Koh Samui is located in the lower gulf of Thailand — the area boasts some of the best beaches and resorts in the country.
Big Buddha Temple
Samui's most popular attraction is the Big Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Yai) — named for its 49-ft-tall sitting buddha. The climb to the platform (base of the buddha) is via a staircase (about 73 steps). Once at the top of this historical island landmark, the scenery is stunning.
Legendary Natural Rock Formations
Another "interesting" attraction, located at the south end of Lamai beach, are the legendary Grandpa and Grandma Rocks (known locally as "Hin Ta and Hin Yai"). The natural rock formations resemble male and female genitalia — they say a picture is worth a thousand words!
Nature lovers won't want to miss visiting the spectacular NaMuang Waterfall — the most scenic falls on the island. There are two tiers to the waterfall. The lower NaMuang 1 is easier to reach — and its 98-ft-falls cascade down into a deep pool where you can cool off and go swimming. The larger 262-ft NaMuang 2 is spectacular, however expect a 30-minute trek on foot up steep rock to reach the top — fun for the adventurous! If you don't feel like walking to either tier, an Elephant Trek is another FUN option.
Ang Thong National Marine Park
Ang Thong National Marine Park is an archipelago of 42 islands (northwest of Ko Sumai) featuring massive limestone rocks, caves, tropical rainforests, and hundreds of deserted beaches surrounded by coral reefs.
