Thailand's second largest island really packs a punch. There are highlights aplenty and you'll experience them all in one morning. See the famous landmarks – Big Buddha and Guan Yu Koh Samui shrine, the natural wonders of Grand Ma and Grand Pa rock, and Na Muang waterfall. And there's also the mummified body of meditating monk Luang Pho Daeng.
The first stop is Big Buddha. This temple is home to a huge golden statue of Buddha, and you'll also have impressive views of the surrounding island from the lookout point. Next, you'll head to the rock formations of Grand Ma and Grand Pa – fashioned by the elements into huge sculptures, they create a lot of amusement.
Then, you'll see the Guan Yu Koh Samui shrine, which celebrates Chinese heritage. You'll also be able to pay your respects to the mummified body of meditating monk Luang Pho Daeng at Wat Khunaram. The last stop of the day is at one of the Na Muang waterfalls.
