Sightseeing - on Samui Island

back

- Grandmother & Grandfather rock:

(Hin Ta& Hin Yai) are located at the end of Lamai Beach. These rock formations are honored by the natives as, let’s say, fertility symbols.This spot is also well liked by the tourists. On both sides of the small path, which leads down from the road to the ocean, you find numerous tightly fitted booths with souveniers, jewelry, and refreshments. Close to the rocks rounded granit blocks build a small flat comfortable rock pool, where one can splash around in.

- Laemsor Pagoda:Laemsor

 On the premisses of Wat Laemsor is a pier with an artfully constructed padoga directly at the rocky shore.With its uncountable yellow tiles it looks like it is out of gold from a distance. It’s located in the far south of the island on the road between Ban Tale and Ban Pang Ka.

 

- Overlap Stone:

The Overlap stone, not far from Hin Ta & Hin Yai is an excellent overlook point, but a little difficult to get to. The path up is very steep and you can only drive it half way with a vehicle. The last 500 meters you have to walk. But if you endured the difficult ascend, your reward is a glorious view onto the southern coastline of Koh Samui. You find the path to the overlap stone on the highway 4169 behind Hin Ta & Hin Yai on the right side of the street (there is a sign at the turn-off).

- The old house:

The old house in Ban Thaley is built completely out of teak wood. For wood and wood house lovers! Built more then one hundred years ago in one half day and without nails. The oldest house on the island. Exquisit style and charm.
