Tour Itinerary

09:00 - Hotel Pickup

An air-conditioned vehicle will pick you up between 9:00 a.m. and 9:45 a.m. at your specified accommodation, followed by collection of other participants, before the trip begins.

- Wat Bo Phuttharam

Perched atop a two-tiered structure overlooking a tranquil man-made lake, the Statue of the Praying Monk, Luang Phor Thuad, pays homage to the legendary monk who lived in southern Siam over two centuries ago. The revered monk is said to have performed a miracle by transforming seawater into fresh drinking water using only his foot, to save stranded survivors of a shipwreck on their way to Bangkok. This captivating story adds to the allure of the statue, which serves as a testament to the power of faith and compassion.

- Wat Plai Laem

The Wat Plai Laem is a remarkable temple complex, the largest of its kind in Koh Samui, Thailand, that showcases the prominent Chinese-Buddhist figure of Guanyin, revered as the goddess of mercy and compassion. A visit to this awe-inspiring temple provides an opportunity to gain an insight into the fascinating Chinese-Thai beliefs as well as to marvel at the unique artistic Buddhist themes and architecture. The temple is a testament to the rich heritage of Thailand, with the art techniques used to create it dating back centuries and based on ancient beliefs.

- Lad Koh Viewpoint

Located between the beautiful beaches of Chaweng and Lamai, Lad Koh is an extensive viewpoint and one of the most popular attractions on Koh Samui. It offers visitors an unforgettable panoramic view of the stunning beach of Chaweng and the breathtaking Gulf of Thailand. The site is also renowned among locals, who often visit the nearby memorial early in the morning to offer their prayers and respect.

- Hin Ta & Hin Yai

After enjoying the stunning views at Lad Koh, we will head towards the south of Koh Samui to see the famous Grandfather and Grandmother Rocks. These unique rock formations bear a resemblance to male and female genitalia, and our knowledgeable tour guides will provide you with fascinating information on their prehistoric origins. With their multilingual skills, they will ensure that everyone in the group can appreciate the significance of this natural wonder.

- Guan Yu Shrine

In the south of Koh Samui, between Lamai and Hua Thanon, lies the magnificent Guan Yu Shrine. This 16-meter bronze war statue, built in 2016 by a Chinese islander, is a celebration of Chinese heritage. It is a sight to behold, set in a sprawling temple complex with charming souvenir shops and delightful restaurants at the entrance. With its grandeur and beauty, it's a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to Koh Samui.

- Thai Lunch

Our island tour continues with a visit to a lovely beachfront restaurant located in the south of Koh Samui. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Thailand while indulging in a scrumptious, authentic Thai lunch. The menu includes delectable dishes such as fried chicken, vegetable with oyster sauce, sweet and sour chicken, fried rice, and a selection of seasonal fruits.

- Mummified Monk

At Wat Khunaram, in the southern part of the island, you can witness a unique glimpse into Thai culture through the mummified monk Luong Pordaeng. Even though he died over 30 years ago, he remains in a meditative sitting position, and his body shows minimal signs of decay. Visitors can view his preserved body in a glass display case at the temple, making for an intriguing and rare experience.

- Na Muang Waterfall 1

Na Muang Waterfall 1 is undoubtedly one of Koh Samui's most sought-after natural attractions, frequented by tourists and locals alike. It is a picturesque cascade, complemented by a vast natural swimming pool that never runs dry. Unlike some of the island's other waterfalls, it offers easy access and a hassle-free experience, making it a popular spot for people of all ages to bask in the island's natural beauty.

- Elephant Feeding

We have planned a highly nutritious meal for the two elephants, ensuring their well-being. You will have ample time to interact with and feed the elephants, an experience you won't forget. Witnessing an elephant up close and personal, and feeling its cold, rough trunk is a remarkable moment. We will spend approximately 40 to 50 minutes here.

- Baby Buddha Jaidee

The Khao Chedi (also known as Baby Buddha Jaidee) temple area boasts the most magnificent view of Koh Samui. Situated atop a hill at the end of Bang Kao beach in the south of the island, it provides breathtaking vistas of Bang Kao Bay and the enchanting neighboring islands of Koh Tan and Koh Madsum.

17:00 - Hotel Drop-off

At approximately 5:00 p.m., our knowledgeable guide will accompany you back to your designated accommodation, ensuring a safe return. One by one, all other participants of the exciting day trip will be dropped off until the entire travel group has arrived at their respective destinations. It's the perfect way to conclude an unforgettable adventure on Koh Samui.

*Additional Fees & Notes

To ensure your comfort during the temple visit, we recommend wearing lightweight clothing. Please note that when visiting temples, it is important to dress modestly and cover your shoulders and knees as a sign of respect to the local culture and customs. Let's all make an effort to be respectful and appreciate the rich history and traditions of Koh Samui.
