What you can expect
Discover Thailand’s second largest island and its abundant beaches and marvel at coconut trees with hanging fruit on a full-day discovery tour of Koh Samui.
Start with a visit to the lakeside temple of Wai Plai Laem and admire a stunning feat of ancient Thai-Chinese architecture. See the giant statues of the Guanyin and Laughing Buddha before going to the Big Buddha Temple, known locally as Wat Phra Yai. Look at the gold painted, 12-meter high statue of Buddha.
Continue to Chaweng Viewpoint (also known as “Lat Ko Viewpoint”) for panoramic views of Lamai and Chaweng Beach. The enchanting sunrise on Chaweng Bay is definitely a treat for the eyes. Admire the rock formations of Hin Ta (Grandfather) and Hin Yai (Grandmother), shaped like male and female genitalia. The whole area is adorned with oceanside rocks that are perfect for some quiet beach time.
See a mummified body of the Thai monk, Luong Pordaeng, sitting in a meditative position in a glass case at the Mummified Monk. For the Thais, it is an act of reverence and reflection, and an acceptance of the natural order of things.
Admire the cascades of the Na Muang Waterfall as they fall into a natural pool, ideal for cooling off from the day’s heat. Explore the island's capital at Nathon, and get a wonderful opportunity to absorb Thai culture on the constantly buzzing streets. Catch the gorgeous sunset as it dips in the west before returning to your hotel.
