It's worth a visit if you're in the area but there really isn't much to see really. Some quirky statues and took some fab pics here but not really somewhere you'd spend hours of your day. Stop if you're passing or in the area but I'd probably not recommend coming over from the other side of the island for it.

It is not the best cultural centre of Thailand but it is ok for a change, to take a break from the beach or on a rainy day. We enjoyed it.

The most beautiful thing — is the entrance gate and several meters of inner part. The other inner part is poorly made of concrete sculptures that you can buy on local markets. And yep, it's quite place, nice nature, so on. You can get to this place for free, there are two paths from left and right, ≈50 meters from... More

This place is a must see! We stumbled upon it after seeing signs leaving our visit to the butterfly hill. It was a bit hard to find once going down the side streets but we eventually got there. It was beautiful. The garden itself is incredible but there were renovations going on (off season seems to be the time the... More

I wouldn't say this place is outstanding. On the other hand, there are not so many things to see on Samui, and this one is pretty nice. We experienced it together with other Lipa Noi attractions, at the same day, and it was the best of Lipa Noi attractions. No people, many buddhas and quite interesting sculptures. The entrance was...

Dusit Dhewa - this sign we kept passing on more spots around Koh Samui and we never knew what that was. Not on a map did we see any sign about it. Then once we got lost on our way home and passed it without noticing though (awestruck by the Wat before it we kept looking to the right, I... More

We have been very fortunate to like traveling and seeing new places, experiencing different cultures and different foods. When we were in Koh Samui, we did not want to go to the usual touristic sites such as Big Buddha, Mummy Monk, Snake Farm etc. We have seen 'big Buddha' in various places, seen mummies in Goa, British Museum etc. We...

In the deep in the jungles lays stone city and it's gorgeous. I was breathless when I entered there. All the place is full with monuments and beautiful statues. By the time I was there with my wife, they had repair works there and still it was so beautiful.
