The Land of Smiles is undoubtedly a natural paradise. Thailand is known for its many islands all boasting tropical perfection. One of these marvelous islands is Koh Samui, the second largest island in the whole country. It lies in the Gulf of Thailand, off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus. There are three fascinating features that you can see and explore on this island: crystal blue waters, mountainous rainforests, and temples with golden statues. We can’t neglect to mention the luxury resorts, posh spas, and other amenities in every nook and cranny of the island that you can savor and experience as well. If you’re off to the island of Samui, here are five viewpoints that you simply have to include in your travel itinerary:


Lat Ko Viewpoint

If you want to see the spectacular panoramic ocean view of the island, you can visit the Lat Ko viewpoint. This viewpoint is located between the Lamai and Chaweng Beach on Route 4169. Here, you can take a walk along the path towards the rocky coastline. As you do so, you will be able to see the glowing blue water meeting the clear sky in Chaweng Bay. It will undoubtedly be a breathtaking horizon and a magnificent sight to behold! If you want to experience the beauty of Lat Ko Viewpoint fully, you can come and visit the place at the crack of dawn to witness the majestic sunrise.


Khao Hua Jook Pagoda Temple

Khao Hua Jook Pagoda Temple is another famous temple to visit in the island of Samui. This temple is located atop the holy Chom Dao Mountain. However, before reaching your destination and experiencing nature’s bliss, you have to prepare for your trip to the mountainous area. You will have to hike up the hills as there is no public transportation to the top. Even private transportation seems to be a challenge to find. Before you reach the top, you will have to endure the steps all the way up to the temple. Once you get there, however, all the huffing and puffing will be well worth the time and effort. You will be able to enjoy the beautiful Chaweng Lake and the breathtaking views of the coastline, as well as the panoramic views of the towns below.


Wat Phra Yai Temple

One thing that the island boasts of is the Wat Phra Yai Temple and its gigantic golden Buddha statue. The statue stands proud and tall amid the test of time. It is very symbolic. Wat Phra Yai Temple temple is located near Koh Samui International Airport, and even from afar, you can already see the enormous statue from within the airplane. However, the temple has much to offer, other than the impressive sculpture. You can also see the stunning views of the sandy beaches reaching up to the point of the nearby island of Koh Pha Ngan.


Paradise Park Farm

Next on the list is the Paradise Park Farm. As the name suggests, it is a paradise in itself, beautifully set on the Khao Pom Mountain. The park has walking paths that are spread across 20 acres of the tropical forests. Here, you can cross paths with some deers, hedgehogs, and birds. You can also rest from walking and relax by the infinity pool with your family. Turn your eyes to the views of the neighboring islands across the clear ocean. Ultimately, Paradise Park Farm can be an unforgettable experience for both adults and children.


Lamai Viewpoint

Finally, the Lamai Viewpoint is one of the much-coveted attractions on the island of Samui. If you’re up for worthy postcard snapshots, this may be just the perfect place! You can take the stone path and stairs that lead to the astoundingly beautiful views of the rocky coastline and blue waters. You can also enjoy walking barefoot on its soft white sand as well as appreciate the views of the lush green mountains. It is located near the Lamai market, so you can walk to the top of the viewpoint right next to Grandmother’s Rock.
