Koh Samui, otherwise known as “safe haven,” is one of the islands located in the Gulf of Thailand. It is one of the largest islands in Thailand after Phuket, covering an area of 229km2. The island is 700km from Thailand’s capital-Bangkok. Koh Samui thrives as a tourist haven, with breathtaking sceneries and long beautiful beaches.
You can get to Koh Samui through:
The big Buddha statue is a majestic, and exotic statue of the Buddha that towers at 12 meters, and that is a must see for all tourists seeking a rich cultural experience. The best time to visit is during the morning when the natives come to give offerings of fruits and flowers. At night the temple is a golden glory that shimmers in the moonlight. Right next the Big Buddha is a tourist market where you can shop for souvenirs.
Ang Thong Marine Park is the place to go if you want to see hundreds of marine creatures. It is an isolated area with beaches and waters which allow for diving, snorkeling, hiking, and sea kayaking.
Locally known as Hin Ta and Hin Yai, these rocks are a fascinating piece of nature. The rocks are shaped like the male and female human genitalia. These rocks are a must see for those visiting the island, not only for their odd shape but also for the rich culture and folklore surrounding them.
Located about 12 kilometers in Koh Samui’s inland, these two water falls are perfect spots for those seeking some adventure and time away from the hot beaches. The water falls are 30 minutes apart, and they both flow to form beautiful pools where you can swim.
These shows depict some pretty interesting phenomenon, where third sex entertainers leave the viewers mesmerized. Dressed up in beautiful costumes and makeup, you can barely tell the sex of the entertainers. The Centara grand beach resort is a major host for these shows.
Created in 1976 by a Samui farmer, the garden is located in Koh Samui’s inland jungle. It has sculptures of deities and people in various poses. Being the highest point on the island, the garden is a great spot to view the rest of the island.
