Know More about this tour
Samui is perhaps best known for its relaxing influence with its beaches and magnificent resorts. Depart from your resort by 4-wheeled pick-up truck to explore the âadventurous heartâ of Samui. Reach the inner heart of Koh Samui, filled with the most beautiful natural surroundings. Via unpaved paths but not an issue for our specialized means of transport where we pass a variety of plantations (e.g. rambutans, mangosteens, mangoâs and bananas are grown) before reaching our first stop of the day.
In the morning, head into the direction of Lamai to observe one of natureâs peculiar wonders; the âHin Ta Hin Yaiâ translated as the Grandmother and Grandfather rocks shaped like male and female genitals, a popular fertility symbol. Ample time is reserved to take pictures of one of the islandâs most visited and recognizable spots. Located along the same beach, the famous Guan Yu Chinese shrine has been revered by many who call Samui their home; the importance of this shrine lies in the same line as the Big Buddha Temple. Like its larger brother (Phuket) on the other side of mainland Thailand, Samui has quite a number of rubber tree plantations. We walk around one of these plantations to see what it takes to get the rubber saps out of the tree before it is turned into consumer products.
Supporting the elephant in the most sustainable way is an important aspect of this day and the elephant camp we include in this tour does precisely that. Witness the amazing skills of the national animal of Thailand and the work that has been done to preserve one of Thailandâs national symbols. Walks along a local waterfall (depending on the time of the year) and visiting a local home where its residents live of the coconut business, half of the day has passed and time for an excellent lunch at a local restaurant. We move on after lunch to Ta Nim, also called the Secret Buddha Garden, located in a small valley and where various Buddha images are displayed in a well-kept garden.On the way back to the hotel, weâll stop and visit the Islandâs most memorable landmark, the Phra Yai (or Big Buddha), built in 1972. This colossal statue, that can be seen from afar, has been a major landmark and a point for devout residents to pay respect and pray for good health and fortune. A fitting end to an adventurous day that will leave great memories with you and your travel companions and we transfer you, of course, back to your hotel at around 4pm.
