Laem Sor Pagoda, Ko Samui

4.2
#6 of 17 in Historic Sites in Ko Samui
Head to the southwest corner of the island to admire Laem Sor Pagoda, a golden pagoda. Sitting at the end of a rocky beach, the pagoda possesses a shimmering gold sheen (though its exterior is actually made from yellow-colored tiles) that stands out strikingly against the blueness of the water behind it. The main pagoda provides plenty of angles for photography and, because this is a relatively little-known attraction, this quiet spot offers an atmosphere of reverence and contemplation that can be hard to find at other religious sites on the island.

  • It's not worth a special trip, but if in the SW area of Samui, seek it out, it is right on the coast... other things in the area to see too, it could be part of a self guided round the island day tour...  more »
  • A nice place to visit, but please remember to wear respectable clothing as this is a religious site.  more »
  • Lovely peaceful for a reflective few moments. We loved this end of the island - so much quieter and more authentic. Good parking. I think there was a coffee shop but not sure. Lots of dogs around swim...  more »

  • Nice Pagoda with sea views, but not a great beach area around there. I am not sure it's worth making a special trip to see, but if driving around the island, it might be worth a stop. There are other places to stop and check out in the area too... Do wear respectable clothes...
  • Nice pagoda but like the rest of things in Samui, it is just ok. Nothing special. Calm place by the sea and didnt see much tourists.
  • Great sea view at the south end of Joy Samui, but not really for the pagoda or beach.
  • Laem Sor Pagoda is a fairly recent addition to the growing number of Buddhist and Thai temples in Samui. Laem Sor Pagoda is located at the southern end of Bang Kao beach, in the quiet south-western corner of Koh Samui.
  • A quiet place. Not much of a tourist destination.
