History And Culture Of Koh Samui

We are not makers of history, we are made by history. Let's explore it!

The primary pioneers of the island are accepted to be anglers from the Malay Peninsula and southern China who dwelled here around 15 centuries ago. It is demonstrated on old Chinese maps as 'Pulo Cornam'. Nobody truly knows how the present name came to fruition. A few people say the word 'samui' originated from the Malay word 'saboey' which means place of refuge. Ko is a typical prefix as it is the Thai word for 'island'. Prior to the twentieth century, the island was an independent network and was confined from the others, including the terrain of Thailand. There were no streets, which implied that traversing the island included a one-day trek through the mountains and wildernesses. The island's economy presently depends on the travel industry just as the fares of coconut and elastic. The quick development of this district has brought it thriving, as well as offered ascend to real changes to its condition and culture.

Thai culture is a standout amongst the most brilliant and fascinating societies with regards to the world. The island of Koh Samui has an extraordinary culture that despite remaining conventional continues evolving. Religion, the government, nourishment and nightlife all have a section to play in the content that makes up Koh Samui's way of life. Celebrations are of extraordinary significance on the island. The terrific festivals are the Chinese New Year in February, Festival of Light (Loi Krathong) in November and Thai New Year (Songkran) in April. Christmas and New Year are likewise celebrated with extraordinary eagerness and accordingly attracts a great many guests from everywhere throughout the world.

Trip Was Really Awesome & Wonderful With Flamingo!

Hello. I'm very delighted to share my experience with you all regarding honeymoon trip which was arranged by Flamingo Transworld.
Right from the beginning of the tour from planning to landing back to home, the journey to Thailand was really awesome and wonderful with flamingo
Every staff member especially Rishikesh bhai, Hiralben and Amit bhai  incorporated themselves as if it was their own trip. I was little worried about my trip initially as it was my first international trip, but Constant assistance which was provided by Amit bhai 24×7 throughout the trip made my journey very lucid. 
I literally didn't face any single damn trouble during the trip and all credits goes to flamingo. I look forward to arrange so many trips with these guys and would heavily recommend flamingo to every passenger who seek their domestic and international trips.
