Know More about this tour

The tour starts in the morning pick-up from your hotel and the first stop isLady Monk Temple & Big Buddha Temple.Koh Samui is home to many old Buddhist temples and Chinese shrines, including two impressive religious landmarks: Samui Big Buddha - a massive 15-metre seated Buddha overlooking the sea on the northeastern coast and, in the same area, Wat plai laem, a superb temple featuring a striking white 18-arm statue of Guanyin, the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion.Big Buddha isthe base of the tall statue is a courtyard and vendor area where amulets, religious artefacts, clothing and souvenirs are sold, and there are two more Buddha images set in pavilions. There are also food stalls and small restaurants to enjoy a snack or a meal. A staircase with a colourful, striking dragon design leads up to the platform area on which the Buddha sits. Buddhist devotees come daily to make offerings of fruit and flowers and light incense at the base of the statue, while curious tourists are welcome come and to observe these graceful religious rituals any time of day. The next stop isGrandfather & Grandmother Rocks isthe strangest tourist attraction in the world.These two rocks formation in Thailand looks respectively like male and female gentalia. A short narrow alley lined with souvenir stalls leads from the main road to the rocks. You actually end up on Grandmother's belly, where a crevice has been worn into the rock to form granny's legs. The Grandfather Rock, a penis shaped pillar, is about 25 metres to the south.Despite the silliness that the stones induce, the spot is actually rather beautiful, with turquoise waters in pools among the rocks. Further enjoy the Monkey show Koh Samui is synonymous with coconut trees - there are literally plantations all over the island, and until tourism arrived, coconuts were the main industry here. In the Southern Thailand provinces, monkeys work for humans in the harvesting of coconuts. Being expert climbers and having quick skills, the monkeys are great helping hands of a farmer.The next stop isNamuang Waterfalla majestic set of two cascades on Koh Samui, show that the islands beauty is not limited to its beaches. The first waterfall, Na Muang 1, flows down into a pretty natural pool that provides a cool escape from the heat. About 30 minutes by foot further uphill is the smaller yet equally inviting Na Muang 2. Shop aroundat Nathon Town buySouvenirs .Nathon is also the only place on Samui to find 'head' shops selling opium pipes, bongs, king size rizlas and all other manner of dope paraphernalia.

    We had a great time. Our tour guides were friendly and happy to answer questions. The temples were definitely the highlight of the day. The waterfall was a disappointment. It was very busy and the area hasn't been cared for as well as other tourist sites.

    The tour was great in general as we hit all the main tourist spots in one day.
    The only downside being the amount of time we spent in each location, we found ourselves hanging around a lot after visiting each site.
    Also, i dont think it added any value going to the view point between Chaweng and Lamai for 20 minutes.
    Overall though, i would recommend it...
