Eco Jungle Safari Tour around Koh Samui Including Lunch

73 reviews
Koh Samui is renowned as one of Thailand’s most idyllic islands, but you don’t have to spend all day at the beach. Escape the crowds and venture into the jungle on this thrilling 6-hour Jeep safari. Visit the Magic Buddha Garden, swim beneath the Namuang waterfall, tour a rubber plantation, and enjoy lunch with a mountain view. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.

Wat Phra Yai is one of the must-see statues on Koh Samui. The grandeur is astounding; large, imposing and beautiful, all at the same time. It will not take long to admire the statue and the rest of the property, but it is a worthwhile stop when visiting the island. Highly recommend!

It is another point where tourists can come to pay homage to the big Buddha. You can also go up to see the beautiful sunset. Free of charge The surrounding area has statues that can be photographed.

Jeepers creepers, this was by far the worst example of a Thai temple that I’ve seen and I’ve seen quite a few!
