Pickup at your Hotel
We will pick you up in an air-conditioned minibus to the morning program between 8:30 a.m. and 9:20 a.m. or in the afternoon between 1:20 p.m. and 2:15 p.m. at your specified accommodation, and then guide you to the first stop of the trip, in the south of Koh Samui. Step by step, all other participants are collected for this day trip until the entire travel group is completely together. Then your trip begins!
1st Stop. Waterfall 1
The Na Muang Waterfall 1 is one of the most popular waterfalls on Koh Samui. Due to the large natural swimming pool and high water level all year round, many visitors and locals come to see the natural spectacle. In contrast to many other waterfalls on Koh Samui, the access here is very easy.
2ndStop. Elephant riding
Now we continue to the 30-minute 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 in between.
3rd Stop. 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.
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.
5thStop. Golden Snake
The temple area of the Sila Ngu Temple is often used by local travel shows and television stars for performances. The Chedi was built in 1935 and contains the bones of the founder Mr. Seeton. A large, gold-colored snake died at this point and that was the reason for Mr. Seeton to build a temple there. Sila Ngu means "golden snake".
Return to your Hotel
We will pick you up around 1:15 p.m. or 5:30 pm. 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 day trip 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
