Attractions

Big Buddha Koh Samui

The bustling city of Bangkok offers so much to see and do. There are over 400 temples to explore as well as cultural demonstrations, traditional Thai cooking classes, floating markets, bargain shopping and some of the largest shopping malls in all of Southeast Asia. Of course no visit to Bangkok would be complete without going to see The Grand Palace. Home to the astonishing Wat Po, a huge gold covered Buddha statue measuring 15m and 46m long, the palace was once the home of generations of the royal family and is now a highly respected memorial covered in intricate glass and porcelain mosaics.

Koh Samui’s most popular attractions are its beaches, it’s relaxing atmosphere and its affordable massages, however the island also features a number of natural attractions and sightseeing. Located at the southern end of Lamai Beach, Grandfather and Grandmother Rock is an amusing natural attraction and popular photo opportunity. Visible from shore but also accessible on a boat tour, these rocks derive their name from their male and female appearances.

The island also features several waterfalls, particularly in the mountainous interior. Na Muang Falls is the tallest and a twin fall, where water cascades over unique purple rocks. Although easily accessed from the road, another popular way to visit the falls is on an elephant trek.

For a shot of culture and history, visit the 79 foot tall golden Buddha statue at Wat Phra Yai and enjoy incredible views of the north coast at the top of a flight of 72 steps. At ground level there are also crafts, clothing, souvenirs and snacks available. Nearby Wat Plai Laem features the renowned 18-armed Buddha and a surrounding lake home to fish which visitors are allowed to feed. Another popular temple, Wat Khunaram is famous for the mummified monk who sits in the lotus position to the right as you enter. Encapsulated in a glass case, the monk sits exactly as he was when he died.

If you prefer to get close to nature, the Samui Monkey Theater, Samui Aquarium, Samui Snake Farm, Samui Butterfly Garden and Tiger Zoo are all popular attractions. For an insight into the flora and fauna below the water’s surface, the Ang Thong National Marine Park is a wonderful place to swim, snorkel and scuba dive.
