813. Koh Samui Part 2 | Koh Madsum / Pig Island

koh madsum pig island
Koh Madsum (or Ko Mat Sum) is an island about half an hour boat ride from Koh Samui, known for having some pot-bellied pigs roaming around! We booked a long-tail boat which took us to a snorkelling spot then here to spend some time with the pigs. It was so much fun and the pigs were so cute. I didn't expect them to be so huge. There is a beach bar on there and you can also buy snacks to feed the pigs.

The reason why there are pigs there is because a Thai man found a family of 4 pigs at a livestock market. He felt bad for them so decided to rescue them and let them live a happy life on the island. Since then there have been a few generations born. The island is still fairly new for tourists. Apparently it only started to gain popularity less than a year ago. I highly recommend a visit if you're ever in Koh Samui. It is such a unique experience!

The snorkelling stop we did first. Of course I stayed in the boat since I can't swim lol. I was on fish feeding duty. We got some bread to throw out to them which attracted a lot of fish.
