Top Tourist Attractions in Koh Samui you Must Definitely Visit – Time to ramp up your adventures

Koh Samui is one of the locations in the world that people from all backgrounds visit. So, whether you are a multi-millionaire or a backpacker wondering how to get to your next destination, it welcomes you with open arms. Here are some of the best places you can visit during your stay!


Check out The Wat Phra Yai

Also known as the Big Buddha Temple, this temple is located on the island of Koh Phan, which is found north of Ko Samui. Standing at close to 39ft tall, this golden Buddha statue was set up in the 1940s. During a visit, you will find yourself surrounded by meditation practitioners and devotees who are hoping to make some form of an offering.
This site is now considered a major landmark for the region. It sits atop the Pratumnak hill surrounded by a beautiful ocean.
If you are looking for a beachfront pool villa in Koh Samui and end up at the Avani+ Samui Resort, you will find yourself about a one-hour drive away from this attraction.


Don't forget the Ang Thong National Marine Park

When it comes to experiencing the best that Koh Samui offers, it would be a bit to miss out on the vast swathes of biodiversity that the region had to offer. The Ang Thong National Marine Park is one of the protected archipelagos of the 42 islands. It offers visitors a stunning spectrum of vistas from limestone mountains, lush jungles, waterfalls, surreal lakes as well as plenty of hikes to be enjoyed.
This all falls within a 100 square kilometre island and provides a home to various exotic animal species, fauna, and flora.


Wat Khunaram

The Wat Khunaram may not be every traveller's cup of tea. The simple reason for this is that while a temple offers a stunning view of its surroundings, it is also well known across the land for its 'Mummy Monk'. As can be imagined, many people do not enjoy the sight of a mummified monk; however, on the flip side, it is believed to offer a deeper understanding of the realities of life and an understanding of Buddhism.


Hat Lamai Beach

If you are travelling through Koh Samui, then one of the things you must witness is the splendour of this little getaway called Hat Lamai. This site is also quite well known but is probably most renowned for the natural rock formations that can be found in its vicinity. Hat Lamai offers a brilliant sanctuary for those who simply want to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet.


Fisherman's Village

Situated close to Lamai, this is a gathering place with vibrant energy and excitement. Many travellers enjoy exploring the stalls and food that is on display for all to see. With plenty of entertainment, there is always an opportunity for a good time; you simply need to embrace it.
This is also an ideal place to gather some souvenirs during your visit as well!
