SAMUI ATTRACTIONS

Sort by:

All the Top Attractions of Koh Samui are usually of either natural or religious properties. There are many view points and waterfalls, huge boulders, cozy coves, hidden from the prying eyes. There are Buddhist and Chinese temples, pagodas, and even mosques on Koh Samui and besides getting purely aesthetic pleasure of seeing them, visiting such places literally energizes you with peace, kindness and understanding.

Actually, this why we love Samui so much - not for the abundance of entertainment but for its nature and the unique atmosphere of tranquility and relaxation offered by some of the best hotels and resorts in Samui. Compared to other resorts in Thailand, there aren’t too many attractions on Samui especially for the entertainment lovers. Most of them can be visited as part of excursions around the island of Koh Samui - a crocodile and snake farms, monkey show and elephant safari, bungee ride or Jetlev Flyer and ATV riding.

Some of these attractions on Samui intended for entertainment can be visited not only with a guided tour, but also on your own (which is even better - you will have more time to spend with animals and nature). For example, Paradise Park Farm and Aquarium and Tiger Zoo. But do not expect such attractions to be something magical and supernatural. Everything here is very simple, nice and "home-like".

For you to be able to independently explore Samui, visiting all its best parts, there are descriptions of almost all the attractions of Koh Samui, presented in this section and accompanied with detailed descriptions of how to get there and / or Google-coordinate. Some of the places listed in this section are perfect for one thing - a photo-shoot on Samui. You will have some really nice professional photos there, but by and large there is not much to do there.

We recommend that you read the section "Beaches of Koh Samui".

There is also an article about what the weather on Koh Samui is most typical for a particular season.

We publish all the latest news - stay tuned!

Only a positive person would say "I do not regret that I went there!". And rightly so we must find something positive in everything. Someone will find a fountain, someone - a waterfall, someone - a flower. And for those bored tourists who are annoyed by the lack of butterflies and can not find them in the garden there is a special shop, where butterflies are found, pinned and attached to the box >>

Lat Wanorn Waterfall

Of all the waterfalls on Samui Lat Wanorn is the only waterfall, where water does not exactly fall, as strange as it may sound. For such natural objects there is a name "rapids" - a flat rock with water flowing along its surface.You can get to the waterfall with any form of transport or even on foot. It is located on a relatively flat terrain, so that you will not have to climb up the stairs as it would be with Secret Falls and Namuang. From the ring road to the very Lat Wanorn there is an excellent concrete road, which is actively used by local residents. >>

Overlap Stone

Samui has a giant stone (Overlap Stone), which has it own website - http://www.overlapstone.com/ It is not easy to find though there are many people who want to reach it personally. We are goping to explain in details how to do it. To get to the Overlap Stone on Koh Samui turn towards the mountain opposite the Sila Ngu temple (Wat Sila Ngu) - this is a "red temple", which stands at the ring road, just before the Wat Kunaram (temple with the most famous mummified monk - all in all there are three monks on the island). Almost to the very stone there is a good concrete road which any scooter can handle. The road itself is very steep, but the beauty around will compensate your efforts. >>

Samui Aquarium

 
Samui Aquarium

This is definitely a place for children, and you need to come here for at least several hours. Children will see the show with animals, take pictures with sea lion pups, feed a small tiger with a milk formula from the bottle, see turtles swimming in the water, and even chat with the monkeys. Kids will love this place. We believe that adults will not be disappointed as well. Just dont expect it to be anything like the Aquarium in Bangkok. >>

Tan Rua waterfall or Secret Falls

This is one of the best waterfalls on Samui which totally worth walking in the mountains. Almost all the waterfalls on Samui are not ideal, but Tan Ruea is a waterfall in its classical form. Charming, deep and securely tucked away in the jungle away from crowds of tourists. Its official name is little known and the tourists and the locals prefer to call it the Secret Falls. >>

Tartain Waterfall

 
Tartain Waterfall

Tartain Waterfall was discovered at Koh Samui in 2010 and was named after the landowner, Mr. Tar Tain. For example such waterfalls as Khun Si Waterfall and Ta Nim or Tar Nim Waterfall also bear the names of the landowners in whose land the attractions were discovered. It is a small stream flowing from two noisy rapids into a backwater with a sandy bottom. The main advantage of the waterfall is its deepness, at any time of the year, except in April (the hottest month of the year). Around the backwater there are towering cliffs, covered with moss and greenery, creating a cozy backdrop for the eyes. And for some reason there are absolutely no mosquitoes. With luck, you will spend at the pond two or three hours in complete solitude. And what is the best activity at a deserted place next to the beautiful waterfall in the jungle? Swimming of course! >>

Valentine stone, Lamai View Point and Siva Tara Waterfall

Valentine stone on Koh Samui is a vivid example of a nature based tourist attraction in which enterprising locals were able to see something that can be beautifully packaged and sold to the tourists. In addition to the stones and the surrounding infrastructure (a fairly large cafe, a free uncovered parking with five parking spaces and toilets), there is an observation deck (Lamai View Point), which is certainly worth a climb. There is also a cable or "bungee" ride in this area. Also located on site is a small waterfall (Siva Tara Waterfall) with a dam and a few fish-peeling massage spots for 250 baht per session (here it is called Funny fish). >>

Zong Ruea Waterfall

There are eleven waterfalls on Koh Samui of which only three are of an impressive scale: Namuang (both halves), Secret Falls and Hin Lad. All the others look rather modest and are not of interest to the most tourists and thereby attract a small amount of those who favor of such quiet beauty. We welcome independent travelers, and encourage their curiosity in the study of Samui. So we are going to tell you about even the least sought-after, but still interesting parts of the island. >>
