Itinerary

Nodding palm and coconut trees line the pristine beaches while both famous and hidden attractions are discovered in pockets of this island. Wake up refreshed to catch some sun on your half day tour of Koh Samui. Slip into light summer clothes prepped up with hats and sunglasses as you make your way to the lobby. Eat a hearty breakfast, if provided, at your hotel before your tour, to recharge yourself while a private vehicle shall be sent to pick you up. Your first stop would be at the spectacular Grandmother and Grandfather rocks (Hin Ta & Hin Yai). These natural rock formations, surprisingly close to each other are located at the Hat Lamai beach and resemble the male and female genitalia. The beach itself is less bustling than the others and offers clear views of the Andaman Sea from its shores.

After this, visit a different side of Samui at the coconut plantation where you walk through the tall trees as you watch playful monkeys picking coconuts. Even try some young coconuts that have sweeter nectar than the regular mature ones. As you pass through, you can observe the locals making coconut milk by hand and even learn how to do so yourself. This can be done at your own pace as the tour is exclusively for you.

This enriching tour is followed by a visit to a small temple called Wat Kunaram which houses a mummy relic of a monk who passed away, and still is, in the lotus position, a cosmic state that transcends both time and religion. Serene and composed by this peaceful place, head over to the Na Muang waterfall, where the cascading waters emerge from under the covers of the jungle, creating a cool and refreshing area of mist and rocks.

Nathon, the island's main town will be your second last stop, with enough time to wander around the lively streets with wooden Chinese shophouses and inviting aromatic restaurants. Once you have wandered around to your fill, start back towards your hotel while making one final stop along the way. The majestic Big Buddha golden statue gazing down at the people. Symbolizing purity and enlightenment, this marks a positive end to an interesting tour, before you are chauffeured back to your hotel.
