Planning to go to Koh Samui but have little to no idea where to go for the best viewpoints on the island? Fret not! Koh Samui offers plenty of stunning places to visit, many of which provide that picture-perfect setting that you will remember forever!
That said, the only thing you have to do now is actually to know where those places are. After all, there’s no use claiming the island to be a spectacular place to go for the sights without knowing where to look!
Today, we’re going to share with you the top viewpoints you can visit in Koh Samui for a truly unforgettable experience:
1. Lamai Viewpoint
Although charging a small fee to reach Lamai Viewpoint, we truly believe it is worth your money. This is simply because, apart from Lamai Viewpoint itself, you gain access to two other places that look truly stunning. These are the Valentine Stone and the Siva Tara Waterfall. With a little bit of extra cash, you can enjoy a zip-line ride across the valley, giving you that exciting view over Lamai as well.
2. Lat Ko Viewpoint
If you are looking for a place that offers some of the best panoramic views of the sea, along with the genuinely fantastic scenery of the coast itself, Lat Ko Viewpoint is the way to go. It is found right between Chawing and Lamai. If you have a bike, you can park nearby and walk on the pathway overlooking the entire coastline to take in the stunning scenes. Also, if you want to snap a photo of the fantastic sunrise, here’s the place to do it!
3. Jungle Club Viewpoint
One of the most beautiful places you can ever be in is Jungle Club Viewpoint. It is a hillside resort that will give you an overview of the island itself. Apart from the stunning view, restaurants are available, allowing you to enjoy the beautiful scenery while enjoying some lovely Thai food. Just keep in mind that the drive to the resort may be a little hair-raising, but it is worth it.
4. Wat Phra Yai Viewpoint
Wat Pra Yai, the Big Buddha Temple, is a go-to place for one of Koh Samui’s landmarks. Apart from the towering golden statue itself, the temple is surrounded by stunning vistas, and the big highlight here is the panoramic view from the terrace. You can even see the north part of Koh Samui’s coastline, along with the airport. All in all, there are plenty of things to look at there—the beautiful temple and its stunning surroundings.
5. Koh Mae Koh Viewpoint
Although not on Koh Samui itself, Koh Mae Koh can easily be reached by a speed boat. Taking an hour to get to this place, you will be greeted by a stunning island preserved in its natural beauty. Once you do reach the island, there are two viewpoints you can visit. The first one is easily visited and will only take you a few minutes to reach. The second viewpoint is much farther, taking almost an hour to reach. However, it is worth it, as the view is astonishing. Just be sure to book a tour that lets you stay on the island long enough to make the trip!
Apart from the viewpoints mentioned so far, there are many more to discover on Koh Samui. However, the above viewpoints should be more than enough to satisfy even the most adventurous of souls. That said, it is easy to find yourself tearing your hair out trying to get to the places you want to for the perfect pictures. For that reason, we want to remind you always to have fun! After all, the trip is for you to relax and enjoy your life, and Koh Samui has all that you need to make sure of that.
