Taling Ngam is situated on the west coast some eight kilometres south of Nathon. A relatively quiet area but ideally situated to enjoy the sunsets to the west over the Five Islands and watch the ferries running between the mainland and the island. Few restaurants but these include “The Five Islands” on the beach and the recently renovated Intercontinental Hotel. Allow a minimum of 45 minutes to the Airport and 15 minutes to the Ferry Port in Nathon.
The Ridgeway at Sanh Kiri Kham
Sanh Kiri Kham, meaning "community on a mountain ridge" is an exclusive hillside development set on about 200 rai overlooking the calm southwestern coast of Koh Samui. Shaped like a slightly undulating dragon, the 3-km long ridge offers unparalleled views of the mountainous mainland coast stretching from Nakorn Si Thamarat to Surat Thani. Closer to shore, the 180º vista embraces the islands of Koh Taen, Koh Matsum, the Five Islands, Koh Pahruay and the Angthong Marine Park islands. The lush green mountaintop land abounds in coconut and mature trees and offers panoramic views from every vantage point.
