You must see Koh Samui at least once

Koh Samui trips: Located near the Big Buddha in the north of the island, Wat Plai Laem is a colourful and interesting Buddhist Temple. The temple features very ornate decor and art, an 18-arm image of Guanyin – the Goddess of Mercy – and a large white Chinese Buddha set on the lake. If you donate money for the upkeep of the temple you’ll be given a bag of food to throw to the teeming fish in the lake.

All over Thailand, the wat serves as a major centre for cultural festivals and Big Buddha Temple in Samui is no exception. During such festivals as Loy Kratong or Songkran, the temple becomes crowded with people making merit and enjoying the entertainment, food and markets set up in celebration. The beach nearby was originally called Bang Rak, but due to the prominence of the temple at its eastern end, it’s now commonly known as Big Buddha Beach. There are a number of hotels and guesthouses along its sandy shoreline and plenty of places to eat and shop. Discover a few extra info on Koh Samui Tours.
