7 Best Things to Do in Koh Samui - For the Ultimate Beach Vacation Overseas!

Koh Samui is one of the ideal beach destinations in Asia. This beautiful island in Thailand has so much to offer you apart from its beaches. Here are some of the best things you can indulge in when in Koh Samui.


The Big Buddha

The massive statue of Lord Buddha, called the Big Buddha, is an iconic place of the island. So you definitely cannot miss the twelve-meter massive statue of the golden Buddha when in these parts! Besides, when booking Koh Samui hotels, make sure to choose a good location where you can go to and from these epic tourists attractions easily. For instance, you can choose properties like Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort.


Namuang Waterfall

The Nammuang waterfall is set in a breathtaking location in the jungle. And that is why many people visit it to take in all the beautiful sceneries. These are two waterfalls. The first one forms a natural pool, where you can have a good swim. This second one, on the other hand, is also breathtakingly beautiful. So don't miss out on it.


4WD Jungle Tours

You must also enjoy the incredible Koh Samui by going on Safari tours. This will take you through the depths of the jungle here, and you can have an adventurous time exploring places like Buddha's Magic Garden, Namuang Waterfall, Mummified Monk and so on. There will be a guide who will accompany you and explain all that you see.


The Secret Buddha Garden

Nim Thongsuk started to put up statues in this land which began in the year 1976. These were in the lands he owned which were also tucked away from the public at the centre of this island. As they were surrounded by green forests and plantations, many people were unaware of it! Today, tours are organised that can take you to these lush green gardens for a fabulous experience!


Angthong Marine Park

Another popular tourist destination out here is the Angthong Marine Park. And you'll understand its popularity as soon as you see the jaw-dropping sceneries it boasts of. This excursion will take an entire day. The incredible coastline is absolutely awe-inspiring! Make sure to take the hike up the Mae Koh for epic views of Emerald Lagoon. You can also go on a snorkelling expedition at the Wua Talap Island!


Wat Plai Laem

When in Thailand, you must visit magnificent temples to be truly impressed by the sights. This temple actually was recently built and has utilised techniques and designs which was incorporated in ancient temples for centuries. The temple is enclosed by a beautiful lake, which makes the sceneries all the more gorgeous!



Koh Samui is also a destination much loved by the divers. The epic collection of underwater creatures can make anyone feel humbled and truly enjoy the vivid colours and life that live here. If you never dived in the open oceans before, don't you worry, there are many dive schools that can train you to take on your first dive!
