Don't like the fact that the public is pretty much blocked from accessing the beach. Only guests of the hotels and beach-front restaurants get to enjoy the beach. Horrible land management policy.

One of the most popular attractions on the island, it is definitely worth a visit.

A cool giant Buddha. One more in Thailand. Not much more around, but worth the stop.

This gorgeous beach is away from all the hustle and bustle and offers a stunning view of one of the largest golden Buddha statues in Thailand. If your looking for a low key experience then look for a place to stay on this beach. This has always been my secret hide-away on Koh Samui ;-)

An interesting Samui icon. Shopping in the surrounding area is great.
