What is there to do in KS to keep us busy

Hello everyone, I am trying to organise our holiday for Feb next year. We had been thinking of trying Goa again but I just can't seem to come up with an area I am happy with (in case you have seen all my posts on there and think I am bonkers !)

We had already chosen The Smile House in Bo Phut before we went onto the Goa idea. We are happy with the accommodation choice so don't need any suggestions on other places to stay.

Just to help me make my decision can someone please list the things available to do in KS ? I am worried my 9 year old may get bored? We are in our late 30's and travelling with our 9 year old son. We are fun loving, enjoy live music, I love photography so views are of interest.

We have been to Phuket a few years back (Karon & Kata) and enjoyed the boat trip where you go get into canoes and go into the caves, also we hired a lovely gentleman to take our group around some small islands in his which was a brilliant day. We hired a car and drove to some waterfalls and around the non touristy areas. Found bars with live music and of course ate fantastic food!!. Are these all available in KS - and is there more ?

Please help me !! After hours of research its driving me mad. When you have one holiday a year that isn't cheap you want to make sure its right !

Huge amounts of information

Or Trip Advisors sister website, Virtual Tourist

Looked at other websites . . .

www.myhomekohsamui.com/search…

http://www.kohsamui.org/

http://www.siamspaguide.com/

http://www.kosamui.com/activities/

http://samui.sawadee.com/attractions/

http://www.samuiguide.com/

There are temples, beaches, elephant trekking, jungle trekking, buddhas, shopping, eating, fun, waterfalls, islands, cooking classes, marine park, massages or spa, zip wires, even 2 mummified monks. You can hire a taxi, get a songthew, hire a car or a scooter.

We have trawled and trawled every website for any grain of information prior to our first visit and found lots of things that appealed to us as things to do.

Happy hunting.

We really enjoyed the Nathon walking street, on Saturdays, but you need to get there early because it closes up by 9pm or even earlier. Had a great meal at a local place at the end of the street - good change from all the touristy places on Samui.

Speaking of touristy - we also really enjoyed the Big Buddha, though we were warned against it. It was fun for our teenagers, so a 9 year old would like it, I think.

Dear Floss.

Bob calling from AUSTRALIA. My wife and I are also going in February/March, 2011. I have been 6 times already and love the place. You will find there is heaps to do if you wish or laze around the magnificent beaches if you wish to chill out. One thing I would recommend for you guys if you like snorkelling. Is catch a boat to Koh Tao and have a nice day out snorkelling at a great spot with a nice lunch thrown in. ( Great Day ). I also recommend maybe???? hiring a vehicle and driving all round the island to check it all out. There are breathtaking spots all around the island.

Enjoy.

Regards Bob.
