Explore the Gulf of Thailand on this multi-activity tour, which includes the use of all equipment for snorkeling and kayaking. Booking these activities separately may take some logistical maneuvering; this tour includes both as well as fast transportation to the islands via a large, stable boat. Visit Koh Mae Ko to see the Emerald Green Lagoon (Talay Nai), go kayaking at Wua Ta Lap, see the unusual rock formations in Lotus Cave, and enjoy shallow water snorkeling.

Hard drive up some steep roads but easy to find and GPS is accurate. I'm sure farrang are charged more than Thai but the lady selling tickets would not tell us prices individually. A lovely idea built by 1 man to create a peaceful rest area. Stone statues and Buddha's line a small streamed Waterfall. Great place to get family photo's. 30 minutes was enough to see all and enjoy the calm.

Solo trip to the garden after living in Samui for 3 months. I have to admit that with 80 baht entrance fee I'd have hoped for a better kept garden. There are buildings full of litter and doors rotting away to nothing. All the paths are completely covered in slime and a lot of the statues are too. Some of the entrance fee should be used to keep the garden well maintained and fix the broken statues and buildings. Some information about the statues would be good too. Pretty overrated in my opinion and mosquito haven!

On top of a very small mountain or if you consider it a giant hill of Koh Samui. Lies a small Secret Buhda Garden, mystical at first sight, as well something out of a classic adventure movie. How to get to this amazing place is by going up up hill on some sketchy roads (Note: These roads are under construction as well, some sections range from new, old, and just gravel.) If you uneasy for the trip up under these conditions, then I suggest do not make it. Caution roads are very turns, as well hilly trust me this might make anyone nervous. Drive the speed limit! But for me personally was worth the trip, the views driving up one of a kind as well the excitement! Once you reach location, you will find a small parking lot as well a cafe/shop. For foreigners will cost only 80 Baht free for Thai maybe due to Covid. As you walk down the hill you will get a rush of Adrenalin, and like an spooky feeling. Once you see the wonders down there it will just take your breath away, as you feel uneasy like stepping on holy grounds of sorts. But you see it’s been turned into a amusement park, so you get the feel that this holy soot was tarnished. History: This place was just a normal water fall, and river. Created by a local fruit farmer who dreamed big, created this small park, and was completed 1976. But due to location, as well no one maintaining the location properly, has gained its eerie feel that what is known now. Personally feel like there is something more to this location, so respect it like you would a temple. Truly a one of a kind marvel, for any adventurer to enjoy. Caution where you walk can get hurt from things falling apart. Worth the drive up, as crazy drive down. From this spot you can actually go from one side of the island to the other. So plan your trip to do exactly this! Be safe, and have fun at this amazing location!
