I need a few bits of information about what to do on a one-day stop (8:00 am-5:00 pm) in Koh Samui, on a cruise stop in February.
Sightseeing tour -- Spa visit -- Cooking Class -- Elephant Trekking
What would you do in the amount of time we have?
1. Is this a good place to go to a spa, instead of a sightseeing tour? I've looked at several spa menus (Absolute Sanctuary, Eranda Herbal) on line, but I'm not sure how far from the cruise terminal any of them are located. Is this a good activity for a short stay and will I have any problem getting to and from the spa? Is there a different spa you recommend?
2. Cooking Class --- SITCA or other?
3. Elephant Trekking--yes or no? I've read disparaging comments, but maybe it would be fun?
Thanks a bunch,
