Also many of the temples on Koh Samui are worth a visit. It has many of it on Koh Samui.
Under "temples" I show you the nicest, biggest and above all the temples which are worth a visit.
Let`s come to the Koh Samui attractions. Here some Koh Samui travel tips...
Who was on Koh Samui and has not visited the Big Buddha, that means he was not on Koh Samui.
The Big Buddha is the landmark of Koh Samui.
At this point I would like to point again to the rules of etiquette in temple visits.
On Koh Samui you will find much nicer temples, however, as is already mentioned the Big Buddha is the landmark of Koh Samui.
The statue of the Buddha is unbelievable 12 metres high and was built in 1972.
Around the temple you will find countless souvenir shop.
Should you be at the Big a Buddha, not far away is the Wat Plai Laem Tempel, by far absolutely one of the nicest and biggest temple on Koh Samui.
Called Hin Ta Hin Yai in Thai, or also Grandfather and Grandmother rock, it concerns the rocks which have the form of the male and female genitals.
A nice place!! Before the rock there is a small shopping street in which you can buy coconut caramel.
A speciality from Koh Samui and anyway a special souvenir.
To the Na Mueang Waterfall 1 you can drive comfortably by the scooter.
However, here the parking costs 20 Baht. Afterwards these are only five minutes on foot.
In this waterfall you can also have a bath. The cool water is a welcome change on hot days.
To the Na Mueang Waterfall 2 the rise take a little bit longerr.
You can calculate twenty minutes to arrive at the top. However, with a little patience everybody will come on top.
The view is worthwhile and at last one is recompensed for the efforts. On the way upwards you will pass three different places, where you can have a bath.
This waterfall is located in Nathon.
At the entrance there is a small bridge which leads to a small temple.This lies directly with the water.
To reach to the waterfall, nevertheless, a walk before lies to you first of all. There is away nobody more precipitously, for it, but a very long one. You must calculate scanty half an hour. On the way the small washbasins in which you can cool off are found over and over again.
On top come a nice waterfall expects you in an idyllic nature.
Very nicely and also very quietly.
Ang Thon Marine Park exists of 42 small islands. The island group lies only few kilometres of Koh Samui. Day trips take place daily to the national park, however, must divide mostly the excursion with several tourists.
One goes with the ferry on the main islands. There come one can snorkel. Some segments are put back with the kayak.
If one has quite a lot of luck, one sees in these waters pink dolphins.
At one of the main islands there is a magnificent viewpoint (picture). From here one has a view of large parts of the national park. Indeed, the rise is stony to the view punk, is precipitous and also strenuous.
However, now I already say you that the strain is worthwhile, those the view is unbelievable.
