OverviewHide
Discover the Ko Samui most people never experience on an exhilarating 4x4 expedition. Climb into an 8-seater vehicle and rumble high into the jungle hills to reach the mystical Secret Garden. Created in 1976 by a 77-year-old man, this hilltop retreat is adorned with stunning statues of animals, deities, and human forms. Take in the sculptures and marvel at the sweeping views before continuing to a “rubber tapping” demonstration, where you’ll see how latex is collected. From here, wind to the fishing village of Hua Thanon, where progress has yet to erase the old ways of life. Journey along the rocky coast to one of the most beautiful, but rarely visited, temples of Ko Samui. The Laem Sor Pagoda, rises in golden splendor beside the blue sea for a one-of-a-kind photo opportunity. Finally, meet the family owners of coconut plantation and learn about his time-honored family businesses.
