Day Tour Island Tour by Minibus - Tour of Cruise Ship
Join our island day tour of cruise ship with the top attractions on Koh Samui. The mini-bus island tour is the perfect way to explore Samui, if you do not want to be on the road yourself and have a limited budget.
The tour includes visiting the Guan Yu and Big Buddha temples and viewpoints around the island. You will visit the Grandfather and Grandmother Rock, the mummified monk, sightseeing, and visit the capital Nathon. Finally, there is also a jump in the cool water at the Na Muang waterfall.
This excursion takes place daily and was specially developed for cruise passengers. All cruise ships that visit Koh Samui as part of their tour are included! As a rule, there are always free places available as long as you can still select your desired date! In very rare cases, orders can overlap and can be canceled or reimbursed promptly.
Pick-up at the pier
We will pick you up in an air-conditioned minibus at the port and then guide you to the first stop of the trip, in the north of Koh Samui. Our partner is waiting (will be updated) at the meeting point of the port of Nathon until your arrival! (Meeting Point!!) It is assumed that you will reach the meeting point on time! Very important! - Your shore excursion begins!
1st Stop. Wat plai laem
The Wat Plai Laem is the largest Buddhist temple complex in Samui and shows Guanyin, the goddess of mercy and compassion. Here you will get an insight into Chinese-Thai beliefs as artistic Buddhist themes and architecture. The temple and the art techniques used to create it are centuries old and based on old beliefs.
2ndStop. Big Bhudda
The 12 meters high Big Buddha was opened in 1972 and is the symbol of Koh Samui. It is located in the northeast of Samui on a small island (Koh Fan) which is connected to Samui by a bridge. Here you can buy souvenirs and see the monks. From there you have a sensational view of the coast and the Bangrak pier.
3rd Stop. Hin Ta & Hin Yai
From here we will drive to the famous grandfather and grandmother rocks in the south of Samui's island. It represents a bizarre rock formation that is reminiscent of the male and female sex. You will get more information or the prehistory of its origins on-site from our multilingual, trained tour guides.
4th Stop. Mummified monk
A special insight into Thai culture is the mummified monk Luong Pordaeng. He died in 1973 in a meditative sitting position. The body of the deceased, who has died for over 30 years, shows hardly any signs of decay and is on display in a glass display case in the temple Wat Khunaram in the south of the island.
5th Stop. Waterfall 1
The Na Muang Waterfall 1 is one of the most popular waterfalls on Koh Samui. Due to its large natural swimming pool and high water level all year round, many visitors and locals come to watch the natural spectacle. In contrast to many other waterfalls on Koh Samui, the access here is very easy.
6thStop. Local market
The last item on the program takes place in Nathon, the capital of the island. Here we visit one of the local markets. Locals and tourists come to the market to order fresh vegetables, various delicacies, sweet desserts, souvenirs, and various traditional dishes. The behavior when negotiating prices at souvenirs should always be friendly and associated with a smile.
Drop-off at the pier
You reach the port of Nathon in an air-conditioned minibus at around 2:30 p.m. Since this is an excursion by our partner, our usual back-to-ship guarantee is void.
