Grandfather & Grandmother Rocks (Hin Ta Hin Yai)

These rocks at the south of Lamai beach have been shaped over millions of years by wind and water to resemble human reproductive organs. Apparently, couples that are trying to have a baby should come here for positive vibrations & good energy that will help the woman conceive. In local legend the rocks apparently appeared after two lovers drowned themselves in the sea because their families disapproved of their relationship.

Magic Garden (Secret Garden)

The garden is located in the hills of Samui about 550 meter above sea level and the only way to get there is through the jungle, rivers and mountains by a 4X4 off road vehicles. The Garden was built in 1976 by a local fruit farmer, Nim Thongsuk. He was 77 years old when he started his project. It is said that he built the garden all by himself. The garden is full of statues of animals, gods and demons. The hill-top setting and the tranquil river flowing through it give the garden a very soothing and mystical feeling.

Mountain-top Viewpoint

Namuang Waterfalls

There are 2 Namuang waterfalls, 1 and 2. Namuang 1 is 18 meters high and can be reached by vehicle. Namuang 2 is Koh Samui’s most beautiful, largest and most impressive waterfall, with stunning rock formations and verdant surroundings bathed in a brilliant natural light. Namuang II consist of two separate falls, one with a 20m drop and a good pool for swimming and the other with an 80m drop. The waterfall can be reached only by a short and interesting jungle walk on foot or on top of a friendly elephant.

Luong Por Daeng was a highly respected monk when he died over 35 years ago. A native of Koh Samui he enjoyed a long prosperous family life until he was 50 years old when he decides to devote the last part of his life to the monk hood. After being ordain in 1944, he  became renown for his meditation practice for about 20 years. He was also able to foresee  his own death in1973 when he was 79 years old. Today, he can still be seen in the exact same meditative position he was in when he died.

Big Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Yai)

This temple is the home of Koh Samui’s most famous landmark: the Big Buddha. Most visitors come to marvel at the sheer size and beauty of this remarkable statue at some point during their holiday. Visible from several kilometers away and even from the air or boat when arriving on or leaving  the island , the 12 meter tall golden image stands proud. Entering the temple, you first come to a large courtyard with a dragon stairway on the other side. The stairs lead you up to the second  floor on which the Buddha image sits.
