Secret Buddha Garden, Ko Samui

(3.6/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • We went there through a trip we were on today but found it quite strange. There were not information signs to advise what we were seeing symbolised which would have helped.
