Hin Ta and Hin Yai
Just 10 minutes from the resort to the south of Lamai Beach, Samui's second largest beach, you will find these stone formations. Infamously resembling genitalia and christened Grandfather and Grandmother, the rocks are a source of great merriment to locals and tourists alike.
Wat Phra Yai
At Samui's northern end, on a small rocky island linked by a causeway, is Wat Phra Yai, translated as Big Buddha Temple. Constructed in 1972, the modern Buddha (sitting in the Mara posture) stands 15 metres high and makes an alluring silhouette against the tropical sky and sea. Nearby, a new temple, Wat Plai Laem, features an enormous 18-armed Buddha.
Ang Thong National Marine Park
Discover the Ang Thong National Marine Park, cruise past several of the 42 islands and enjoy the natural beauty of this untouched region. After a one-hour ride, the first stop will be in the northern part of the marine park for some snorkeling. Continue sightseeing to the island of Koh Mae with its amazing emerald lake in the mountain. Climb up the stairs to the view point and enjoy the surrounding views.
