If you prefer to view a different side of nature, you can scuba dive and see the magnificent marine life and underwater topography of Thailand. Sail Rock, and Koh Tao are some of the best dive sites north of Samui. Sail Rock only extends 5 meters above the surface, but it’s the 30 meters below that you really must see. Koh Tao is also home to hawksbill and green turtle nests, and is an important part of the Thai ecosystem.
