5 Hidden Attractions to Discover in Samui - Channel your explorer's spirits

The island paradise of Koh Samui is heaven on earth for beach bums looking forward to getting their slice of sun, sand and sea. Lying beyond the stunning beaches are some hidden wonders awaiting discovery. Traverse the untravelled paths and immerse yourself in the perfect tranquillity.


Lamai Overlap Stone - Behold the spellbinding natural phenomenon

Exploiting the rules of physics, Overlap Stone is a gigantic boulder balancing itself in a precarious position. Perched above the dense jungle, overlooking the picturesque Lamai Beach, this wondrous natural phenomenon is a true feast for the eye. It is not only the enormous rock that will have you captivated but also the awe-inspiring backdrop set by the eastern coast of the island. One thing that you should not forget to bring with you on this adventure is your camera. You are bound to capture some drool-worthy pictures that will have your followers hitting the like button.


Wat Khunaram - Indulge yourself in a dose of Thai culture and history

The Southeast Asian Buddhist country of Thailand is hailed worldwide for its glittering temples and golden spired stupas. These historical sites of immense religious value have become bustling tourist attractions that draw hordes of visitors every year. Staying off the beaten track, the tranquil Buddhist temple Wat Khunaram has managed to keep itself from being swamped with tourists. While Wat Khunaram isn't among the string of famed Thailand temples, it houses one of the most precious treasures of Thai Buddhists, a mummified monk that dates back to 1973.


Silver Beach - Unwind on the laid-back sugar-white shores

Tucked away in serenity, the picturesque Silver Beach is the place to be to soak up the pristine, white sandy shores of Koh Samui, free from lively crowds. Boasting a 250-metre-long, palm-fringed stretch of sand, you have enough and more beach to enjoy for yourself. If living a stone's throw away from the turquoise blue waters sounds like the perfect tropical getaway to you, consider staying at a beachfront resort in Koh Samui, including the likes of Avani+ Samui Resort.


Na Muang Waterfalls - Unleash your inner adventurer on an exciting adventure

Na Muang Waterfalls is not one but two waterfalls nestled in the depth of a dense tropical jungle. While the first waterfall can easily be accessed by any tourist, getting to the second waterfall will require you to unleash your inner intrepid adventurer. The white cascading waterfall plunging onto the massive purple rocks and into the natural pools alone is a wonderful feast for the senses, but the trek that leads to the waterfall is just as exciting.


Laem Yai Beach - Lose yourself in the perfect tranquillity

If you are a nature lover in search of pristine, untouched settings amidst the touristy island paradise, nothing gets as pristine as the peaceful beach of Laem Yai in Koh Samui. At this beach, you can bask in the sun and lounge under palms until the sun goes down to soak up those gorgeous sunsets.
