in the Gulf of Siam. A hilly, jungle interior with spectacular views and waterfalls takes visitors down to perfect white sand beaches and clear blue water. Sunny skies and calm seas prevail for most months of the year and in particular during the UK summer.

Large parts of the island remain unspoiled, with the tallest buildings rising no higher than the tallest palm tree. At Steppes Travel we chose smaller hotels located slightly away from the main town of Chaweng to ensure our clients experience the best of the area.

There is an excellent golf course and all the activities one would expect for a relaxed island – snorkelling, fishing, mountain biking, horse-riding, sea-canoeing, nature walks and visits to outlying islands. Koh Samui is easily accessed from Bangkok and other major Asian cities so can work well as a relaxing end to your holiday.

Amy Waters

After my degree in Fine Art I didn’t really know what career I wanted or what path I would take. The only thing I knew is that having spent a summer in America it had given me the desire to explore and see as many places as possible before becoming a grown up and entering the real world.

Being from a family with Army connections I can from an early age remember travelling. From camping in Europe and then later being sent to boarding school when we lived in Germany at the age of eight, complete with shorts, long socks, a cap and my suitcase. In appearance not too dissimilar to the children evacuated to the countryside during the blitz. Later, my father’s postings took us to Nepal where we had to transit Delhi and Kathmandu where we were sometimes stranded for days and Hong Kong from where I travelled in 1983 through China for two months.

My first journey for Steppes was in 1999 when I set off to explore Thailand to gather those little details that constitute Steppes Travel’s trademark knowledge. I have since been lucky enough to travel extensively in Southeast Asia, China, the Middle East and India. A few special memories include being joined at dinner by an otter in Laos, proudly being shown an illicit picture of the Dalai Lama in Tibet and diving with manta rays on Christmas day in Indonesia. I’m pretty sure I always leave a country wishing I had done more, seen more, learned more ….. but I also always hope to return …
