Ko Samui Sights & Attractions
Ko Samui offers several attractions for visiting honeymoon couples.
Sightseeing attractions on Ko Samui include…
Take a boat trip to explore some of the 42 lush jungle-clad islands that comprise around half of the Samui archipelago.
Once a haven for pirates, these islands boast stunning unspoilt white-sand beaches, pristine coral reefs, unusual rock formations, dramatic limestone cliffs and caves as well as wildlife such as long-tailed macaques, leopard cats, common wild pig and squirrels.
Go kayaking, snorkelling and swimming. Hike across Ko Wua Talab (Sleeping Cow Island) to the island’s summit (430m) for postcard-perfect views, discover hidden lagoons and visit Tham Buabok Cave to see lotus-shaped stalactites and stalagmites.

Hike or ride an elephant along the 5km-long trail from the village of Baan Thurian (famous for its durian trees) to see the tallest and most scenic waterfall on Samui.
Here a 30m-high cascade plunges over amazing purple rocks. Admire the sight then cool off with a dip in the naturally sculpted rock pool at the base of the waterfall.
Ponder the preserved mummified remains of a revered former abbot, Loung Pordaeng, who sits upright in a glass casket in apparently the same meditation position, or mudra, as when he died more than 20 years ago. Watch as devotees offer flowers and incense.
These curious rock formations on Lamai beach – which bear a resemblance to male and female sexual organs – are worth a chuckle and locals are only too happy to recount the legends surrounding the rocks.
