Hire a car (For the whole family)
The island is very accessible by car and will only take you about an hour to go around the main coast road. Many people hire jeeps or if the kids are old enough you could go for a scooter. Daily hire is pretty cheap why not visit one of the many waterfalls or see ‘Big Buddha’? These are bound to be highlights of your Thailand travel experience.
Mini Golf (For the whole family)
You can find mini/crazy courses at Bo Phut in the north of the island or there one around Chaweng Beach. These are both great ways to keep you kids amused on your Thailand holiday. If the real game takes your fancy there are also a couple of 18 hole courses including the well known Santiburi Country club and the Royal Samui Golf & Country Club.Family Samui

In the north of the island around Bo Phut there is a large outdoor track that caters for all ages and has different engine carts depending on ability and age. Great for keeping the boys smiling on your Thailand trip. Family Samui
