The famous Koh Samui Facebook group ! "SAMUILOCALS - Everything first-hand!" - Come and join us!
Overall 20 years of local experience, we are one of the leading tour operators on the island. Licensed by the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) under number 33/06350 and registered for arranging tourist services, we love helping you to organize your holiday day trips on the island of Koh Samui. Sunny greetings!
This half-day adventure in Samui is one of the best trips on the island. Watch the well-trained macaque monkeys harvest the coconut. Ride on the elephant through the beautiful nature and refresh yourself while bathing in the waterfall. In the 5 hours program, suitable for all ages, there are many impressions and interesting attractions to see.
This activity takes place daily and is specially developed for hotel guests. Unfortunately, this activity is not available for cruise guests! As usual, 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 refunded promptly.
Pickup at your Hotel
We will pick you up with an air-conditioned minibus between 10:20 a.m. and 11:20 a.m. at your specified accommodation, and then guide you in the south of Koh Samui. Step by step, all other participants are collected for this activity until the entire travel group is completely together. Then your adventure begins!
In the beginning, we drive to the spectacular elephant riding in the south of the island of Koh Samui. On one of the trails through the middle of the tropical undergrowth, the elephants are led by one of the long-established Mahut's. The animals are never left unattended and are well looked after. The muscular pachyderms are showered with cool water and fed between.
The stop at a hidden waterfall is always a particularly memorable event. Here you have the opportunity to refresh yourself and cool off. Koh Samui has many waterfalls which have different water levels due to the different seasons. They are particularly beautiful to look at in the rainy season between November and January.
Monkey´s at work
Koh Samui is one of the largest coconut islands in the world, so today we give you an insight into how the trained macaque monkeys help with the daily coconut harvest. Without the useful, nimble helpers, it would sometimes not be possible to harvest the ripe coconuts. Here you will also learn a lot about the coconut and its components.
Tiger zoo / aquarium
In the huge area, you have the opportunity to see various attractions. The next visit for you are on today's daily program: a visit to the only tiger zoo on the island, then to the aquarium where you can marvel at a variety of exotic sea creatures and, last but not least, there is a unique bird show.
A special insight into the 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.
Hin Ta & Hin Yai
From here we will drive on 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 then find out more information or the prehistory of its origins on-site from our multilingual, trained tour guides.
Then it goes to a nearby Thai restaurant. A traditional lunch is served here. There is guaranteed to be something for everyone and you do not have to worry that the dish may be too spicy. Asian cuisine is very diverse and full of different tastes, aromas, and spices.
Return to your Hotel
We will pick you up around 4:30 a.m. or 5:00 p.m. with an air-conditioned minibus in the south, and then guide you back to the accommodation you have deposited. Step by step, all other participants of the activity will be dropped off until the entire tour group has completely reached their accommodations. - Please don't forget to rate us afterward! Thanks a lot
