Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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 :)
  • Liinda place! If you have a vision of beautiful Chaweng. We drove maia to see swe a great walk, if you don't mind the heat, from Chaweng. When I went there was almost no tourist and was a fascinating visit!

  • Very impressed with this place, not crowded, picturesque. From the site of the temple overlooking Lake Chaweng and least Strip. You can hang for a long time, watching the landing and takeoff of aircraft.

  • Peaceful place, with beautiful panorama! The airport, at a glance, you can see the Phangan Island, close to the Lake and sea beauty!
