Secret Buddha Garden, Ko Samui
(3.7/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Set atop one of the island's highest peaks, Secret Buddha Garden reveals a private sculpture collection in the middle of the jungle. Started in 1976 by a 77-year-old retired fruit farmer, the garden displays statues of animals, deities, and humans. Look carefully to find figures of Buddha, musicians, and the artist and his father holding hands. When you see a group of angel sculptures, you'll know the founder's tomb is nearby. Wear comfortable shoes when you go, as the attraction requires climbing many steep paths and steps. Use our Lipa Noi vacation planner to visit Secret Buddha Garden on your trip to Lipa Noi, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • This is a really impressive collection of carved buddhas and other statues set in the hills around a river. Well worth a visit. It's really calming and interesting.
