HIGHLIGHTS

Our tour is arranged for you to enjoy a stress free and pleasant day traveling around the island, enjoyed in a Luxury Van or Private Car with 5 star service!

Hua Thanon Traditional Muslim Fishing Village. Famous for its produce market and one of Samui’s last remaining fishing fleets. Most of the population of this particular village are Muslim, having their ancestry in the south of the peninsular. Here you can still glimpse Khor-lae, a traditionally built boat with multi-coloured hulls and intricately carved prows.

Wat Samrat Guardian of the ancient White Marble Buddha. One of the most picturesque temples in koh Samui & the Secret Hall of the 50 Buddha’s. These images have come here from across Thailand, India and Myanmar. Many of these statues are highly valuable and the hall remains locked. We have arranged with the Munks to let us view these Images.

Coconut Farm We visit an authentic coconut farm where you will see the monkeys at work and get a taste of the fresh milk from coconuts hand delivered by the monkeys themselves. In the past, most of the locals made their living in the coconut farming business. Today Samui still export more than 1 million Coconut’s yearly to the rest of Thailand.

Wat Khao Chedi This ruined Srivijaya-style monument had been forgotten about for many years. Now, the overgrown path leading to the chedi has been cleared and there’s easy access. You get spectacular views from this vantage point including mainland Suratthani, Bang Kao Bay all the way to Laem Set Point and Koh Tan.

Nathon Town The old capital is Nathon, on the southwest coast of the island. It remains the major port for fishing and inter-island transportation. It has a charming pace, and is almost small enough to walk everywhere. Nathon’s middle street beholds many old Chinese shop houses whispering an exotic history.

“A great tour of the real Koh Samui away from the tourists”

We booked the private version of this tour for 6 of us – 5 adults and one 7 yr old. included in the price was the following:
Air conditioned mini bus
Unlimited drinks and snacks in the van including seasonal fresh fruit
Tour guide
Lunch at a lovely, family run hilltop restaurant with a great view
Cocktails at a beach front restaurant late afternoon

You see a really good range of places on the tour including a real coconut farm which was really interesting. You are mostly away from the main tourist areas which was good and the food at lunch time was really yummy.

This was one of my best days on Koh Samui.

My 7 yr old cousin did get a bit bored and tired towards the end of the day but loved seeing the monkey at the coconut farm and feeding the elephant near the waterfall.
