2018 Koh Samui Events Calendar: Island Calendar [Updated Often]

Who’s super organised? The 2018 Koh Samui events calendar is here – ready and waiting for anyone clever enough to plan their holidays 6, 9, or 12 months out. Are you more of a last-minute sort? You’re in luck – Koh Samui is often a last-minute kind of place. Below, you’ll find annual Koh Samui events, holidays, festivals and 2018 Full Moon Party dates.

I update this calendar regularly as new or last-minute events are announced. Enjoy!
