Soak in the scenery and admire Buddhist art and architecture at Pagoda Khao Hua Jook. Recognizable by its ornate golden dome, the temple is surrounded by lush and tranquil nature. The small hill on which the pagoda is positioned offers excellent views of the Chaweng Lake and the surrounding countryside on one side, and the Samui airport on the other, making it a great vantage point for plane spotters. The pagoda is not accessible via public transportation, but you can reach it by private car or on an organized tour. Admission to the temple is free, but donations are accepted.

  • A well maintained Temple in Chaweng/Bophut area. The temple is located on a hill with very good view and you can see the runway at the airport very well. The temple seems to be well maintained and not so many tourists here as on the other temples in the area.

  • Amazing experience! Temple is nice and high in hills so you can see it from the whole Samui west side. But look from there is amazing 360 degrees view on the whole island and you are standing right above the airport.
  • Golden temple on the top of Chaweng. 360° view over Chaweng and airport. Just a few minutes away from the city. Nice walk to the top. Quiet. Worth visiting :)
  • Some of the best views of the northern part of Samui airport and Chaweng. Beautiful temple on top. Very beautifully

  • Nice way to the top. Steep approach! To get to the observation deck, you have 20 TB (Thai baht) pay, these are about 50 cent. Views worth: views of the airport and Chaweng Lake. Giant butterflies at the entrance to the temple.
