Cruise Ship visitors tours

AIDA Cruises

Snorkelling through coral reefs, exploring Asian forest on the back of an Elephant, shopping at local traditional Thai markets -- all of these shore activities are as much a part of the cruise experience as enjoying the cruise ship.
More than half the fun of taking a cruise line is exploring interesting new places and cultures such as Koh Samui island offers. In your day at Koh Samui you may explorer tranquil and unspoiled islands nearby, visit the island’s local temples with amazing lookouts, discover interesting rock formation, and take a ride throw coconut and Asian forest in the back of off road truck or top of an elephant.

The island has unofficially been named "Coral Island" for its abundance of coral and marine life including giant clams, fan corals, sea turtle and wide variety of colorful tropical fish who live in and around the protected coral reefs.
