Wat Khao Chedi, Ko Samui

4.9
#6 of 10 in Historic Sites in Ko Samui
Hike uphill to reach Wat Khao Chedi, a Chinese-Thai-style pagoda whose golden facade glitters in the sunlight. The temple reflects Srivijaya architecture and overlooks the area, offering excellent vistas of the bay and villages nearby. Take a turn around the temple to view the sculptures and monuments of Buddha. Refreshingly untouristy, the spot makes a perfect place to meditate in peace.
