Would Santa Build a Sandman? – Christmas Events in Samui You Have to Attend

So, you’ve said #NotThisChristmas to getting stuck at home with your “well-meaning” auntie who desperately wants to know when you’re going to meet a nice boy (or girl) / have beautiful babies and make her kind of like a grandmother / have more babies, and go to Samui instead. Excellent choice. We applaud you.

The question, however, becomes what will you do with yourself on Christmas? You know, other than experiencing one of the eight reasons we love Samui over the holidays. Well, we’ve rounded up all the best events happening on both Christmas Eve and Day. Scroll down to find out what you’ll be getting up to:
