Koh Samui island is a popular sun-sea-beach tropical holiday destination in Thailand, located off the east coast, and part of the Surat Thani Province.
As for Thai traditional cultural trainings you can find ample options for learning Thai Massage, Muay Thai, Thai Cooking, and Thai Language, to name a few. However, Vipassana Meditation training on Koh Samui is rather scarce, certainly when compared to Chiang Mai, the so-called spiritual capital of Thailand in the North.
Yet, in past years, we have seen that commercial Wellness and Yoga Retreats and Resorts also embarked on offering Mindfulness and Open Meditation workshops, sessions or packages, including sometimes options for Thai Buddhist Vipassana Meditation training. Such likewise is the case on Koh Samui.
