Finally booked our first trip to Koh Samui!!

Hi all

I have been searching through the forum for Koh Samui, and finally booked two weeks in Koh Samui!

Flying with Singapore Airlines and staying at the Banana Fan Sea Resort. We leave in just over 8 weeks.

Now to plan our activities during our stay!

Just one question, do we need a visa to enter Thailand from Australia? It's been years since we travelled to Phuket, and I can't remember if we had one or not.

Thanks in advance - Wayvan

You don't need a visa as you will get an automatic visa waiver for 30 days when you enter by air (15 days when overland).

You'll really enjoy the Banana fan, the beach in front is wonderful and you're only a 5 minute walk from central chaweng.
