Another name for this garden in Samui is the Secret Buddha Garden for this place was actually constructed by a durian farmer somewhere in the 70s. Offering its many visitors perfection wrapped in a bow, this garden is an ideal place to spend an evening in Samui.

When it comes to good beaches there are so many names in the list however the most popular ones are the Chaweng Beach and Lamai Beach, mainly because most of the finest resorts are located around these regions.

Find Buddha's Footprints

The spiritual side of Koh Samui is just as intriguing as everything else it has to offer. Temples are found in abundance here and you get plenty adorning every nook and corner of this city. However there is one particular attraction which even though is not a temple per-se, attracts a plethora of devout Buddhists from all over the country. Situated in the vicinity of the Butterfly Garden, in a hilltop shrine, one can come across not one but FOUR footprints that is believed to be that of Lord Buddha's which are layered on top of one another. To actually witness this remarkable sight you need to get to the very top of the temple. It is true that there are several steps to climb but the unmatched panoramic scenery you can witness from the top adds to the rewards of finding Buddha's footprints and is definitely worth all the effort of getting there.
